Overview

The Last Camel Died at Noon (Amelia Peabody Series #6) by Elizabeth Peters

It's true: the last camel is gone, leaving Amelia, Emerson and Ramses to bake under the desert sun in the winter of 1897. Armed with a mysterious note and map, they have been commissioned to locate a lost English aristocrat and his wife, who disappeared over a decade ago. In this tribute to H. Rider Haggard (King Solomon's Mines), the family marches into the desert where survival depends on solving a mystery as old as Ancient Egypt, and where they meet a young girl, Nefret, who will join their family and change their lives forever.

If you love suspense, comedy, drama, love, and romance, this is a series for you! I cannot put down these books. I finish one and can't wait to start the next.

I really enjoy reading anything by Barbara Peters, she "writes a good read". Her tongue in cheek depiction of Amelia, her inventive twists, her punning of the genre. I love it. I own all of her books and am always waiting for a new one.

I am a teenage girl who would describe myself as a little bit of a literary snob. I generally avoid a lot of the 'chick lit' out there in favor of thought-provoking reads and classics. However, when my friend shoved this book my way, I was pleasantly surprised. It's not great literature by any means, but it was just plain fun. A great plot, sense of humor and 'clean' romance filled this tale, and I read it in two days, unable to put it down. I would definitely seek out others in this series for further diversion from the heavier stuff 'which does get dry, admittedly'.

This is the sixth book in Elizabeth Peter's Amelia Peabody series. I love this series, and this book is no exception. It takes place in the Sudanese desert, and the Emerson's adopted daughter Nefret makes her first appearance in this book. As usual, the Emerson family fights against impossible odds to save not only themselves but an entire civilization. The story parallels several fun classic including H. Ryder Haggard's King Soloman's Mine and She and Wilkie Collins' The Moonstone. If you've read these books you'll enjoy The Last Camel Died at Noon even more, but it isn't absolutely necessary. I'm giving it four stars for its exceptional entertainment value.
