Read in April, 2014

April 2014 - Re-reading this for the first time in probably 20 years. Really, really can't believe it, but I got about half way through and found myself with no desire to keep going. I think my love for it when I was younger was wrapped up in the serious ancient Egypt obsession that I had for several years. Without that, the book lost its magic for me. :( It's well written though, and I would encourage anyone who hasn't read it before to check it out!

Original Review - I have yet to tackle any other books by Mailer - but Ancient Evenings is one of my favorite books of all time. His portrait of ancient Egypt is absolutely amazing!
