Amelia Peabody and Radcliffe Emerson are married and settled into a quiet, English life. Yes; they are happy and yes; they are bored. In this installment, Amelia and Emerson ditch their baby with Evelyn and Walter and travel to finish a cursed dig. Amelia still endlessly expounds on her eccentric opinions, and Emerson is as vociferous as ever. The Curse of The Pharaohs is entertaining and an excellent addition to this series. As always, Barbara Rosenblat is wonderful with a variety of accents. You may notice that there are two narrators for this series: Barbara Rosenblat and Susan O'Malley. This is due to the fact that Blackstone Audio, Inc. and Recorded Books have both produced some of the installments. You do not have to switch narrators to enjoy each volume in this series if you stick with Recorded Books and Barbara Rosenblat. Some of the audiobooks for this series also have abridged additions. So, be careful.

I read the first Amelia Peabody mystery, but never seemed to get into the second so I decided to listen instead. I don't know if I will ever actually read the rest after listening to this narrator. She does some amazing voices and kept me extremely amused by giving such life to our heroine, Amelia. She kept the story moving along and never once was I bored!

I love this book! In fact, I love the whole series of books. Amelia Peabody is everything you could want in a character; funny, witty and with a hard edge that is at the same time endearing and loveable. What is so great is that she seems so real, I find myself really relating to how she feels sometimes being a bit of a tom boy myself. All of the characters are great and the story keeps you hooked from start to finish! Fantastic adventure series that I would recommend to anyone. In fact, we called our son Walter which we chose because we like this series so much :-)

Very enjoyable travelogue/historical mystery. Miss peabody unravels various clues whilst having to wait for her husband to regain his memory of being married to her.The last eleven years of their lives together.This all adds to the suspense and tests amelias patience to the limit.

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?
No. I love the stories but not the narration.
Who was your favorite character and why?
What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?
I have heard Barbara Rosenblat performing Emily Polifax and enjoyed her narration. I feel that Amelia's voice would be softer however. It just didn't sound like her for me. I've been reading and rereading these books for years and probably have too strong a perception of what the characters sound like..
