Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This kind of honesty always commands respect. This book covers the nuances of religious conflict through the memoirs of a successful doctor during pharaoh Akhenaton's monotheistic revolution. The narrator is completely honest about every detail of his life, insisting that he is writing about it for no one but himself, as his insights won't ever manage to change the world. The book is brilliant in its exploration of human behaviour and is incredibly witty and cynical in style. The historical accuracy of various details will impress those with pedantic knowledge of the ancient Mediterranean world.
