The Perfect Combination does it again

There is little I can say about this book that I have not already said repeatedly about Books 1-5 of this series. The stories of Elizabeth Peters and the narration of Barbara Rosenblat are the perfect combination for wonderful audible listening. Peters writes the Peabody series with dry wit and humor, and Rosenblat delivers that wit and humor precisely as intended by the author.

This book involves the Emerson family in traveling across the desert to find "the Lost City" and rescue a young girl from the ancient culture of the City and take her back to civilization. In a nod to the novels of H. Ryder Haggard, Peters has stuffed this story with great adventure and derring-do, and Rosenblat makes it all exciting while being humorous. As with the rest of the series, there are many LOL moments. And I am always amazed at the talent of Barbara Rosenblat, who delivers British, American (from the South),Scots, Egyptian, French, German and other assorted Arabic accents and voices, with a voice of a timbre which allows her to make adult males, females, and children all believable.

Carry on, Peabody!

You Can't Beat Amelia

This is one of my favorites in a great series. It has the signature humor, fine characterization, and action that make every Amelia Peabody worth listening to. I've read them all, but Barbara Rosenblat's narration really makes these books soar. An important new character is added in this one, so don't miss it!
