I’m not sure what to really say about this one content wise. It collects the data we know about the Red Sea scrolls in one place and presents it in a way that’s easy to understand. Basically, it’s exactly what it says it is. 

The narrator was fantastic. The voice was absolutely perfect for this topic and it kept the topic light and fun while still informative. 

Thanks to NetGalley for the audio copy!

Thanks to NetGalley and Tantor Audio for the audiobook ARC!

The Red Sea Scrolls is a fascinating account of some groundbreaking finds in the Egyptian desert, and the new light shed on the construction of the pyramids. Though dense and scholarly, I found the text to be quite enjoyable. Definitely not a casual read, but not daunting either.

Really interesting account of how the pyramids were made. I found the historical background of the scrolls to be truly fascinating and this one kept me company during my long drives to and from work. Such a great narrative that I'm glad I got to listen to.

I absolutely LOVED this book! Ancient Egyptian history is often interpreted through small bits of information gleaned from the most unlikely places, and the pieces of papyri that were discovered opened new doors. As archaeologists began to decipher the small pieces, the history and story of those who were working on the Great Pyramid were discovered.

This book was well done, drawing the reader into the pages as though they were along for the excavation, and the subsequent deciphering of the materials. I truly enjoyed reading through this book! 
Egyptian history is among my favorite to study and read about. Reading about the Great Pyramid, the pharaoh who was building it, and the every day workers who were responsible for its creation was enjoyable. This book flows well, and keeps the readers engaged throughout.
