Reviews - What do customers think about Mara, Daughter of the Nile (Puffin Story Books)?

Engrossing...  Aug 4, 2007
Just enough romance to keep you hooked, completely clean. Lots of tension between right and wrong. Good character development.
 
mara rules!  Jun 5, 2007
i read this book many years ago on a summer reading list & enjoyed it so much that i own several copies that i still read. this was my first introduction to ancient egypt, pharaohs who were female, river travel on the nile,etc. it is an engrossing adventure that a tween or adult would enjoy. mara made an impression on me because of her guts & sharp mind & any book with a ballsy heroine who achieves way more than what she aimed for is okay by me.enjoy!
 
One of the best books I ever read.  Feb 9, 2007
This is probably one of my favorite books. It is adventurous and I am learning about Egypt this year. It really gets you psyched about learning about Egypt and people who lived at that time. I think Eloise should make a sequel or get the book made into a movie.
 
Egyptian Masterpiece  Jan 1, 2007
I honestly don't remember when I bought this book, was probably my sophomore or junior year of HS, but I'm a freshman in college now...and I'll still rank it amongst the best pieces of literature I've ever read.

Whether it was the playful (albeit dangerous at times) banter between her and Sheftu or the stunning descriptions of the lotus gardens this book is a masterpiece and my only criticism was that it was not longer......
 
A stimulating and heart-warming book  Nov 28, 2006
I was 14 years old when I first read this enchanting masterpiece. It has great characters, great romance, great plot, not to mention just plain suspense.

This book had me captured after about the third or so chapter (or whenever it was when she became Sheftu's slave) and I was instantly hooked, reading for hours at night.

No it is not historically accurate with the queen being the villian, but it's just a novel! It is for enjoyment, and that is certainly what it is.

The only flaw is that it's somewhat slow paced (atleast it was for me at the very beginning). I couldn't get into it with the first chapter, which is the key into to any novel, but was sucked in once I read more into it.

If you are hesitant about reading this book, don't be, for it is surely worth your time.
