Parts of this book were fascinating . I was keen to learn from this writer's perspective about the history of Egypt and did however there was so much family history and so many names that it became confusing. By the end I found it hard to care about yet another cousin.
Some sections were interesting, but I found the whole book a mishmash or random thoughts. I think the well known author is the main reason that people would buy this book. I was disappointed after reading her novels
