The book starts out with a description of the Pharaoh's court as seen through the eyes of Nofret, a girl who was sold into slavery. I found the beginning somewhat interesting, although, with the exception of Nofret, the characters never quite came to life and the description of places and events lacked detail.
The surprise came with part 3 of the book when it turned into a retelling of the biblical story of Israel's Exodus from Egypt, complete with parting of the sea, etc. Where is the suspense in that?
The narrator's attempt to give color to the characters did not help either, especially with the male parts. All in all, its so, so. I've had better.

I enjoyed it~!
This book was great - it spanned the many lives on the throne of Egypt. The main character Nofret is a strong woman who I admired.. Although the narrator was slightly boring, I found I listened to the book twice.
