      Brace yourselves. I am about to commit Egypt Nerd Heresy. This is the best work of Egyptian historical fiction out there. Yeah. I said it. The best. I have found a writer who, in my opinion, outclasses Pauline Gedge in bringing ancient Egypt masterfully, near-flawlessly to life. That's not to say I don't still love Pauline Gedge. Of course I do. It is to say that if you are not currently reading The Maya Papyrus, you are not doing yourself any favors. Welcome the raising of the bar, O Fans of Eg [...]

      This was the first time I have read any Egyptian historical fiction and was unsure if I would enjoy it. The book was recommended to me by an author friend who really loved it.I really enjoyed this book a lot. It took me to a world I had never really thought about spending time in and did a great job of making me feel as though I was actually there. The characters were so well-developed that they came fully to life and seemed real. As I don't know much about Egyptian history, I can't vouch for ho [...]

      A Long Sweeping Drama. I read up more for enjoyment so I will leave the accuracy of historical fiction to those more knowledgeable on Egyptian history. But what I can say is this is a well-crafted story with characters right out of the past. Tutankhamun, the boy King, Nefertiti, the legendary beauty, Akhenaten and many others are filled out in a believable way that keeps you engaged. Murder, political infighting and intrigue as well as ambition and treachery make for a great story that keeps you [...]

      The Maya Papyrus is a book on an epic scale, traversing the reigns of Thutmose IV through to Horemheb, taking the reader right through the Amarna period, from its development to its final end. It's a truly gripping read, filled with intrigue – and one of the best fictional depictions of the Amarna period I've read, right up there with Pauline Gedge's The Twelfth Transforming.Intercut within the third-person narrative are fragments from Maya's (historically, a high-ranked courtier in the court [...]

      A very spellbinding book which other readers like me will find hard to put down. The most authentic novel for that period of time. The kind of book you would read again. A very spellbinding book which other readers like me will find hard to put down. I would certainly read other books by this author.

      The Maya PapyrusBy: Richard CoadyI thoroughly enjoyed this historical fiction book by Richard Coady. From the synopsis, I was expecting something a little different, but after reading it, I learned many things about the kings of Egypt. This book is a detailed account of their lives involving war, murder, and treachery that survived by Maya writing down the accounts on papyrus. Archaeologists have unearthed documents in Nefertiti’s tomb that detail the generations before King Tutankhamun. All t [...]

      a colourful rendition of the history of the late 18th dynasty of ancient EgyptRichard Coady brings us a stark, gritty and informative novelisation of the Amarna period of ancient Egyptian history in The Maya Papyrus, one that details the lives of some of the most famous Pharaohs ever, such as Amenhotep III, Akhenaten and Tutankhamum.The fragments of first-person narration from Maya -- Tutankhamun's treasurer -- gives the insight of direct thoughts and feelings from a person who existed at the ti [...]

      Always curious how a story starts, when the first thing you see is a list of the cast of characters alphabetically, it gives you warning how many characters are involved, and how it might be confusing, needing a reference point. As such, you can only imagine how involved the story is with a list like this.Set in Egypt, this is the story of the continuing struggle for the reign of King, and their heirs. The story is told by Maya, the royal courtier and historian, and what he has written. In addit [...]

      3.8 stars Compelling Historical FictionMr. Coady spent 12 years researching and writing this titillating Historical Fiction novel of ancient Egypt. In doing so, he has produced a novel that no history fan can put down, though the dishes go unwashed, and sleep is elusive for several days. As I know very little of Egyptian history, I was constantly looking up Mr. Coady's names to see where the known is separated from the guessing. The author, unlike many historical fiction writers, has taken know [...]

      Thuya is the wife from Hell. She has ambitions far beyond her station and even her husband dare not go against her despite the dangers. She engineers the marriage between her daughter, Tiye, and the Pharaoh Amenhotep. Not content, however, with achieving a new and very high status, she ensures, by her flagrant manipulation of her daughter, that the dynasty she has founded will continue. Her sons, Aye and Nakhtmin, are placed close to the Pharaoh and it is Maya, son of Aye, who is our narrator.Hi [...]

      The Maya Papyrus by Richard Coady is a 676 page historical fiction book, written in past tense, first person, from the perspective of Maya. I commend Coady on his extensive research of not only the people but of the living conditions and Egypt itself. I love when a writer can bring the past alive and not have it sound like a boring retread. I was completely sucked into the story from the first few pages. Coady keeps the plot moving at a great pace and the descriptions transported me straight to [...]

      4.5 stars.Fascinating book about a dynasty 5000 years ago. Part of the story is seen through the eyes of a man close to the throne. The other part of the story describes all the interesting and sometimes terrible things that happen to the pharaohs and those around them.Well written. At the beginning I had a little trouble with all the names of the many characters. After about 400 pages and about 5 pharaohs, it got a little boring and it was a bit of a struggle to keep reading. But I'm glad I did [...]

      Ancient Egypt fans will love itIt's long but interesting; almost a murder mystery take on historical figures. Tut included but the period before and after him are some of the most interesting. There are a few points where the dialogue seems odd - had a hard time imagining them speaking this way - but that's the only nit I can pick.

      Excellent!! Extremely thorough yet never boring story of this very intriguing period of Egyptian history. Loved the take on some of the storyline versus some of the others I have read. I thoroughly enjoyed this book!
