4.0 out of 5 stars Amelia is beginning to irritate..., 17 April 2014

This review is from: The Last Camel Died at Noon (Amelia Peabody) (Kindle Edition)
I like to find a sizeable series of harmless books that I can dip into without being too taxed, and can read one after the other without waiting for a future publication date, and these fit the bill. This is the sixth in the series, and is much the same in pace and quality as the last five; a decent-ish story, descriptive scenes and old-fashioned (at times) dialogue - nice and harmless. But..... Amelia is seriously beginning to grate on my nerves. She has gone from being a no-nonsense forward thinking person in the first couple of books into a somewhat big headed and bossy harridan - constantly wanting to be proved right, constantly thinking that only she can manage things the right way, constantly going off on her own to prove to us and herself that she doesn't rely on a mere man, and worst of all constantly interrupting and cutting off her poor son, a child any parent would surely be proud to call their own, and who always seems to be on the right track to solve the mystery or to give us, as readers, some clues or insights into the story, but never, ever, ever gets the chance to do so. I find this really repetitive and frustrating, and her increasingly difficult to like. In fact, how her son or husband manage to put up with her is more of a mystery to me than any of the stories!
