Jim Weiss is not only an exceptional narrator, he's a gifted writer, as well. Indeed, in this recording of stories read by him, he explores the myths and wisdom of ages past with drama and style. EGYPTIAN TREASURES mixes history and fiction as he introduces the world's first great civilization, its heroes and its gods. Weiss also spins the marvelous true tale of the discovery of the mummy of Ramses II in the nineteenth century. Weiss uses clear language without dumbing down the grand ideas. Accents and unique voices aren't his strong point, and a few of his choices are odd or cloying, but these are few. Mostly the reader is coaxed into the story by Weiss's own endearingly smooth delivery. D.B. © AudioFile 2000, Portland, Maine [Published: OCT/NOV 00]
