    The Ape Who Guards the Balance

    this book is so good. especially when the plot thickens. ramses is so brave and mature in this one. amelia and emerson make a wonderful duo as they try and solve the mystery. the best part is the ending, it is so twisted, i would have never of thought of it myself.

    Another Fun-Filled Excursion to Egypt

    The Amelia Peabody series sails on under full steam in The Ape Who Guards the Balance. The purchase of a copy of the Book of the Dead of questionable provenance sets in motion a set of events of dizzying complexity that only the wit of the Sitt Hakim, aided by the truculence of the Father of Curses and the multifarious skills of the usual suspects, can overcome. If there is sometimes a labored effort to give all of the ever-growing cast of characters a star turn, the faithful readers are always glad to see them again. An Egyptian mystery by Elizabeth Peters is always a vacation in itself.

    Time and time again!

    Once again Elizabeth Peters has put out an exceptional book. Though emotions tend to run a little high in this novle, the outcome has a twist which will satisfy any mystery lover. The only question left is how can this be toped? However, I have a feeling Peters will be back to suprise us all!

    NOT WHAT I EXPECTED

    I love books dealing with egyptology, but didn't really like this one. I've read other books on this subjuct by Elizabeth Peters, Barbara Michaelsl, Ellis Peters and enjoyed them very much but no so this one. The story line was shallow and it was way too stilted for me. I like historic novels, gothic, peroid, but had trouble with the language (although I realize it was necessary to the book). I'm not sure people actually talked that way even back then and it became tiring. Won't be reading any more from the series.
