A thick, incredibly detailed and thorough look at life in ancient Egypt. The author certainly leaves no aspect of this ancient culture untouched. This makes the book excellent for research, but it isn't exactly enjoyable to read. The writing style is stiff and formal, and there isn't a single colored illustration in the book. ( )
