Worth my money, for sure!
After reading "Napoleon's Pyramids" (which was free) I broke down and bought this book. (I normally only read the free stuff). This book was great! I like that the author based much of the information off of historical fact, and then takes the time at the end to let you know what he took liberties with. Ethan Gage is a lovable character and I felt connected to him and his journeys. I was slightly confused by some of the military words, but they were authentic to the timeframe of the story (and my iPhone told me what they meant.) I didn't get the ending I wanted, but we can't have it all, can we? A terrific book that I would recommend to anyone interested in history, adventure, Egypt, or just a great book!
