4 of 5 people found the following review helpful By Mr. M. A. Bowles VINE VOICE on 2 Feb. 2006
Christine El Mahdy has raised her head above the parapet and put forward some controversial theories that will have you analyzing, contemplating and judging long after reading the book. Pyramids and the Sphinx are in vogue and bookshelves are heavy with academic research, general information and speculative theories. Finding the definitive book is a hard task especially as the original designers did not leave a workshop manual describing the reasons who, what, when, where and how. The author reviews Herodotus’s writings and argues the case that his accounts written many generations after the construction are inaccurate to the point of speculation. Christine El Mahdy has given her ideas on this much debated area and put forward some new concepts. Christine has pinned her colours to the mast of this solar barge and provided the reader with a passage back to the time of construction of the pyramids. The author provides an alternative, fresh view on Cheops, family, friends and the pyramid age with emphasis on the people: ‘psychological profiles’ and what they may have been strategically planning. Christine has taken you behind the public face of the early dynasties “Royal Family” and provides you with a different perspective complete with family feuds, power plays and intrigue. A solar influence is explored, who the pyramids were built for reasoned out and a ‘simple’ method for Pyramid construction described.
People familiar with Christine’s style will enjoy this book, especially if they have read Tutankhamun: The life and death of a boy king. A concept of “Sun worshippers” was explored in that book and is revisited here in detail.
