Gelesen von David Leeson

(4,651 Sterne; 159 Bewertungen)

G.A. Henty’s “tale of ancient Egypt” tells the story of Amuba, prince of the Rebu, who is taken captive when his people are conquered by the Egyptians, and then becomes the servant and companion of Chebron, son of the high priest of Osiris. A mystery unfolds as the lads find evidence of a murderous conspiracy within the ranks of the priesthood; but they must then flee for their lives when they unintentionally kill the cat selected as the successor to the Cat of Bubastes, one of the most sacred animals of Egypt. Amuba and Chebron are strong, courageous, and resourceful – but will this be enough to carry them beyond the long reach of the power of Egypt? (Summary by D. Leeson) (10 hr 46 min)

As a proof-listener at Librivox.org, I was fortunate to PL this book, read by David Leeson. I enjoyed the book a great deal, & David's reading only made it better! As someone who has some eye problems, I rely heavily on audiobooks. I'm now a big fan of G. A. Henty because of this book! David used different voices for each character, & that really enhanced the listening experience. I was eagerly awaiting each new chapter to see what happened next! I recommend this book for preteens, teenagers, & adults. Listening to the characters' adventures is exciting! It's also Christian-based (so it's clean) without being preachy, so it definitely won't offend those who don't want overbearing Christian content. I highly recommend it for anyone eager for a great adventure in ancient Egypt!

Excellent!

I just recently discovered this author, and am wholy enjoying his work. This story is the best that I've read to date. It's detailed but not bogged down by it, it's plot and characters are well thought out, it's got plenty of twists and turns to keep you guessing and just plain entertaining. The reader does an excellent job.

Great book.

Great book! Love Henty's books. The guy who is reading it though is not great. Very much takes away from how good the story is.

Excellent reader, great book!

Best of Henty's works is this. A must-read. My iPad is glitching, it should be 5 stars, not 4.5. Sorry.
