Interesting subject, but poor focus...,
Rezension bezieht sich auf: The Lost Tomb: In 1995, An American Egyptologist Discovered The Burial Site Of The Sons Of Ramesses Ii--this Is His (Gebundene Ausgabe)
This book is a fairly interesting read, thanks to the fascinating discovery of KV5. Enough background and history are provided to make the book accessible to the general reader (like me), and the discussion of the tomb really is incredible. Unfortunately, the author suffers from a lack of focus, jumping from topic to topic with little pattern or reason. The author's life, the discovery of the tomb, history, archaeological procedure, tourism, and commentary on the current state of Egypt are thrown together in an jumble, leaving the reader to sift out the interesting parts. Overall, not a bad read, but I'd hoped for more from this book.
