  "Great for a Fun, Light, Summer Read!" by RockinRenee (see profile) 05/30/09

Probably not the most sophisticated novel in the world, but it was lots of fun! I thought the stuff about Egyptian archaeology was interesting. The mystery was pretty easy to figure out, but the characters, especially of Amelia Peabody and Radcliffe Emerson were great. I found my self laughing by the end of the novel because of these two characters. Plus, the novel had a satisfying ending. I would definitely read the rest of the Amelia Peabody series next time I'm looking for a good summer read.

Amelia Peabody is a character one can't help but enjoy. She is strong willed, confident, and overall straightforward especially considering the time period. While reading this book I many of times laughed at the thoughts and comments Amelia made and even shared specific quotes from the book with friends.

This mystery was interesting and the quirky characters and their antics made the whole read quite enjoyable.
