review 1: The only reason 'Sphinx' gets an extra star is because at least it wasn't a Christian conspiracy! What started as a promising story into Ancient Egyptian mysticism, a strange device and a skeptical protagonist quickly became quite tedious to read. I felt several parts could have been cut as they added nothing to the plot for starters. The epilogue really put the nail in the coffin, so to speak, as it entered full on ridiculous. What was good was that it got me reading on the side about ancient Egyptian beliefs as it's been a long time since I last indulged in their history. I also enjoyed the correlation between civil unrest in Egypt and her neighbouring countries in the 70's. Overall though an underwhelming read.
review 2: For the most part I enjoyed the book;
... more I enjoyed the references throughout to Egyptian archaeology, the mysteries of the atrarium and also the socio-economics of the period in which the book is set (Sadat's era). The last few chapters were disappointing where the plot seemed to take an about turn and dived in the completely fantastical and the apparent 'plot twist' in the final chapter was just baffling. As other reviewers have said, those last couple of chapters or so seem to belong to a different book! less

This was my holiday read and I loved it!! I especially loved the mix of serious to fantasy genre.
Read it last year and I think it was sad yet exciting!
un poco cansado pero bueno al final
Average story, a bit too long.
