5 journalers for this copy...
I enjoyed this novel, but must warn future readers...you must stick with it for about 70 pages. At that point, the connections are made and then it is a page turner.

Received from Katethegreyt at our monthly meeting at Panera Bread.
I enjoyed this book, even though I had it figured out fairly soon. The way it was told in letters and journals from different points of view made it interesting.

Well, I've finally gotten around to reading this book, just in time for another Egyptian bookbox.
The first hundred or so pages, I just had to keep working at reading it, to find out where the story was going to go. The middle half, I wanted to find out how all the threads came together. And by the end, although I was still slightly confused, most of it came to a well-organized ending. Lots of wonderful ancient Egypt flavor here, tombs, excavations, Howard Carter, and some tongue-in-cheek humor too ;) A rather different story than I was expecting, and a very involved plot. I enjoy epistolary novels, but I did wish this one had chapters.
This is reserved for K00kaburra's Ancient Societies bookbox.

I tried to listen to an audio version of this book back in 2010, and wrote the following:
I listened to the first three disks and just couldn't get into the story. Maybe it was the narrators, who didn't really make the text accessible to me. After I listened to the fourth disk, I had to replay it because I didn't remember a single thing that happened. Talk about scary. After repeating the entire disk I found I still didn't much care about the story, so I'm giving it up.
I might try reading the book at some point; the narrators for this audio CD really weren't working for me.
Well, since this came back in my Ancient World Bookbox, maybe I'll try reading it after all :-p

I'm always fascinated by the strange migration of books. This one started in New York--about as far east in the U.S. as you can go -- and I found it yesterday in my local library -- about as far west in the U.S. as you can go. It's as if books have a life of their own. As to the story, it sounds interesting, but I haven't started it yet.
