Publisher's Summary

Stumbling in the dark of an unfinished tomb beneath the sands of Saqqara, American tourist Tim Hope unknowingly passes through a time portal that leads to ancient Egypt: a time before the Sphinx, before the great pyramids of Giza, and long before the loss of his beloved Addy.

When he discovers that two other Americans preceded him through the time portal, Tim immerses himself in the ancient world to search for them. As he becomes more comfortable with the simpler, more immediate land, he finds himself irresistibly attracted to the delicate Meryt, a wbt-priestess for the god Re.

Learning that a seven-year famine has led to a plot to overthrow King Djoser, Tim discovers that his fate, the lives of the two Americans and the future of Egypt rest in the hands of the legendary Imhotep, master architect of the Step Pyramid, renowned physician and intimate adviser to King Djoser.

    Story
    "One of the best of the year!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Imhotep to be better than the print version?

    Didn't read print version, so no opinion.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Totally original concept from start to finish. Outstanding in every regard, with the caveat that it is long for this type of novel, and it does get abit involved with many characters and agendas, so attention must be paid.


    Which character – as performed by Clay Lomakayu – was your favorite?

    The American couple were impressive.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I tried!


    Any additional comments?

    I was provided this audiobook by Audioblast in exchange for a fair and unbiased review. Good timing, as once again I had it in my queue for regular downloading. ( Do you think there is some collusion there ? Mmmm? )
    All that said, this is truly an epic audio performance. The setting is exotic, the characters rich and realistic, the research clearly in depth, and the overall feel wonderfully fufilling.

    It does get bogged down abit at time, and could do with some editing , but on balance this is one of my favourites of the year, and is well worth the credit and the time for anyone.

    Story
    "There is no "x" in "escape""

    Entertaining story though it was a bit wordy and could have been made shorter without losing anything. It was quite well narrated with one glaring exception. The narrator pronounces the word "escape" as "exscape" and I found it grating, each of the 39 times it appears in the text.

    Story
    "SNOOZER"

    I was looking forward to reading this one, and was sorely disappointed... The pace is awful, and the story never seems to get anywhere... I gave up not quite halfway through... I read 8 books while trying very hard to get into and finish this one... Not really sure where the good reviews are coming from... Maybe the second half woulda made the book, but I can't work up the effort to keep going, and that's w/ a story w/ appealing historical potential... The narrator is subpar... Returned it...

    Story
    "Great walk back into ancient Egypt"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Imhotep to be better than the print version?

    Have no idea. Only did audio.


    What did you like best about this story?

    No one thing. Characters, plot, making it all come alive. Great novel. Sorry it ended.


    Have you listened to any of Clay Lomakayu’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No. No idea


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Well, it is 19 hours so no. But I was sorry it ended.


    Any additional comments?

    Pre-pyramids time comes alive. Author really sucks you in with detail, dialogue, and plot. Characters well fleshed out. Wonderful surprise. Always great to find a new author and a really good book.

    Story
    "the main character has a pedophile relationship"
    What disappointed you about Imhotep?

    The pedophile relationship between Tim (who is at least 30+ years old) and the young 12-13 year old Egyptian girl. there are several chapters prior to their sexual encounter, where Tim (or rather the author) begins to justify this relationship; taking us through the thinking of a pedophile. Not acceptable regardless of the circumstances. Then the author goes on in the following chapters giving us characters in support, and even pushing, this relationship as if the author knows it is not acceptable.

    Story
    "Unimaginative and Offensive"
    What disappointed you about Imhotep?

    A good portion of the book is justification for a man sleeping with a minor - It's Egypt and a different time!

    Story
    "Incredible! Time Travel to Egypt!"

    This book was great! I loved the time travel concept and different that it was Egypt and the pyramids!!
    Unbelievable glimpse into this period of history - fascinating facts about embalming and other day to day life. Terrific job of weaving present day historical knowledge into every day life 5000 years ago.
    Warning: some parts are brutal; highly descriptive and thought provoking - did not inspire nightmares or anything but did make me shudder!
    The book overall was very long - not sure if there is an abridged version, but it did go on and on in some sections.
    Well worth the credit and highly recommend!

    Story
    "Annoying narration"
    If you could sum up Imhotep in three words, what would they be?

    Slow but interesting


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Imhotep?

    Not any that have struck me so far


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Clay Lomakayu?

    I am not sure who but this narrator speaks with a very pronounced and loud whistling letter "S" that is so agonizingly annoying that I can only bear to listen to it for a few minutes at a time. He does the various voices well but tough to bear when simply narrating.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    I don't have any suggestions for this.


    Any additional comments?

    Interesting book if I can get past the narration.

    This was great! I live the historical aspect to the book. Although I hoped that one of the heroes, Btian had survived...
