The Egyptian May 25, 2014
This is an incredible novel which I first read at age 10 and then again when I finished college. Two of my friends who are distinguished Egyptologists later told me the novel was quite accurate. Waltari based the book roughly on an ancient Egyptian story. Hollywood made the book into one of their "Sandals and Sand" movies of the 1950s starring Edmund Purdum. The book is excellent and should be read by anyone with a sincere interest in Ancient Egypt.
