A book that has changed my life !!!!!, 26. August 1999
I read this book in the winter of 1998. I knew of the bust of Nefertiti, but I knew nothing about her or Akhenaten. This book is startling fresh and opened my eyes to the wonders of the New Kingdom of Ancient Egypt, in particular Akhenaten, Nefertiti, the harmonious utopia of Amarna(Akhetaten) and the Aten religion. I'm now a Aten worshipper (In a very basic way) and I'm still facinated by the legacy that Akhenaten and Nefertiti left behind. I rushed out and bought the book - it's one of my favourites. I think that Nefertiti DID rule under an assumed name after Akhenaten - it makes perfect, logical sense ! I urge anyone seriously considering to find out about the Amarna period to read/buy this book ! I'm sure that Akhenaten and Nefertiti would be very happy that people are still interested in the Aten and that the Aten will continue to shine into the 21st Century ! Also many congratulations to Joyce Tyldesley for having written such a superb book.
