From the author of Dracula. Set in England, the curse of an Egyptian female mummy haunts a collector who follows clues to undo the curse. A bit weak on the ending.

Great beginning, but fell short. Kept skipping around waiting for something to happen, which took a very long time (too much nonessential detail). Only finished the book because of who the author was, otherwise would have given up. Uneventful ending you could easily predict 1/3 of the way into it.(Boring read.)

I liked this better than Stoker's Dracula...but, then, i like mummies better than vampires. This is well written with very nice phrasing. Keeps you on the edge of your seat. A must for anyone who likes ancient Egypt.

The movie 'The Mummy' was made after this book, and the books great if you like mummies strangling people and all that. I you could have selective amnesia you could enjoy the suspense of it, but since most peolple have heard of 'The Mummy' know the mummy's the one killing people, it ruins the surprise.

Great book, kept me interested for the entire story. 1800's mummy/magic/mystery. The ending will keep you guessing.

this is a good book if you like horror stories or ones with mummies. This is a book about a man trying to help the father of a woman who he likes when he is harmed mysteriously in a room of Egyptian artifacts. The suspense keeps you going all the way to the end. The end of the story will suprise you!

The novel creates a very surreal dreamlike atmosphere and I think purposely overlooks explaining some details in order to draw the reader trance-like into the events that are overwhelming the characters. It is not the absolute masterpiece that 'Dracula' is, but it is a very unique and well worth reading tale of supernatural intrigue.
