On a side note (to the few that have read the Amelia Peabody series)… - Melodramatic, corsetted mistress of the obscure

On a side note (to the few that have read the Amelia Peabody series) I saw a review that complained about the jumps to the other manuscripts. At which, my mind boggled. Not only because it's just the author's way of changing POV, but because it really does tell amusing bits of the story.

Now, "Manuscript H" is decared to be of unknown authorship, but it's pretty obvious that Ramses wrote most of it. Then there's the editorial tidbit that it also seems to have had additions from other hands (obviously both David AND Nefret, from the in-mind detail). So, reading some of what Ramses writes, knowing that Nefret has to have read it as some point (most likely with his knowledge) - I want to both laugh and cry. I am not sure spouses (what? It's been forshadowed since he first laid eyes on her. And I read the reviews for later books.) should read the teenaged angsting of their S.O., especially when they are angsting about said spouse.

Oh! And those letters from Nefret to 'dearest'? I'm betting on Lia.
