    Recommended for anyone curious about a civilization/society that spanned thousands of years

    Great mix of narrative history and detail with reference to the archaeological record. Undoubtedly controversial for its humanistic and practical take on the kings and peasants of ancient Egypt, it should become the standard primer for none specialists interested in the topic.

    Not that good.

    It was really informational but very boring. I couldn't contain much of the information because I was bored out of my mind reading this book and it felt like a chore every time i went to read. Any time I was reading my mind would start to wander so it was a complete waste of time. I at least saved myself from more bordom when I quite reading at page 100 (there were over 500 pages)

    Time: The Rising

    &star<_>~The Rising <br> &starf&starf&starf&starf<_>~ Viper's Journey <p> Viper placed one paw after the other on the crisp midnight sand. He could feel the cold stretching up through him. He spotted a small opening in a rock. They would stay there til night came again. <p> Viper could feel the sun setting, the kits were soon to starve. He didn't have enough strength to haul all five kits to the center of Desert Territory, or they would all die. So he would have to choose one kit. Blaze. Blaze was the one that Grass wanted to live. <br> It pained him to think of Grass. So beautiful, so innocent... <p> Blaze squirmed. The other kits lay motionless on the cold floor. Blaze would starve to death if they didn't get to Sunshine in time. Blaze mewled. <br> Viper ran across the sand, despite the cold pain. He saw his destination up ahead. <br> A giant, jagged, sandstone rock jutted out of the ground like a yellow fang, shading a giant slab of sandstone all day. Four young kits and a yellowish gold shecat lay on the sandstone. <br> "Are you Sunshine?" The shecat was startled by Viper's random apearance. <br> "And who is asking?" The shecat meowed. <br> "Oh, I apollogize. I am Viper, Grass' mate." <br> "I see. And who is that?" She motioned to Blaze, who was squirming at the scent of mothermilk. <br> "This is our only surviving kit. Blaze. Grass asked me to take him to you before she... died." <br> "Grass is dead? A kit survived a day without milk?" <br> "Yes and yes." <br> "What were her last words?" <br> "Blaze is special." <br> "Then I shal raise Blaze as one of my own." Viper ran up to the shecat and placed Blaze with the other kits, who were a half a moon older than her. "Poor dear. Lizard, Sand, let your new brother have milk. Come now." She picked up her other two kits, a brown tabby tom with green eyes and a sandy colored shecat with brown eyes, and placed them so that Blaze got the best spot.
