I was interested in this book when I found in at the library because I like reading fiction set in ancient egypt and because it was about the Exodus. But I was disapointed. At some times, it's too rushed, and then at other times it drags on, making you want to skip pages. Also, the characters (one of the most important aspects of a book for me) just didn't draw me in and make me really like (or really hate) them. And...it was just the writing style, the unexplainable feel of the book that didn't work out for me. So, I wouldn't reccomend it.
