Het mysterie waar het hele boek om draait, de papyrusrollen van Toetanchamon, is saai en ongeloofwaardig. Ik heb nooit een greintje interesse gehad in die papyrusrollen behalve dan dat als ze gevonden zouden worden ik eindelijk klaar was met dit boek. Het idee dat de kopten stiekem de oude Egyptische religie aanhingen en het Christendom verweven was met dit geloof en Toetanchamon - een farao die maar 18 jaar oud is geworden en is gestorven lang voordat het Christendom überhaupt bestond - is één ...more

Christian Jacq az ókori Egyiptomban játszódó vagy éppen az ősi civilizáció feltárásán, megismerésén munkálkodó tudós személyiségek kalandjairól mesélő regények méltán híres szerzője. Arról a földről származik ő, ahol az egyiptológia majd' kétszáz éve nemzeti tudomány. Írói népszerűségében minden bizonnyal szerepet játszik, hogy Jacq egyiptológusi végzettséggel is rendelkezik, s bár tudományos kutatásban nem vesz részt, ezt a biografikus részletet kellő tudatossággal terjesztve műveinek a megbízh ...more

The book wasn't that fantastic. It felt like a inter-cross between Paulo Coelho and Michael Chrichton. Nonsensical emotional-philosophical bladding from Coelho and action with superheroes from Chrichton. In itself I liked the plot, but it could have been delivered much better. The characters did not feel very real and their reactions came of as shallow.

Fast paced book with unusual twists. Well-referenced historically. Has an unexpected ending that leaves the reader to draw their own conclusion.

De lo peorcito que he leído últimamente, y eso que leí cosas malas. Parece como si Dan Brown y Paulo Coelho se hubieran emborrachado juntos y escrito esto. Lo canjeo por cualquier cosa.

A bland cookie cutter adventure book. Poor character development, a combination of predictable and slightly bizarre events. A bit ridiculous in places. I didn't even finish reading it.
