Slowly working my way through Christie's works. I was excited to get to this one since the movie recently came out. It was a little slow going at first with a lot of character set up but I really enjoyed the twist in the end

Walking the Nile | Levison Wood

Pickpick

In 2013 Lev Wood started at a deceptively small spring in Rwanda said by some to be the modest beginning of the great Nile, and set out to walk the entire length of the river.

There‘s a lot of history of the counties he crosses, along with stories about and told by the people he meets along the way, and of course he describes the amazing landscapes. It‘s not an easy trek, but I enjoyed taking the journey with him. #readingafrica2022

Soubhiville @Hooked_on_books this is the first of my birthday audiobooks from the #LibroFM birthday gift you sent me. Thank you, I really liked it! 3d
Hooked_on_books Hooray! You‘re so welcome, and clearly you chose wisely. 😉 I‘m planning to listen to this one for the challenge, too. 3d

This was my #Egypt book for #ReadingAfrica2022: I gave it a good try, and it is well written, but too complex as an audiobook. It describes the rise to power of Haphepshut, a consort and regent in patriarchal ancient Egypt, who unusually became Pharoah, navigating complex gender and family roles and power conflicts. I found the core issues intriguing, as well as reading about an unfamiliar history.

I was reading this Goosebumps classic in a treehouse my dad built. A storm was brewing, and I read a line, something along the lines of 'he opened door and was hit with a blast of stale air' just as a gust of wind shook the tree house. I promptly closed the book and ran inside 😆 #throwbackthursday

Graywacke Good story. 🙂 4d

The Book of Two Ways | Jodi Picoult

I didn‘t expect to like this one as much as I did. Doing the audiobook version helped I think because it does get bogged down in details so I found parts easy to fall into background. Probably could have used a bit more editing. Ultimately though, it was an interestingly told story about life and the multiverse and liked most of the characters and their varying complexities.

I almost made this a pick, but I‘m not sure I liked it enough. The pacing was sloooooow and I struggled to stay interested. Once the murder *finally* happened, I had it figured out early and that‘s always a little disappointing. Still, it was well written (if dated) and I enjoyed the little bits of humor.

⭐️⭐️⭐️

This will be on the way home to you tomorrow, @persephone1408 😃

Death Comes As the End | Agatha Christie
post image
Pickpick

Agatha Christie's historical detective story set in Ancient Egypt around 2000 BC.

I wasn't sure whether X or Y was the murderer, and of course it was Z. It was an interesting experiment, but I did spend quite a bit of time trying to work out who the characters would be and how the story would unfold in one of Dame Agatha's more contemporary stories.
