Book Review: The Pharaoh's Cat by Maria Luisa Lang
I loved this book. Written by an art historian and amateur Egyptologist--and evidently, someone who loves cats, it kept me entertained from beginning to end.
A cat is magically endowed with the ability to speak and walk upright. He is then befriended by a young pharaoh, and their adventures begin. Ancient Egypt and her customs come to life, and that would have been enough for me to enjoy the book, but the story took unexpected turns that kept me at the edge of my seat--and often made me laugh.
The story is told in first person by the cat, who often gets into mischief and certainly has an attitude. I love how he interprets the world. I thought the cat was simply delightful. Of course, I am rather fond of cats.
I don't want to give too much away, but if you like cats, history and adventure, this book is for you.
