Not Barbara Rosenblat

by anne c on Jun 1, 2012

The book is wonderful, and the audio recording is acceptable. However, Barbara Rosenblat already made a fantastic recording of this book, using different voices, which truly captured the characters.

Who says three's a crowd?

by eastcoastgal on Jul 15, 2007

When her husband's high-handed petition to excavate the Dahshoor Pyramids is denied, Amelia Peabody convinces him they must resign themselves to the paltry bits of rubble allotted them. Emerson is not called the "Father of Curses" for nothing and puts up an impressive fuss, but he has little choice in the matter and it seems they will have an uneventful season . . . until the grisly murder of an antiquities dealer suggests something sinister is going on very near their little dig site. As if this isn't enough to worry about, Amelia also has to keep her alarmingly precocious son, Ramses, from rushing headlong into danger, making for a unique sort of family outing indeed. It is fortunate that Ramses's affected speech impediment is not intended to be endearing, otherwise one might be tempted to get annoyed. However, the tactic is designed purely to annoy his Mama, so readers may find themselves even more in sympathy with Amelia than usual. The plot itself is refreshingly rich in detail, and readers will never feel that it lags or rushes. Peters offers a breathtaking depiction of Egypt in the late nineteenth century, but more than that she has created a truly unique and enjoyable family. Amelia and Emerson share a charmingly healthy relationship, and the good lady's discreet references to their "exertions" only add to the reader's enjoyment of the couple. With Ramses and his beloved cat Bastet rounding out the collection, it's small wonder that adventure and excitement seem to follow the Emersons wherever they go.
