Nita Good Book

Lately, I've been reading quite a bit a romance, mostly historical and paranormal with a little contemporary mixed in. I also enjoy fantasy, urban fantasy, and history.

The Rise and Fall of Ancient Egypt - Toby A.H. Wilkinson This enjoyable history covers the start and end of Ancient Egypt and everything in between. In the introduction Wilkinson states, “Scholars and enthusiasts alike are inclined to look at pharaonic culture with misty-eyed reverence”. He reminds us that even while pharaohs, like Ramesses II, were making such wonderful monuments to the gods and themselves, much of the regular population was malnourished and poor. The book still does focus on the pharaohs’ lives and what monuments they built and what wars they lead, but Wilkinson stops here and there to remind us of some of the harsh realities of life in ancient Egypt under such extreme rulers.
