Brajesh's Review: Tutankhamun - The Last Secret
I loved Christian Jacq's Ramses series so much, that I was quite excited when I got my hands on this book. I guess my big expectations from the book is what let me down.
However on a stand-alone basis, this is an interesting approach to tell the story of Egypt's freedom movement. The backdrop of the story has characters like Nasser, King Faroque, Suez Canal, CIA and Egyptian Intelligence services. The other story is around the myth of John Howard and Tutankhamun's legend. The myths, magic and mystery kept me engaged, but the end really let me down :( .
As I said, this book probably let me down on expectations and so did the ending. I still remain a big fan of Christian Jacq and I'm sure I will delve into his books at regular intervals given my interest in Egyptian History & Mythology
