It s hardly believable, how sensitively and emotionally has M.Waltari analyzed life of Turms, man living tousands years ago. Just reading this book makes you clearly see all those ancients wonders, you have learned about in school. There is nothing to complain about, read this and your mind will softly drift in those magnificient past times...
