Tyldesley's strength has always been her storytelling, and here she is on top form Sunday Telegraph This excellent biography scores with a wealth of splendid detail. Independent [An] engaging reconstruction of [King Tutankhamen's] tomb discovery, family and life. Fluent in her subject, Tyldesley gives her own spin to the story in order to get beyond the sensational nonsense... Tyldesley does an admirable detective job of reconstructing the boy king's narrative. Kirkus reviews [An] authoritative book... If Tyldesley finds the curse stories empty nourishment, the core of her book reveals Egyptian history to be full of more satisfying riches. Sifting through the findings from Tutankhamen's tomb, and the arguments of Egyptologists since, she aims to resurrect the man behind the mask. She succeeds: Tutankhamen emerges as a credible figure, a ruler presiding over a turning point in history, when his father Akhenaten's heresies were abandoned and the polytheistic traditions revived... That has always been Tutankhamen's power: charm all who encounter him. As Tyldesley confesses, he kindled her schoolgirl fixation with ancient Egypt. She calls this 'my own personal version of Tutankhamen's curse', but if it inspires books like this, the rest of us may consider it a kind of blessing. Sunday Times Tyldesley's account of [Howard] Carter's momentous find and the clearance of the tomb is brought to life with contemporary quotes and colourful details... [Tyldesley is] a gifted storyteller... Her writing is crystal-clear and charmingly irreverent... She puts what little we know about Tutankhamun [sic] into context, giving a fascinating discussion of the discovery's social history. Nature [S]olidly researched and accessibly written. The range of topics covered is impressive. Guardian [Tutankhamen] is undeniably an entertaining read and full of interesting information... [Tyldesley] livens up her narrative with some arresting details... [E]njoyable. The Sunday Business Post (Ireland) In this well-researched study for the general reader, Tyldesley acknowledges the fragile nature of her biographical reconstructions, presenting conflicting theories and drawing careful conclusions. Highly recommended for all Egyptophiles. Library Journal

Tutankhamen Emerges From the Mists of Time. 11. Juli 2015
Von Maximiliano F Yofre - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Kindle Edition
As I say in my Amazon’s Home page I’m a history buff. Egypt’s history, obviously, has fascinated me since I was a kid.

Periodically an “Egyptian fever” overtakes me and I start reading most compulsively about pyramids, pharaohs, sphinxes, hieroglyphs and dynasties. Well it seems I’ve catch it again!

Joyce Tyldesly (1960) archeologist, Egyptologist, lecturer and author is evidently in love with this ancient culture. She has written numerous books about Egyptian queens, pharaohs, women, pyramids, Egyptian justice, etc. for adult and children readers.

This is an excellent, very readable and detailed history of how Tutankhamen’s tomb was discovered and treated by the most scientific methods of those times.

The author divides the book in two parts: Tutankhamen: life and death and Tutankhamen: life after death. Ms. Tyldesly presents step by step the discovery and extraction of the treasures of the tomb. Intrigues, conflicts, rivalry, methodology, politics, jealousy and human drama are described. In the second part a very succinct treatment of the “curse” is shown.

This book is treasure for Egyptian history fans and readers just interested in king Tut’s story.
Do not miss it!

really enjoyable, not just for egyptologists 2. Juli 2014
Von Sofia - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
This book is written by a person who clearly LOVES ancient Egypt. Good, because i do to. It is written allmost liek some kind of mystery book, uncovering the subject part by part. It tries hard to tell the whole story, in a really good way. It isn't as speculative as it could have been, i would rather say i Think it is really accurate and honest.
Many people Believe in the curse of Tutankhamen/Tutankhamun, but this book does a good job at telling the facts, not just the theories.
I really enjoyes Reading it, since it is written in a popular fashion that isnt just for scientists/archaelogists.
