This makes ancient times interesting. I liked how they told about the different classes of people and how they were treated. Also that if you were educated you definitely had a better life. This young man was very lucky that he had a rich uncle who provided for his education. The young boy was already a very smart on his own so he excelled in many things that made him stand out above the others. However that came to his own detriment. I could hardly put the book down. If you like Egyptian times you'll like this.
