Summary

At the festival of Osiris, loyal subjects of the pharaoh gather to pay homage to their leader. Only Taita, a wise and formidably gifted enunch slave, sees him as a symbol of the kingdom's fading glory. Danger surounds all those who oppose the ruling elite. But together with his protégés, Lostris, the beautiful 14-year-old daughter of his master Lord Intef, and the proud young army officer Tanus, Taita begins the long and dangerous journey towards his own glorious dream: to restore the majesty of the Pharaoh of Pharaohs on the glittering banks of the nile.

A little disappointed

Beautiful story and Tahita is still my most loved book character. BUT the reading is abridged and missing a lot of the story!!! Some of my very most favourite parts have been taken out. It's still a pleasure to listen to but I would recommend reading to the book witch is more complete.

Robbed

Can't express how disappointed I am with this bullet point version of River God It's been abridged almost beyond recognition , huge swathes of the original book have been omitted .
If you loved reading the book , this version is guaranteed to leave you asking what happened to the story

Why making abridged vertion?

The original is far better than this abridged vertion who takes away most of what makes this story compelling.
I was disapointed!
