Jocelyn Murray: Khu by Jocelyn Murray



This novel was too eavy on exposition and the action of the plot came in disconnected spurts The tension didn t build steadily toward a climax because there were too many stops and starts and too much unnecessary description of landscapes religious beliefs etc And the dangers to the main character and the Pharaoh were not very threatening It was obvious that they would always survive I Essays from the Visit of Mor Ignatius Zakka I Iwas to Heidelberg have read a lot ofistorical fiction set in Ancient Egypt and this one is one of my least favorites It was a slog to get to the end This is a work of fiction set in the ancient Middle East The opening chapter reminded me of the biblical story of Moses in the bullrushesA uick check of a few facts indicated that this is truly A Taste of Darkness (Mackenzie Vampires historical fictionThe writer builds the story around Khu the protagonist and does a fine job drawing the reader in and keeping the interest leveligh I wouldn t call the book a page turner partly because this is the kind of good prose I love that takes time setting the scenes and developing characters both main and secondaryAuthor Jocelyn Murray does all that and Murray develops a great story set in a land back in time when people lived in fear and with superstitions and evil forces were constantly at odds with the good I do not read much Historical fiction but I m glad I decided to read this one Khu A Tale of Ancient Egypt provides a riveting account of the ancient world and it can be clearly seen that the author In Darkest London has done a lot of research on the subject The map and appendix provided regarding the places and the Ancient Gods mentioned throughout the text provide credibility to the same I applaud the author for the effortBut besides the story of Ancient Egypt Khu is a wonderful tale of a young boy s strength and endurance of family and brotherhood and the victory of good over evil All scenariosave been beautifully depicted and if you are a fan of Naturalistless historical fiction this one is sure to keep you engrossed throughout Descriptions A PlentyThis novel was extremely well written with flawless passages that transported the reader to the Nile and surrounding deserts of Ancient Egypt The amount of these vivid descriptionsowever I could The MeatEater Fish and Game Cookbook: Recipes and Techniques for Every Hunter and Angler have done without I downloaded the audio version because I like the option of listening as well as reading but each time I listened to the story I would zone out during these long romanticized portals of the landscape Also why is this book called Khu Khu was only a minor character with a few back stories to illuminate another fictionalistorical character It was truly a story about Mentuhotep and I would Babys Mealtime have much ratherave ad is name in the title I kept waiting for Khu to take a prominent spot in the story work towards being this savior that was promised but e never did The story line was alright but stretched It was an entertaining story although I would ave rather it not dragged on for 300 pages or be named after a minor character Khu A Tale of Ancient Egypt was exactly that an engrossing tale about ancient Egypt If you The Infamous Ellen James (Infamous, have ever wanted toave a Samael Aun Weor, The Absolute Man history lesson in a culture that lived over 4000 years ago this would definitely be a book for your reading list It was very easy to immerse yourself into the past and into the vivid descriptions of what life mayave been likeKhu is one of the main characters of the story An orphaned child who saw unspeakable evil at a very young age A child who Dragonfrigate Wizard Halcyon Blithe (Halcyon Blithe, had been blessed by the gods and the fates Khua.
