Nefertiti: A Novel | Michelle Moran
Mehso-so

Interesting insight from the sisters perspective! It was nice gaining insight into ancient Egypt, but quite a bit was embellished

Moran has done it again. Historical fact mixed with fantastic story-telling brings Ancient Egypt to life. Nefertari is a character you instantly love; headstrong, smart, talented & caring. Ramesses II is painted in a new light, a young king with much to learn but also a man in love. Moran writes beautifully & manages to mix accurate historical fact & description with a well-paced plot full of politics & secrets. This is a 5 🌟 book

It is a wet miserable start to the day so delving into the heat of Egypt. Moran has written another great book where she has mixed story telling with historical fact. Loving this story, will Nefertari be able to get all of Egypt to see beyond her ancestors misdeeds.

Staying in Egypt for my next read. I really enjoyed Nefertiti so I have high hopes for this book. It is also the perfect lead up to my trip to the Tutankhamun exhibition at the end of the month

3.75 ⭐ and intriguing story about Nefertiti. Much of it is based on the author's research. I enjoy reading about other cultures in antiquity. This narrator is Nefertiti's sister. Amazing how advanced this civilization was.

Jilly6183 I dressed up as Nefertiti for a book report in the 4th grade and I 100% forgot about it until just now! 3mo
Crazeedi @Jilly6183 that would be a great costume 3mo

Meh. This just confirms my belief that Patterson is, at best, a very mediocre overrated writer. He tries to juggle too many plots here. Had he written about Tut's life, Carter's excavations, or his own efforts to solve the "murder" only, it would have been more interesting. Instead we get three plotlines that barely scratch the surface. 2 ?? 1/2

Moran has taken what we know about Nefertiti & the 18th Dynasty to create a novel full of political intrigue with alliances that change suddenly whilst people are ruled by a zealous Pharaoh & narcissistic Queen. I was swept away by this book as Mutnodjmet recounts her time living in the shadow of Nefertiti; her innocence offers a balanced view to the cruelty of royalty & politics.

JaneyWaneyB I couldn't fit in everything I wanted to say about this book so a few more comments from me...Moran uses description to help the reader imagine the beauty & culture of ancient Egypt. A must-read for anyone with a fondness for Ancient Egypt & a time we can only dream of. 5mo
Crazeedi How funny, I just ordered this book!! Glad you liked it, can't wait to read 5mo
JaneyWaneyB @Crazeedi I hope you enjoy it I couldn't put it down 5mo

Enjoying a steaming cup of tea in my new Captain America 🇺🇸 mug my brother got me from Disneyland Paris 💖

I'm really enjoying the tagged book. There is so much royal court politics with lies, alliances & plots. The twisted deeds & narcissism are keeping me hooked.
