    Review

    I realize this was written relatively long ago, however, the dialog is stilted and character development is almost nil. As for conveying a sense of ancient Egypt's rich culture and place in the world.....nothing.

    Highly Recommended

    A wonderful series keeps you reading and wanting to go to Egypt to visit the temples and tombs. I'm on book IV can't wait to finish. I enjoy how it closely relates to the Bible in many aspects.

    Interesting Story , Bible Tells it Better

    A father and two sons. The older son is a conniving snake. The younger has talent, drive and ethics. The father is pharaoh. Who will inherit the double crown? Where does Moses fit into this? Who gets the keys to the Land Rover?

    The book started out as a very good action adventure story. The cover demands attehtion. Unfortunately the characters are stale sterotypes and the action drags along.

    I think the author has talent and will check out another book soon, since I am interested ancient Egypt, in fiction and history. But Ramses the Son of Life did not curl my sandals.

    Enjoyed this book immensely but I also don't mind THICK writing.

    Dense. This book is dense--in a good way though since I really enjoyed the details! The world of ancient Egypt came to life for me in a way not previously experienced through books. I read all five books in the series and this is a great introduction to the following story lines. I was satisfied with the read altogether!

    I Also Recommend:

    A Disappointment though amusing if you're bored... really bored.

    As much as I would like to recommend this book to others, especially after having read reviews myself before buying the books, I can't. I've read a lot of stories about ancient Egypt and more recently regarding Ramses the Great and this is probably the most unfortunate in my opinion. I hate to say it because Jacques has received good, if not wonderful, reviews, but unless his other books are far better, I can't see why.<BR/>His characters and narration are transparent, worse the characters' speech and their costume is so entirely British it hurts; Egyptian's didn't have "a long, fine-featured face, a pencil-thin mustache." His story feels as if he wished it could be in the Royal Palaces of England but he's so enamored by the prospect of Ancient Egypt and its mysteries, he can't restrain himself and lets loose. Especially since this is on a subject that has had so many other novels, let alone research done about it, I can't understand how he came up with the overall design for this book.<BR/>Ultimately, I wish this book were better. Just leave something to guess about, hypothesize. There needs to be a good twist at the end. It's so predictable you can guess the end by the first chapters.<BR/>If you want a good book about Ancient Egypt, I would suggest these others. Being a student of Classic Civilization, I know these are at least truer to the times they stem from, if not researched in depth, and not to mention a little bit more interesting with plots that actually keep the reader interested in the outcome.

    The best book I have read for a long time!

    Christian Jacq's book on Egypt is fascinating! Very easy to read, it takes you back a few thousands years ago at the times of Ramses and his parents Seti and Tuya, King and Queen of Egypt. After reading this book, visiting Egypt and its historical sites becomes a must, as well as reading the 4 other books that Jacq has written on Ramses.
