Mrs. Amelia "Peabody' Emerson demonstrates her charming wit and eccentric humor. This series produced such a comically, vivid picture of this family with their superior attitudes, geological adventures, and warped mystery-solving spats. that they each had me laughing out loud. I have finally found a clean book series that provides me with wit, humor, and tons of new words to devour. This is a historical book in the series is a stand-alone mystery which can be read without previous knowledge. I am enjoying this clean book series immensely,
This is the sixth book of the series and by this time, Ramses was ten years old. This amazingly precocious child accompanied his active and intelligent parents on another trip to Egypt for the winter season, where they are personally acquainted with many of the locals. This child is so advanced, that he knows more about the secret place than his highly educated parents if not more sometimes, which is totally incomprehensible, but extremely entertaining. Of course, let's not forget that each book includes a young pair of lovers that need assistance, at least in Amelia's mind. But this time, they were on a mysterious mission to locate a well-known married couple that had disappeared in that general area many years ago, which is how the Emerson family became captives in an unknown city Yet they were treated like royalty the majority of their visit there. The mystery leads to suspense and intrigue to the adventure, focusing on the Emerson families unique relationships in helping them deal with their circumstances.
This historical mystery delivers clean and wholesome entertainment with a cast of quirky characters. Amelia has the utmost respect, desire, and love for her dear husband, Emerson, even though they enjoy their witty banter and try to outdo one another. This book revealed an adventure in an unknown city in Egypt, where the Emersons were held hostage. In the end, there was a disgusting display of savagery when there was a bloody battle of swords. Her mental powers were increased by the tension and her clarity of the situation became clear.
The author expresses herself so dramatically that it captures the reader's attention and keeps you enrapt. Just when you may begin to feel a little lost or bored, her personal outburst, usually toward Emerson or Ramses, will recapture your attention, or she might strike someone with her trusty parasol and then, just continue the story. She has a distinct way of portraying each intrinsically humorous experience, giving the reader a unique and uncommon perspective to observe. What a unique experience being held hostage with her husband and the inspector this time. Ms. Peters is the only one who could aptly describe it the way she was able to.
In my opinion, any romantic insinuations were referred to as charmingly in a discreet manner. Although this book does not always follow the social protocol, instead of taking leaps in many directions, the entertainment delivers great entertainment. The sparkling gems of dry wit were fabulous and plenty to be had! Oddly enough, there will most assuredly be reviews all over the chart for this writing, depending on the different perspectives from multi-faceted readers.
I listened to this gem of a story through Hoopla, which I access through my local library. It is thrilling when I discover that a series I enjoy in audio as much as I did this one, by the talented and versatile narrator, Susan O'Malley.
Elizabeth Peters is quite the storyteller and expresses herself so dramatically that it captures the reader's attention and compels them to journey on. Just when you may begin to feel a little lost or bored, her personal outburst will recapture your attention, or she might strike someone with her trusty umbrella, defend those she loves with her pistol, or slash away at whatever offends. I was delighted with the notes within the book to the reader to explain what the author was trying to convey. I hope you enjoy this experience s much as I did!
