Egypt Lives! 28. Januar 2000
Von Sarah Asher - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
A wonderful sequel to 'Temples, Tombs and Hieroglyphs', this book sets aside the well-scrutinized lives of famous pharoahs, and turns instead to the day-to-day life of the rest of Ancient Egypt. Much of the material is new to me, and I found it fascinating reading. Of course, Ms. Mertz could probably make the Boston Phonebook palatable; I would certainly read anything she chose to write. (I firmly believe she hangs out with Elizabeth Peters; Joan Hess occasionally dropping in to make a threesome..)
Enough fawning! Read this book! It's interesting! You can tell them I said so...

Wonderful Book 17. Februar 2000
Von - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch
I read this a while back and I must say, "jolly good writing," which of course is now my only expectation from Ms. Mertz/Peters/Michaels & any other pseudonyms she has chosen to go by.
As an aside, I was watching tv the other day and saw Ms. Mertz on an A&E Ancient Mysteries Special on Queen Maatkare Hatshepsut. That was Jolly Good too!

Loved it. This book is actually a textbook, but it's the most interesting textbook I've ever read. It really gives you a "feel" for daily life in ancient Egypt.

A book to love on many levels of interest 16. Oktober 2008
Von Armchair Interviews - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch
Barbara Mertz is also the real name of writers Elizabeth Peters and Barbara Michaels. She has written 37 books in the popular Amelia Peabody series (Amelia is a Victorian Egyptologist and archaeologist) and 29 suspense books as Michaels. Mertz received her doctorate in Egyptology in 1952, and her first book published was Temples, Tombs, and Hieroglyphs: a Popular History of Egyptology. Her first novel was published in 1966. This is the second edition of Black Land, Red Land, originally published in 1978.

This well-written and readable book is an excellent source of information on life in ancient Egypt. Mertz covers everything, including childhood, pets, women and queens, clothing, jewelry and cosmetics, towns and houses, education, magic, religion, science, medicine, mathematics, pyramid building, boats, mummification and tombs. All are fascinating, though my personal favorite is the chapter on painting and sculpture, and the Amarna period. The XVIII Dynasty has always fascinated me: the time of Queen Hatshepsut, Akhenaton, and Tutankhamon. It is difficult to imagine a kingdom and society that lasted for nearly 4,000 years; the U.S. is an infant in comparison. There is a chronology, map, notes, and a list of books for further reading. The line drawings and photographs enhance the text perfectly.

Readers of the Amelia Peabody and Vicky Bliss mysteries, anyone longing to travel to see the ancient wonders of Egypt, or anyone with an interest in archaeology, will love this book.

Armchair Interviews agrees.

As a Former Expat Who Lived 15 Years in Egypt, I Found this a Fresh, Remarkable Approach. 18. März 2015
Von Billbobanderson - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
Length: 432 pages.

Bearing in mind that I lived and worked in Egypt for nearly 25 percent of my 62 years on this planet. Well, 25 percent unless someone can somehow prove that I am a reincarnated pharaoh or visiting spaceman.

Readers of this book will appreciate my humor, as I also am confident the author would, were she to read this review.

One of the many bits of her wry humor was when she warns the squeamish to skip her description of a particularly gruesome bit. The then jabs the reader halphway through, stating, I told you...

Barbara Mertz is my type of writer. If I ever get off my duff to write of modern Egypt, i will want to appeal to the same mindset Mertz so gracefully educates regarding a topic that usually is rather dry. Well, it is dry if the writer is trying to stay close to the serious observations and discoveries.

Perhaps that dryness is why so many less serious and less informed writers author the, uh, aw, the heck with it, let's call it what it is, the kooky fantasy tales of the occult and visitors from some far flung Galaxy.

I have a somewhat vast library regarding ancient Egypt. I've taken two magnificent cruises to visit the tombs and temples between Luxor and Aswan, plus once visited Abu Simbel. Yet, I gained unspeakably more understanding from this one book, including the version narrated by Lorna Raver. Indeed, Raver did a terrific job of narration.

As a former expat having resided 15 years in Egypt, I found this to be a remarkable, fresh approach to teach us about ancient Egypt.

Therefore, I not only enthusiastically rate this at five stars. I recommend getting the Kindle book plus Whispersync so you can listen when you don't have time to read the book. I'd give Red Land, Black Land 10 stars if I could. Belongs in every historian's library.

What's more, I intend also to buy a printed copy next payday. It IS that good, for me anyway.
