    1. Let s go back to the time of the Pharaohs Incongruously, the main character is kind of what we would call an investigative journalist a young man who simply wants to interview all those around the recently deceased pharaoh, Akhenaten, to find out about him and the scandals surrounding his reign He is able to do this because his father is a well connected high official in the Egyptian bureaucracy and the father gives his son a letter of introduction to all these folks The young man interviews Akh [...]

    4. This is one of those books you would pick up on a whim and then hope it is going to be an average read But, this book turned out to be one of the best books I have read in a long time It will at some point be considered a classic, especially with the Nobel Prize for Literature tag I must admit I usually hate award winning books, and did not have much hope for Akhenaten After the recent unfortunate series of crap and or mediocre books I had the misfortune to select, this one was like a whiff of o [...]

    5. This is a slight, slim work, in ways than one Only 168 pages and very spare in style, I read this novella in little than two hours, but I didn t feel it had much impact it felt too lightweight to me Akhenaten has been called the first monotheist he s a terribly important historical figure and Ancient Egypt is to me a fascinating culture Naguib Mahfouz for his part is a celebrated author a Nobel Prize Winner So I m surprised I only liked this rather than loved it.I think it s something in how h [...]
