it was amazing

I highly enjoyed this book. Herodotus' descriptions of the Egyptians was a particular high point for me (his viewpoint is altogether interesting and amusing considering what is general knowledge now versus back in his time); but ancient Egyptian culture and mythology fascinates me. It gets a little bogged down with all the family lineage descriptions at times, but otherwise it makes for an interesting read if you love ancient history.
