Kurzbeschreibung

23. Februar 2010 Amelia Peabody Mysteries

“Passion among the pyramids. Forged antiquities. A country at war. A camel in the garden. A cameo by Lawrence of Arabia. Add in Peters’s trademark intelligent plotting, engaging characters, and stylish writing and we can hardly ask for anything more.”

Cincinnati Enquirer

 

One of the most beloved characters in mystery/suspense fiction, archeologist and Egyptologist Amelia Peabody bravely faces gravest peril in Cairo on the eve of World War One in New York Times bestselling Grandmaster Elizabeth Peters’s magnificent Egyptian adventure, He Shall Thunder in the Sky. The San Francisco Examiner calls these heart-racing exploits of Amelia and her courageous family, the Emersons, “pure delight.” But perhaps the New York Times Book Review states it best: “Between Amelia Peabody and Indiana Jones, it’s Amelia—in wit and daring—by a landslide.”

Amazon.de

He Shall Thunder in the Sky completes an internal quartet (which also includes Seeing a Large Cat, The Ape Who Guards the Balance, and The Falcon at the Portal) within Elizabeth Peters's legendary series starring Amelia Peabody, the intrepid Edwardian Egyptologist, her husband, Emerson, and her extended family. The quartet comprises not only Amelia's diary of those years but also parts of a mysterious "Manuscript H," an omniscient viewpoint that allows a glimpse into the minds of Amelia's son--the dashing and brilliant Ramses--and her ward, Nefret Forth, as they mature into adults with their own secrets and agendas. The Falcon at the Portal left readers hanging impatiently in the enormous rift that book's events gouged between Ramses and Nefret, both madly in love but unrelentingly proud.

The winter of 1914-15 finds the Peabody-Emerson family back in Cairo--now under British martial law, with the Suez Canal under constant threat of attack from the Ottoman Empire. The city's young Englishmen are rushing to enlist, except for Ramses, who is widely scorned for his pacifism. Yet Amelia and Emerson soon find out that Ramses is (literally) playing a mysterious and potentially explosive part in the conflict between Egyptian nationalists and the British authorities, for reasons both political and familial. Nefret, for her part, is still running a health clinic for the city's fallen women and trying to avoid the attentions of Percy, Amelia's odious nephew. In the meantime, the Emersons' excavations at Giza reveal an unexpected treasure so remarkable that the uneasy Amelia immediately senses the fine hand of Sethos, the Master Criminal (who through many previous books has alternately plagued her and protested his boundless affection for her), at work. The climax and denouement are entirely worth the price of admission--tying up a decade's worth of loose strings and explaining some nagging points so subtle that less observant readers might easily have missed them. It's Peters's great gift that in the grand scheme of things, no clues are wasted. Her plotting is wonderfully complex and intriguing, and it fits seamlessly into the detailed historical background she builds so carefully. It may have taken years for her to complete this four-part dance (she promises more Amelia Peabody mysteries in the future), but she's charmed us right out of our dancing slippers along the way. --Barrie Trinkle -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine vergriffene oder nicht verfügbare Ausgabe dieses Titels.

Pressestimmen

"* 'I can't wait for the next Peabody story... I really do think Elizabeth Peters' books are great entertainment.' Angela Rippon * 'A writer so popular that the public library has to keep her books under lock and key.' Washington Post Book World * 'Think Miss Marple with early feminist gloss crossed with Indiana Jones... accomplished entertainment.' Guardian" -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine vergriffene oder nicht verfügbare Ausgabe dieses Titels.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Endlich ! 24. November 2000
Von Ein Kunde
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
Nachdem ich "Der Fluch des Falken" gelesen hatte, habe ich schweren Herzens den Entschluß gefaßt, mich nach mehrjähriger Abstinenz wieder einem englischen Buch zu widmen. Mittlerweile habe ich es zweimal gelesen und werde es noch ein drittes Mal tun. Amelia, die mir wirklich ans Herz gewachsen ist, wächst in diesem Buch über sich hinaus (und registriert endlich, daß ihre "Kinder" erwachsen geworden sind). Ein wunderschönesm spannendes Buch, für "Einsteiger" ins Peabody-Thema aber wohl etwas verwirrend ...

5.0 von 5 Sternen I love you Elizabeth Peters 14. Juli 2000
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
Let me just say this, This book would be a great read for anybody. My Aunt introduced me to these books a few years ago and I have been in love with the whole Peabody/Emerson clan ever since. Ms. Peters has managed to create a world where you love the hate the villains and just plain love everybody else.I started to read "Thunder in the sky" late one night and had finished by 3 nights later. In this books she managed to tie up all the loose ends she left at the end of "Falcon at the Portal", and she did it quite neatly too. Even if Elizabeth Peters tied up the loose ends in the this book, she still left me wanting more. I hope to see more and soon. Elizabeth you rock.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Molly! 30. Mai 2008
Von Ulrike Ergenzinger VINE-PRODUKTTESTER
Format:Taschenbuch
Obwohl der Krieg die Familie sehr belastet - Emersons Neffen Willy und Johnny befinden sich in Frankreich - versuchen sie dennoch eine normale Exkavation durchzuführen.
Doch es bleibt nicht ruhig. Als Ramses von Bekannten zur großen Pyramide gerufen wird um ein "Kind" zu retten, macht er die Bekanntschaft von Molly Hamilton und ihrer Gouvernante Mrs. Nordstrom. Emerson, der die junge Dame sehr sympathisch findet lädt sie spontan zum Tee ein.
Außerdem müssen sich die Emersons erneut mit Percy rumschlagen, der immer noch einen Groll gegen Ramses hegt und mit Verschwörern und Spionen.
Mehr verrate ich euch nicht! Den Rest müsst ihr selber lesen! ;-)

5.0 von 5 Sternen The Ultimate Amelia! 2. August 2000
Von "jayzie1"
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
"He Shall Thunder in the Sky" is the the best of the Amelia Peabody mysteries. For those left hanging after "Falcon", Ms. Peters wraps all the loose ends up nicely and answers many questions about various characters.
This book is so complete in terms of story and character development one wonders if this is the last Amelia Peabody. The character arcs of Amelia and Emerson seem to have reached their peak. It's very interesting to see Amelia and Emerson try to protect their son and daughter throughout the book, but during the last hundred pages, they allow the children take control, not only of the predicament in which they find themselves, but also of their lives.
Perhaps addition installments will be renamed the Ramses Emerson mysteries?
Very highly recommended.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Peters has created yet another masterpiece! 27. Juli 2000
Von Ein Kunde
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
This book has everything! There is history, romance, action, comedy, adventure, suspense, and above all--mystery! I couldn't put the book down once I started. Those interested in Egypt will really love it, but even if you are not--it has so many other components that you will have to love it! This book resolves a lot of what happened in the last, much to my pleasure. After finishing the last book I was frantically waiting for the next to come out! It lived up to all of my wildest dreams and expectations! Peters has done it again!

5.0 von 5 Sternen He Shall Thunder In the Sky 27. Juli 2000
Von Ein Kunde
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
Elizabeth Peters has done it again- why aren't her books made into movies or at least a TV series! Her new book "He Shall Thunder in the Sky" takes the reader into the lives of people we have all gotten to know and love. I always feel empty for a few days after I finish reading about Amelia, Emerson, Ramses, Nefret, David and all the others. Once I began reading I couldn't put the book down. I recommend this book to all of Ms. Peters's many fans. I feel this book is one of the best ever! I can't wait for her next book. Please don't make us wait too long.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Longtime fans will love this satisfying book 25. Juli 2000
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
I read the first Amelia Peabody Emerson mystery, "Crocodile on the Sandbank," back in the mid-1980s, and instantly became a fan. Readers like me, who have been following this series for years, will definitely appreciate "He Shall Thunder," because it ties up a lot of loose ends and solves some mysteries that have been puzzling Amelia fans for years. (The only thing I could have done without in this book was the way the characters were constantly donning disguises, to the point where it got a bit ridiculous.) If you haven't yet met the Emerson family, I suggest going back to the beginning of the series. Peters does give a nice summary of the story so far at the start of the book, but if you really want to understand the characters and their motivations, go back and read the earlier books before tackling this one -- you'll be in for a treat!

4.0 von 5 Sternen Is Sethos still alive? 19. Juli 2000
Von Ein Kunde
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
I hope he is. We weren't told that he was definitely dead like Percy. It seems to me that we are left to take it for granted. Emerson would know for sure, as he did about Percy, and he may be under orders again not to mention it. There is plenty of room here for Sethos to return. The lung wound might not have been fatal (Nefret had been commenting on it when help arrived) and he could have passed out from blood loss. Isn't it odd that Emerson would not mention burial arrangements for his brother even though he mentions provisions for Molly and trying to do right by him in the past? It is such a glaring omission. Amelia carries us along with her plans to discuss moving the body back to England at a later date so we just assume he is dead.
Sethos might operate more freely if everybody thinks he is gone. Since he was (still is?) an agent for the British, he might get his own series of books.
This book did tie up some loose ends but created others.
