In this audio book, Barabara Rosenblat has captured Rameses to perfection. In addition to her other superb voices, she brings the precocious verbose youngster to life and make you chuckle. She also provides the foreign accents for the German Countess, the French archeologist, the American missionaries and the native Egyptian workers. Barbara doesn't just narrate the book she acts it with her voice so that the experience of listening is so much more enjoyable and does justice to the book.
I love the Elizabeth Peters "Amelia Peabody" books. The dry wit of her writing is unsurpassed. For fans of the books any of the audio books read by Barbara Rosenblat is a joy. She "does" different voices for all of the characters and brings them to life just as I imagined them to be when reading the book. Her Amelia is correct, dry and slightly supercilious,while her Emmerson is gruff and brusque. A joy to listen to. She understands the tongue in cheek humour of the books and will have you chuckling along in no time.
