    1. In the course of reviewing this book I ve come to understand why Book 1 received such a wide ranging set of reviews than this, Book 2 in the series those who were underwhelmed by the first book understandably did not continue reading the series I bought a stack of Christian Jacq novels from a bookstore a couple of years ago whilst on the prowl for historical fiction to do with ancient Egypt Christian Jacq seemed to be prominently displayed, and the words international bestseller were printed bo [...]


    2. When I was in highschool, my grandmother bought me this book because I told her once that I loved Ancient Egyptian History Tombs, Pyramids, Pharaohs and the like Well, I did But after I have read this I AM THOROUGHLY DISAPPOINTED.I read the first few chapters and it doesn t get any better per chapters It s just simply BORING The story revolves around the bold and confident leader, Ramses We are told that he is in no doubt secure with his leonine, canine, and pirate bodyguards, and most important [...]

    4. Very easy read, book 2 of a five book series, better than book 1 Covers the first 3 years of Ramses II reign as he consolidates his place as Pharaoh I enjoyed the historical details most about the book There is little depth in the characters, lots of court intrigue and an interesting take on Moses.



    5. This is the second book in the series and deals with the young Ramses II as he becomes Pharaoh and his early reign This volume is about the early building projects which Ramses started and the various intrigues in the court designed to overthrow Ramses in favor of his older brother.I found the reasoning behind all the buildings and monuments to be fascinating The thought was that building the temples and tombs was a way of honoring the gods and protecting Egypt When Ramses was crowned, his natur [...]


    6. I am very curious and interested about Ramses II I quite enjoyed the first book in this series but this sequel was not as good.The part of the story about Menelaus, Helen of Troy and Homer being in Egypt felt a bit far fetched, though there are certain historians that have proposed them all to have been alive at this time and that the Spartans might have landed there after the war There is even a school of thought that believes Helen may have spent the entire Trojan was in Egypt It was really th [...]


    7. The first book in this series, I liked this one, I didn t I really, really wanted to like it, and I tried I was fascinated by the author s idea of the Moses Ramses friendship and was eager to read his spin on that But I didn t even finish it Way Too much dialogue, and too many really non believable situations Also I found the many anachronisms really distracting.




    8. The book is amazing in that it is brimming with intrigues When you finish it, simply you can t wait for the remaining three books of the Ramses series


    9. Well, here we are in Book II of the five part series Plenty of intrigue still going on hardly unexpected, given all that happened in Book I Since Book II picks up nearly the day after Book I, not much has changed.We ve still got dissatisfied and sneaky older brother Shaanar, quietly poisoning any hypothetical well available Sister Dolora s husband Sary is not only dissatisfied he s spreading disastrous gossip in an effort to undermine the new Pharoah Menelaus the Greek is still in town, waiting [...]

    11. I just love ancient Egypt and reading about the culture The book was enjoyable, but not the page turner I was hoping to find The main storyline is interesting, but there needed to be a bit development there of the characters for me I found it sometime difficult to follow the timeline and wanted on occasion to know how many months years had actually passed between chapters or sections Since I have not read the first book in this series I am going to read that one, which may give me a different p [...]


    12. Fairly stilted shallow characterisation and standard plot lines make this a very middle of road book I wouldn t not say it was terrible It was certainly readable and if you re interested in historical fiction as I am you ll be prepared to overlook shortcomings The writer is a professional Egyptologist I believe so there is an element of authenticity in the descriptions of artefacts and cultural practices.


    13. Ve nihayet 2 Ramses M s r taht na oturmu , firavun olmu tur Ancak onu fazlas yla gen ve g z kara bulanlar vard r Bu durum halk n zerindeki g c n etkileyecek midir Ba ar s zl kabul edip kenara ekilecek mi yoksa Tanr lardan ald g ile yoluna devam edecek mi T m bunlar olurken ailesi ve dostlar ile ili kileri nas l ilerleyecek serinin bu ikinci kitab da tad na doyulmadan bitti Yaln z u ahsi fikrimi de belirtmeden ge emeyece im yazar Ramses i baya bir tutuyor ve Yahudilerden de pek ho lanm yor anla l [...]


    14. It s dramatically worse than the first book When I was a teenager at high school I read it once and it blew my mind Now I understand it wasn t that good However, I m definitely going to finish the rest of the series


    15. Me rindo con Christian Jacq Su estilo me parece tosco y sin emoci n Y lo que pod a interesarme de esta pentalog a que es la vida se Rams s tampoco me vale dado que por cada hecho real se inventa 15 ficticios Ni lo he terminado.



    16. Jacq continues his telling of Egyptian history of Ramses II and Moses this is the 2nd of 5 it is pretty average with nothing to make it overtly memorable though.



    17. The tale continues Ramses struggle with Shanaar, Moses personal discovery The power struggles So much is at stake


    18. After reading 1, I was immediately engaged in the story and eager to know what new characters might be introduced.


    19. TramaSiamo agli albori di quello che sarebbe divenuto forse il regno pi luminoso di tutta la millenaria storia egiziana Sethi I aveva ormai associato il figlio Ramses al trono del Regno delle due terre perch , dopo il superamento di varie prove, gli era sembrato che gli dei avessero previsto per lui un futuro assai luminoso La crescita spirituale del giovane principe non era per ancora certamente giunta ad una piena conclusione Nemmeno dopo la morte del padre e la sua susseguente ascesa al trono [...]


    20. 3 10Fino a poche pagine dalla fine questo volume sarebbe stato addirittura peggiore del precedente, tuttavia la faccenda di Mos risolleva un po il ritmo della storia a essere onesti la cosa trattata con la solita freddezza che ammazza qualsiasi immedesimazione, tuttavia un tentativo mal riuscito sempre meglio di niente Per il resto, si vede che il libro stato scritto insieme al precedente zero evoluzione dell autore, sempre i soliti dialoghi a copione, sbrodolate infodumpose, personaggi macchiet [...]


    21. He s young, handsome and rich He s married to the most beautiful woman in the land His name is Ramses and he s just become the new Pharaoh of Egypt But all is not as wonderful as it seems He s suffered a personal tragedy in his marriage His elder brother wants to usurp his throne Members of his court are lining up against him There have been attempts on his life And he lives with the fear that he won t measure up to the high standards needed in a Pharaoh Book II of the five book international be [...]


    22. The copy I have is tittled Ramses The Temple of a Million Years Apparantly it was renames at some point or there are different but simarily tittled novels by the same author Dr Jacq is described as a respected Egytologist and founder of the Ramses Institute in France on He has written many novels This book sounds almost like a novelization of translated hyroglyphics Of, course that could just be the writing style I happened across this novel in a book shop in Pattaya, Thailand Guess I will have [...]
