The Mummy Case (An Amelia Peabody Mystery, #3)The Mummy Case by Elizabeth Peters

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

I have to say, I didn't enjoy this Amelia Peabody as much as others. Amelia is long-winded, and I felt like this book could have been edited down by 30 or 40 pages. Also, they mystery being solved in this book ended up being the result of two groups of evil-doers, and at one point a character was referenced that for the life of me I could neither place nor locate in the book. I'm not going to give up on the series or anything, because it really wasn't that bad; just that other works have been better.

  1. I blame this one for making me stall out on the series ...

  2. Yeah, and what was up with Ramses's speech impediment? I was so tired of reading about "de cat" etc. I hope in the Lion in the Valley he's gotten over that.
