review Cleopatra ☆ E-book, or Kindle E-pub Pposed impostor Cleopatra drive out the Romans and restore Egypt to its golden eraAs is the case with the majority of Haggard's works the story draws heavily upon adventure and exotic concepts The story told from the point of view of the Egyptian priest Harmachis is recounte.

review Cleopatra ☆ E-book, or Kindle E-pub The story is set in the Ptolemaic era of ancient Egyptian history and revolves around the survival of a dynasty bloodline protected by the Priesthood of Isis The main character Harmachis the living descendant of this bloodline is charged by the Priesthood to overthrow the su. Read this on my Kindle from a file on the Internet Archive I think As these things go it wasn t a bad scan As for the novel itself great fun and most likely an extremely unreliable source of information about things Ancient Egyptian As usual with literature of this period the attitude towards women is infuriating in entirely predictable ways and Cleopatra s power is ascribed entirely to preternatural beauty a notion that contemporary portraits tend to discredit The first person narrator is an interesting one a fictional rival for the throne from the older ancient culture who worship the older gods like Isis Harmachis is trained up at great length to insinuate himself into Cleopatra s palace assassinate her and take power Unfortunately he makes the mistake of falling for her it s a double mistake because Cleopatra who has distinct similarities to Elizabeth I doesn t fully give her heart away to anyone though she comes closest with Mark Anthony There s a secondary female character Charmion is that an Egyptian name edited to add it s Greek and was the name of one of Cleopatra s attendants according to Plutarch who manages to push the plot along with her jealousies and emotions The highlight from the teenage male perspective always Haggard s primary audience would be the grave robbing scene where Harmachis and Cleopatra break into an ancient Pharaoh s tomb and remove the jewels that are uite literally embedded in his corpse Were Haggard a modern author I would accuse him of writing for the screen at that point in his narrative Truly ghoulish especially the detail of a massive bat that attaches itself to the face of a murdered guard Anyway lots of page turning plot and not too much sappy stuff so the teenage boy reader in me had a great time with this one

review Cleopatra ☆ E-book, or Kindle E-pub D in biblical language being in the form of papyrus scrolls found in a tomb Haggard's portrait of Cleopatra is uite stunning revealing her wit her treachery and her overwhelming presence All of the characters are mixtures of good and evil and evoke both sympathy and loathing. This is not an easy read It s written in old timey English so unless you can read for instance Shakespeare fluently it will take some time As English is not my first language I was glad I read it on Kindle which has a good easy to use dictionaryHowever it is well worth the trouble The language gives the story a certain credibility The characters are both good and evil which makes them believable Haggard s knowledge of history and mythology is great and I learned some stuff I hadn t knownEven though Harmachis is a fictional character you will find yourself thinking this is plausible and this is how it really could have happened It gives the impression of really being based on scrolls found in Harmachis tomb
