Vanished Years
Vanished Years

Edition: Paperback
Price: 8.89

3.0 out of 5 stars Dark and depressing., 3 Sep 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Vanished Years (Paperback)
Have loved all of Rupert's work, but this book I found tedious, depressing and disappointing, I found my self constantly lifting and putting it down, whereas his previous books I read cover to cover. Still I look forward to his next book.

The amino acid cysteine cannot be used as a supplement because it cannot enter the liver cells. Therefore, clinicians have tried to administer precursors of cysteine such as the compound acetylcysteine or the molecule S-adenosylmethionine (SAMe) which can reach the cells and be converted to cysteine there.

4.0 out of 5 stars Former people., 10 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A harrowing story detailing the lives of two aristocratic families, land owners and hierarchy post the revolution. A real eye opener, I hadn't realised the depth and intensity of suffering these people were to endure, the prolonged and systematic destruction of generations of family members.
Took the book on holiday with me as a pleasant trawl through the demise of the Russian aristo's, instead I couldnt put it down and was often close to tears. Its well written, detailed and gave me a new insight into how the new soviet age began. Its not a pleasant read but a must for anyone not familiar with the period.

A lavish and stunningly illustrated book with details and new discoveries I was surprised I hadn't come across before. A must have book for any 18th Dynasty enthusiast.

I found all the bits and pieces rather fiddly, and be aware the skin piercer is fierce. Gives a definitive reading, make sure you read and re read the instructions.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Akhenaten Colossi of Karnak, 28 Feb 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I was expecting an authoritative, academic and well researched book by this well known and respected egyptologist and historian and I was not disappointed. As the blurb states a complete catalogue of all the major fragments is included, as well as many black and white pictures and drawing illustrations. A must have edition for any enthusiast of the Amarna period.
