The Mummy or Ramses The Damned by Anne Rice
Book Title: The Mummy or Ramses The Damned.
Author: Anne Rice
This was my introduction to the work of Anne Rice. I have been wanting to read her stuff for some time. So I started here.
From the very first page I was captivated by this story. The writing was delicious, the descriptions beautiful, the attention to detail/historic detail amazing.
Ramses The Damned wakes up, being an immortal being, in the 20th Century to find a very different world around him from the one he left behind in the days of Ancient Egypt. I don’t really want to say anything as I don’t want to spoil any of the story. Just read it. Horror, murder, romance and a deep sadness cutting through it, this book is a wonderful journey through early 20th Century London and Egypt.
I loved every moment.
Highly recommended! *****
