RAMSES The Battle of Kadesh

by | Read by Stephen Thorne

Historical Fiction • 11.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1996

Christian Jacq takes his listeners to a period of turbulence in Egypt and the Levant, mixing time periods, historical figures with fictional characters, and palace intrigue with political infidelity. Stephen Thorne takes this fictional work and applies British accents to the Egyptians and Mediterranean accents to the others. While the flow of simplistic dialogue is unerring and enjoyable to the layman, Jacq’s introduction of Ramses, Moses, and Homer in the same time period is disconcerting to students of ancient history. Volume varies from side to side, along with some bleed-through and editing blips, distracting the listener from the plot. M.B.K. © AudioFile 2001, Portland, Maine [Published: APR/MAY 01]
