I like how this book was written. It was like reading the life and love story of Cleopatra. It is well written in a method that people can simple understand the story of Cleopatra, Egypt and Rome. Well detailed and I think the author really did a amazing job on this.
Very little, if any , specific info regarding the 12 websites ( like how to obtain there, accommodation, prices, you know like a travel guide.. It appears that all the information was taken from few travel sites. I don't know how the " writer" conned Amazon to sell it. Is not worth the time to browse it ,let alone reading, much less paying. Pure garbage!
If only more android games were like this! Beautifully researched and a lot of fun. This android game is educational without seeming so. It has some very creative and special aspects. Far from being a carbon copy like so a lot of games, some true thought went into this one and the effect is a really fun and special game, one of my favourites this platform.
The building tree needs tweaking..it forces you to build in areas that simply aren't worth building in..the 3rd farm is a excellent example..your forced to begin building across the river when you still haven't created full use of the plains on the side of the river you begin on..theres lots of examples like this throughout the android game especially with farms where you are forced to build them before you actually need them.
I am a recently retired senior citizen who spend 1 to 3 hours everyday at my computer. This program is the most facinating one that I own. Installation of all 4 disks was instantaneous and flawless, navigation is so simple, I did not need to read the support file before using the program. I like the ability to go anywhere in the program including exit simply by passing the mouse over the top or bottom of any screen, or, on the screen images. Graphics are attractive and audio explanations are concise and clear. Written explanation give more detail for those who desire it. The amount of material covering all aspects of Egyptian history and geography is vast. I found the glossary helpful in explaining unfamiliar terms. The melody is pleasant and suited to the material presented. Surprisingly, I would equate the overall quality of this program with that of Microsoft's Encarta. I recommend this program to anyone who has a interest in learning anything about ancient Egypt. I feel like I have visited the websites without all the rush of crowds.
The 3 CD-ROM titles of this set that I can load are spectacular! But, the fourth is an older production, and I can't load and run it on any of four separate systems! I've asked Subjects Entertainment for support online, but so far have received no rsponse. Three disks for the price would seem like a amazing deal to me, but having one more in the box that won't run is a major disappointment.
These CD-ROMs have lots of information, amazing graphics and sound, but are very difficult to navigate. There is no method to exit or end. I had to shut down my computer to obtain it to stop. There is no point to using them if you can't use them easily. I would not recommend this product.
Eternal Egypt was the first Middle Eastern cd I bought, and at the time I loved it. Now I realize that there are more exciting cds out there, but I still consider it 's got six songs - all of them are very long and repetitive with the synthesizer overlay providing most of the change. The sound is not "authentic" as it has a lot of electronic instrumentation. For rhythms - it's got a masmoudi, zaar, and two fellahi pieces, as well as two others. The songs are amazing for practicing dance moves and experimenting with the rhythms. Also useful for more interpretive dances, especially with veil, as they are slow and trance-like.
I COMPLETELY concur with Brendanna's assessment as well as the others: turn the lights out, light a bunch of candles, and allow the melody from this cd make the rest of the atmosphere. Its hypnotic and erotic. Each time you listen you hear various instrument elements. I'm definitely going to look for more of this artist combination of Phil Thornton and Hossam Ramzy. Hossam is the percussion king in my book. The horns in the title track "Immortal Eqypt" are awesome, it leads the imagination to picture an ancient Egyptian celebratory procession through ancient town roads with all the pomp and circumstance these happenings beheld. My girlfriends love to entertain with belly dancing to this track, I love it!! Unfortunately, my cd got stuck in my car's player!! Fortunately I had already dubbed it to the pc. Definitely a amazing listen if you're a globe melody lover who appreciates the sophisticated blend of the modern and the ancient traditional. For parties I like to play various melody in each congregation space, this definitely gets massive rotation.
This is a amazing CD for almost everything! I listen to relax, I listen to energize, I listen while driving, while at work, or I use it to practice my bellydance moves. I can also place it on in the background almost anytime and I love it all the method through. I also recommend the Sabla Tolo CD by H.Ramzy if you wish something faster, more upbeat & purely percussional. These 2 CD's are a amazing balance & truly complement one another.
amazing for bellydance or just relaxing. i have been a bellydancer for years now and this is a unbelievable album, even for beginners! also has some very relaxing in case you need to wind down after a rough week, and it has a very nice dozens of melody so im sure there will be something that suits your mood!
I can't remember how old I was when I first read this book, but having always been a fan of ancient Egypt, I knew from the begin I'd have fun it. The first of our main characters, April, who's also quite interested in historical peoples, starts off feeling bitter and dejected because her semi-famous mother has sent her to live with a grandmother she barely knows, but that quickly changes when she meets Melanie. Melanie is just as imaginative as April, so the two quickly form a bond, and along with Melanie's small brother Marshall, eventually stumble upon a decrepit, empty lot behind a local store. Their fresh android game only contains the three of them at first, then slowly expands to contain Elizabeth, the fresh girl in their apartment building, and Toby and Ken, a couple of famous wise-crackers from their school. As the mystery and intrigue of the Egypt Android game grows, so does the danger in their town, though exactly what happens, I'll leave a mystery. Suffice it to say the gang may just be in over their heads.
The year this book was published was the first time I read it aloud to my sixth grade class. We all fell in love with the characters, except the red hair man with red dots. Every year after that until I retired I read the Egypt Android game to my sixth graders. I was asked the first day of school if I was going to read the Egypt Android game to them by those who had older brothers, sisters or neighbors who had been in my class before. For over twenty years I read that book aloud to a lot of kids and it never lost it's appeal or became out of date. I taught my kids that the true try of amazing literature was that it could pass the try of daughter and I had been talking about the book just a few days before it appeared. When I saw it I had to buy it for a fast reread. It still stood the try of time even though I have been retired for twenty- two years.
My daughters school chose this book as her needed summer reading between 5th and 6th grade. I had her read it aloud to me at bedtime so I could create sure she was responding to her packet correctly and it was a amazing book. It covered some historical Egyptian subjects in a method that would appeal to younger kids while also introducing some points that I wasn’t expecting. For instance, there is someone murdering children, there is a girl being left behind by her narcisstic mom, and there is a scary antique store owner that people test to avoid. I was confused as to why these subjects were being explored in a book that I expected to be only about Egyptian history but I think it was beneficial overall. This book allowed us to have a conversation about the importance of safety and the impact of judgement. We’ve had conversations on this subject several times but now that she’s older I think she was able to understand on a deeper level than she previously had and this book helped her gain perspective on that same level.
The one of two novels that first got me hooked on the mystery genre when I was still in elementary school. It's cute, and fast (at least now, a decade later). It also is what fed my interest into ancient civilizations and writing in general. It has a dear put in my heart and never disappoints the kid inside of me. Would recommend to parents looking for something their kids can read.
Our favorite book when we were children in the 60’s. Along with The Forgotten Door. This was the first book we read that had a multiracial cast. Also the first with a serious subplot. Wonderfully written. Stands the try of time-except no cell phones, but you hardly miss them.
I bought this for my son. It was his summer reading for 6th grade. He does not have fun reading but this kept his attention and he finish the book. He would talk about it with us. It may have been a school assignment but he ended up enjoying reading it also.
My son had to read this for his 6th grade summer reading. I read it with him. This is the most boring book I have ever read. Too a lot of info that probably aren’t even required to tell the story and it was so boring. I couldn’t wait to be done with this book, same with my son.
This was a very detailed and engrossing book. The description of the countryside, the time frame some of the people lived during those years and finally the actual crimes one man committed versus the community, his patients, his family and his children. While I wasn't shocked at some of what this doctor got away with in his practice (during the years he practiced medicine, not to mention raising children, times were so various and not necessarily for the better). Doctor's were placed on pedestals, people were less informed medically, there was a large chance of simple/poor folk being taken advantage of; some of his patients revered him, a lot of of his staff feared him. But what he did to his wife and boys, the method he treated them, was incomprehensible and disturbing beyond measure. (His high opinion of himself reminds me of the 1993 film "Malice" when Alec Baldwin says "you ask me if I have a God complex, allow me tell you something, I am God.") And that was 1993, Dr. Cavaness was practicing medicine long before 1993, in the back hill country of Small Egypt, a zone that time left behind.
