This was not my first Elizabeth Peters / Amelia Peabody book, and I didn't like this one as much as I did others that I've read. I found it a bit confusing, as it jumped around a lot. It was suggested reading for my dd's high school world history class.

I really loved some of the lines in this book:

"I see nothing wrong with comfort if it does not interfere with efficiency."

"The facts will be less alarming that the fancies a loving imagination can invent."

"Contemplate the future with courage and optimism."
