4.0 out of 5 stars A good romp right up until the last 100 pages
I confess to buying this book mainly because so much of it was located in the Gilf Kebir, an area of Egypt which I know and is very close to my heart. But I also enjoy a good thriller.

The book starts off very well. The rather gory story of the transport of an unidentified object into the Western Desert by the priests of Old Kingdom Egypt is followed by a...

3.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing ending
I like the author's writing, and I greatly enjoyed his two previous books. This is in many ways a bigger work, and displays his very deep and thorough knowledge of ancient Egypt, as well as being an exciting and compelling chase thriller as the hero searches for perhaps the most famous - or notorious - of Egypt's lost relics, the Benben stone. My problem is the ending,...

As with other Paul Sussman books this is one that is hard to put down. You really feel you are in Egypt.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fast-moving, edge of your seat thriller, 21 April 2010
By 
This review is from: The Hidden Oasis (Paperback)
We all know, deep down, that there is no ark of the covenant and no holy grail. But what Paul Sussman does is re-kindle that deep down, hidden desire in all of us to believe that these ancient relics actually exist and could be discovered if only we knew where to look! In his book The Hidden Oasis you believe it could be there, out in the desert somewhere and you are dragged along on the race to get there first. This is a really fast moving and gripping thriller which takes you on a journey through Egypt's big cities and small villages twisting and turning through ancient streets and out into the vast desert. You feel claustraphobic andf threatened and you sense the size and wonder of the vast desert. I can honestly say I didn't see the end coming but when it did I had a big smile on my face because of the final twist. Paul Sussman really knows his stuff and he knows how to keep you guessing too.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Hidden Oasis, 29 Dec. 2010
This review is from: The Hidden Oasis (Paperback)
The Seller
Book arrived promptly and condition was as good if not better than described, value for money - excellent. Would certainly deal with the seller again.

The Book
A really good read which got off to a cracking start - only possible regret was that I passed it on to my old Auntie, having forgotten it has a wee bit of sexual content. Still never mind - it might have made her Christmas!

thoroughly entertaining, a gripping read right from the start. I couldn't put it down and though normally a slow reader I finished this one quickly. Thumbs up, I'm off to read The Lost Army of Chambyses now...
