The glowing paintings include the sun god Ra on the Night Boat, a delicate image of Nebamun hunting in the marshes, and, from the tomb of the pharaoh Ramses VI, a grand ceiling mural decorated with astronomical scenes.Hide synopsis

The book wasnt what i expected, i expected more than it gave.
It was ok and gave me information regarding the chapters of Egyptian life after death but not to the intent i expected.
There could have been so much more.
This is a classic book; and one which you should buy if you're interested in Egyptology, especially if you want to know more about hieroglyphs and about the ideology of life after death in Ancient Egypt.
I would suggest this book to anyone interested in religion, philosophy, mythology, linguistics and archeology.
The Book of the Dead involuntarily sheds a light on the possible origins of the Bible, Qur'an and Tanakh.
My advice to you is to read this book, because you deserve to know.
