I didn’t get very far into this before giving up. Some really dull and clunky passages, a point of view that seemed to wander from a child to a goddess in the course of a paragraph, an Egyptian dynasty that has for some reason adopted a dating system devised (in our world) by a Christian monk in the sixth century; each a brick in the wall that stopped me reading further.

Loved this book. I think one of the things about it is that I don't think I've ever read such a twist before.
