Egyptologist Amelia Peabody and family find themselves back in Egypt for their eighth archaeological adventure. Alexandra Thomas's personification of Peabody is brilliantly multidimensional and reveals her humor, creativity and maternal instincts, as well as her famous intelligence. Thomas's interpretation of the dark and wily villain, Peabody's pseudo-intellectual husband/partner, and the mysterious nanny establish her as a master of narrative diversity. Middle-Eastern dialects are effortless for Thomas and create an ominous and pervasive influence which colors the outward appearance of many of the main characters. Alternatively, her portrayal of Peabody's son and young female ward discloses her ability to identify and interpret the emotions of teenagers in the nineteenth century. Alexandra Thomas is a delightfully credible performer! B.L.W. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: JUN 97]
