Our book club members began to read this as our October selection for discussion. After receiving complaints from several of us, our group moderator selected another book for us to read. Since I had already ordered this one, and had subsequently learned about the substitution, my interest in Out of Egypt was piqued. Sorry to say, that this is the only one of about 1,000 or more books I read a year, that I just could not read beyond a third of the way. It seems as though the author got in a rut and was replaying the activities and conversations over and over. I understand that actions can be limited and societal activity stifled by many outside and internal forces. The best I can say for this work is that the scenes are richly detailed. The writer has a keen eye for the depth and layered texture of surroundings and people. On the other hand, you should read it if you are having problems falling asleep. If anything, this will work better than any sleeping aid, including warm milk.
