Summary

An epic re-creation of the exhilarating and mysterious time when the Sun King ruled Egypt, Ramses, the Son of Light, has become the rage in France. With over two million copies sold, it is the greatest publishing phenomenon to hit the shelves there in 20 years. Rameses is only 14 when his father, the Pharaoh Seti, begins testing his true mettle. Being the younger of two sons, the proud Ramses has a problem with being relegated to second place. Now, with increasing attention from the Pharaoh, along with the formal and military education afforded him, he dares to hope that he may inherit the empire after all. This spell-binding novel of court intrigue, treason, and romantic adventure is a rare look at Egyptian history. The entire family will enjoy the inside view of daily life and the secret rituals involved in being a pharaoh's son. Veteran narrator George Guidall's reading of this enchanting historical novel is matchless.

Bland

The boy Ramses is a cliche of perfection: the fastses swimmer, the best archer, a perfect scribe. His ethics and beliefs are modern humninatarian. In short: he is a bore. Any obstacles he encounter on his way is overcome within a page or two and even though he travels up and down the Nile the descriptions of ancient Egypt are so generel and non descript that I never felt I was there. In my oppion this is only for very forgiving hardcore fans of historical fiction with egyptian setting.

Teenager drama with little insight into Egyptian culture

Performance is annoying with the reader trying to impersonate a woman, an old man and any other character.
Ramses makes me yawn. The perfect body, perfect lover, perfect friend, surrounded of shallow characters.
Feels like a great teenager book.
