Description

The 1895-96 season promises to be an exceptional one for Amelia Peabody, her dashing Egyptologist husband Emerson, and their wild and precocious eight-year-old son, Ramses. The much-coveted burial chamber of the Black Pyramid in Dahshur is theirs for the digging. But there is a great evil in the wind that roils the hot sands sweeping through the bustling streets and marketplaces of Cairo. The brazen moonlight abduction of Ramses - and an expedition subsequently cursed by misfortune and death - have alerted Amelia to the likely presence of her arch nemesis, the Master Criminal, notorious looter of the living and the dead. But it is far more than ill-gotten riches that motivate the evil genius this time around. For now the most valuable and elusive prize of all is nearly in his grasp: the meddling lady archaeologist who has sworn to deliver him to justice...Amelia Peabody!

Not the same narrator

Would you consider the audio edition of Lion in the Valley to be better than the print version?

This version has an american accented narrator. If you are listening to the whole series, make sure to get the other version.

Would you listen to another book narrated by Susan O'Malley?

Yes, just not in this series.

Any additional comments?

I only listened to a few minutes, then found the other version of The Lion in the Valley.

Good book but?

This book is quite good, funny too, but the choice of narrator is baffling. What were they thinking? The only redeeming quality of this production is the book itself. Unfortunately, it is rendered nearly un-listenable by the amateur reading.

A great book

I really enjoy the Amelia Peabody series and happen to enjoy Susan O'Malley's Narration the best. I think she does an awesome job. So, to each his/her own.

Susan O'Malley needs to do all the Amelia books!!

I honestly do not understand how or why anyone enjoys Rosenblat's performance of this book. She has no comedic timing, she reads soooo slowly, and her voices of the characters are all so annoying to me that I cannot stand to listen. I tired, I listened to the whole first half of Crocodile on the Sandbank narrated by Rosenblat, and had to give up. It was so incredibly terrible.

Susan O'Malley on the other hand is SO WONDERFUL!!! She absolutely IS Amelia Peabody, and everything she does with these books is just such fun. She has great comedic timing, and it just makes the whole thing so enjoyable and fun and light.

It is a tragedy that she only did the first 6 books. I would love to listen to the entire series, but I just CANNOT deal with Rosenblat. So instead I have listened to these first 6 books narrated by O'Malley about 4 times each now. And I'll probably listen to them again and again. Someone, PLEASE have Susan O'Malley narrate the rest of the books!!! PLEASE!!!!

Disappointed

Disappointed with Susan O'Malley 's performance. The voice of each character is almost the same.

Great writing

I am now starting book five and love this series. In some ways (i.e. her excellent command of language and humor) these novels remind me of P.G. Wodehouse. In reading the reviews I see there are some very strong opinions on which narrator is best. I have sampled both and I definitely prefer Susan O'Malley. Her narration seems just perfect for the dry wit and personality of Amelia Peabody. No matter which narrator you choose though, I'm sure you'll enjoy these novels.

I just love this story!

Amelia Peabody Emerson comes alive in Susan O'Malley's voice. This well written story captures your imagination of an Egypt of long ago- a must read!

Wonderful Series

I began listening to the Amelia Peabody Series a few months ago and found that they are very addictive! Since Audible does not offer all the books Elizabeth Peters has written in this series I found myself searching for them everywhere. Wonderful books, wonderful narration, can't wait until I have read them all! (I'm not sure why the previous reviewer states the narration is done with an American accent, all the books I have heard in this series are done in an English accent).

Watch out!

This is from a fun series of books, made unlistenable by bad narration. These books feature a British heroine, but are narrated in an American accent. Unforgivable.
