Requires a bit of translation to understand, in more then just one way. Due to when it was written, it uses the Greek forms for spelling most names (i.e., Amenophis vs Amenhotep). He also includes full passages in French, German, Hebrew... I was only able to parse some of those sections, since I'm not well versed in those languages. There wasn't much I didn't know already, but I found how he traces the history of Egypt through the recorded exploits of the pharaohs interesting.

An education work on the funeral practice of the ancient Egyptians. It serves as a study on religious mummification outlining the steps and procedures.

This is my favorite Anne Rice book. I've read it a number of times when I want to "check out" with a sure thing.
