Comments Seeing a Large Cat

    Finally the children are old enough to make their own contribution to the series. Ramses is 16 and he and David, who is around 18, have just finished a stay with their friend the sheik where they were celebrating making the journey into manhood. Neferet is 18 or 19 and she is determined to do everything that the guys are doing--including smoking, drinking and learning to ride a horse like them. This episode deals with the challanges of all three young adults to live in both worlds of british soc [...]

    If you're a gamer, you'll know what I mean when I explain that Ramses suddenly turns from a DNPC into a PC in this book. What's more, he's a PC with as many points as his parents, who have been accumulating XP for eight books.In particular, I admire how Ms. Peters has handled the transformation. The Manuscript H might be a slightly precious device but it offers a fairly seamless transition into another POV, a trick in a series so deeply dedicated to a first-person singular narrative. It also tak [...]

    Seeing a Large Cat marks a change in the narrative style of the Amelia Peabody series by Elizabeth Peters. Starting with this volume the mysteries balloon from two hundred fifty pages to almost five hundred pages. The main source of these extra pages is the "manuscript H" which is apparently written by Walter "Ramses" Emerson.Over the course of the second half of the series (where Ramses, Nefret and David are adults), the writing style of "manuscript H" improves as does the manner in which it is [...]

    "For the ancient Egyptians, to dream of a large cat meant good luck."Another very entertaining archeological adventure in Egypt with Emerson and Peabody, now (in 1903) accompanied by an entourage of lively teenagers. I've enjoyed all of these books, but I think this is one of my favorites so far.Until now the books have been written entirely in first person from Amelia Peabody's point of view, but this time the author includes a few scenes written in third person from Ramses' point of view, oste [...]

    C'est plus un 4,5 J'ai adoré tous les retrouver, la gouaille d'Emerson, le caractère de Peabody (et ses conseils matrimoniaux), Ramses (et sa moustache) J'ai toujours du mal avec Nefret.Toux de gloussements maximal!Je ne laisserai pas un an passer pour lire le tome 10

    This is my least favorite of the series so far, but that's based on a personal prejudice - I dislike anything to do with seances, and the entire plot of this book depends on them. I also don't like plots that require someone to be a total idiot, which Donald is. lol And then, to take a character who's been cheating good people and somehow make that OK doesn't work for me. So there are several strikes against this one.Still, seeing the three young people growing up and interacting was great fun. [...]

    This seems to be the book where Peters quits writing the series as farce and starts taking the characters more seriously. How you feel about that change will affect your fondness for this book and the following. I, personally, can't take the Emersons when they are meant to be read as legitimate characters. Especially Amelia, whose blindness to facts while insisting she sees everything, and tendency to boss everyone around in a truly embarrassing manner, just makes me cringe. I could just barely [...]

    Since summer of 2016, listening to the entire (and most excellent) "Amelia Peabody" series (this is #9) by Elizabeth Peters in audiobook form. Getting them from "interlibray loan" and also (when they can't be found from a library) downloading them from audible. I would reccommend the wonderul stories to any mystery lover -- but start from the beginning of this series to benefit fully from the character and plot developments as they occurred over the decades. [I found this a partcularly involving [...]

    I love this series and with Ramses now a teenager his contribution to the narrative has been introduced in the form of extracts from a manuscript that provides an account of his activities away from his parents, usually accompanied by Nefret and David. To think I really disliked Ramses when he first was first introduced. This was another very interesting mystery with some fascinating supporting characters. Sadly the death of one character - a beloved feline one off screen - did make me sad.

  • John Frankham

    An enjoyable, if not outstanding, ninth book in this series about the husband and wife archaeological team in early 20thC Egypt, who, as usual, spend most of their time solving the murder of .As usual, the interest lies as much in the narration and wit of Amelia Peabody and, separately, her son Ramses, and the family development, as in the mystery.A decent read.

  • Vivienne

    This has been my audiobook in the car for last 5+ weeks which is about my average length. Again I cannot fault the brilliant narration done by Rosenblat who just shines

  • Linniegayl

    This was my first audio re-read of this 9th entry in the Amelia Peabody mystery series. This book was just wonderful! The Emersons are back in Egypt and face a number of mysteries, some darker than others. Ramses, David, and Nefret are now teenagers, and with this book we're introduced to the first "Manuscript H," a portion of the book told from their perspective. I liked this much more on re-read (my first) than I did the first time I read it. The ending definitely hints at darkness to come, wi [...]

    It's winter 1903 and the Emerson Peabodys are back in Egypt for the season. Ramses, now 16, spent the summer with sheikh Mohammad and came back a man! His new adult looks attract the attention of a young American lady in need of protection from a villain who wants to harm her father. Emerson has received a mysterious warning not to enter tomb 20A in the Valley of the Kings but Amelia is as curious as ever. They find themselves embroiled in the most bizarre mystery of their careers when they disc [...]

    Originally published on my blog here in October 2001.Each of the now lengthy list of Amelia Peabody novels is a light, enjoyable mystery set against the background of late nineteenth century archaeology in Egypt, memorable for the opinionated proto-feminist narrator. By this point, her son Ramses, for long the focal point of much of the series' humour, has nearly grown up (at sixteen), and her "memoirs" are now supplemented by excerpts from a "manuscript" by him, which gives a very different vie [...]

  • Anne Hawn Smith

    This book begins with Ramses, David and Nefret more as young adults than mid teens which they really are. In Egypt, they mature early and in this book, they begin to take a more active role.The mystery centers around a mummified woman who turns out to be a contemporary corpse even though she is mummified. Emerson finds the body and the authorities don't seem to pay too much attention to it, leaving the mystery to them. There are 2 men who are possibly the murders and the reader is bounced betwee [...]

    I love this series a lot. It's utterly ridiculous and totally silly, but I honestly don't care. Because ultimately? It's a hell of a lot of fun. The mystery in this one is less fascinating than some, but it's the first time we get excerpts from Manuscript H (aka Ramses' narrative), and I've always adored seeing Amelia's slightly rose coloured glasses take on what the kids are doing when she's not around, and then getting Ramses' "And then we snuck out of the house and fucked shit up" version a c [...]

  • Andrea

    I've wanted to read one of the Amelia Peabody mysteries for quite a while, and when I found out that some of the audiobooks were read by Barbara Rosenblat (who is simply phenomenal in the recordings of the Mrs. Pollifax series), I decided to begin with audio. Rosenblat does indeed do a masterful job, creating distinct and engaging voices for each character.Unfortunately, I only made it one disc in. Sweet jesus - 73 minutes and it was nothing but descriptions of clothing and cats and "what I did [...]

  • Barbara ★

    I'm really loving this series. I've totally read it out of order. I've already read #10, 14, 17 and 18 which tells me what's going to happen between the characterseventually but now I'm going to reread #10 to get the particulars of how they come together and when. I can't wait I just love Ramses' character.Of course this was another convoluted mystery with too many things going on, too many people involved in various mysteries, and the whole gang going in different directions trying to solve one [...]

  • Anna

    Instead of listening to the series in order, I skipped ahead a bit to this one, where Ramses is 16 and Nefret is part of the family. In order to accommodate the teenagers' point of view a new manuscript has been discovered which gives us information on their goings on that Amelia doesn't know about, and this is interwoven with her journal entries. It opens up the world (and I do dearly love the trio of Ramses, Nefret & David) but it does mean that things are less unified than before, where p [...]

    Emerson and Amelia are back in Egypt. The 'children' have grown up. They now teenagersry mature teenagers. Ramses and Nefret are now joined by David, an Egyptian boy they rescued from a life of crime in the last book. He is the Grandson of Abdullah, their Egyptian foreman. Several characters from other books in the series are part of the cast. The mystery is complicated, but not too complicated for Peabody and crew. We got a dose of Egyptology, but not too heavy that it distracted from the story [...]

  • Lori

    Doug and I listed to this book on CD. My favorite narrator for this audio books is Barbara Rosenblat. She does a perfect job of Emerson and Amelia, and whenever I read the Amelia Peabody books, it is her interpretation of their voices that I hear in my head.SPOILER BELOW ****************************Love this story! Ramses comes into his own and finally saves the day on his own. His romance with Nefret is put out into the open and all my favorite aspects of an Amelia Peabody mystery are included. [...]

  • Caroline

    Another entertaining Amelia Peabody Mystery, and luckily I didn't lose too much by accidentally skipping the previous two in the series and jumping straight into this.The most entertaining part of this novel was Ramses as an adult for me, he was a bit annoying as a child (still fun, but annoying), so it was nice to see him as a functioning adult and not some sassy-mounted child instead. I enjoyed the Manuscript H inserts that were told from his perspective, I felt they were a nice break from the [...]

  • Tara Carpenter

    We are starting to turn the corner in this series by Elizabethe Peters. Emerson and Peabody are getting a little older and more of the action falls to the younger crowd. I was happy to see a few narrative excerpts from a different point of view, although I still love Amelia's clear voice.I also love a cast of returning characters; getting to know the Emerson's cronies makes me happy. A few new relationships keep us guessing and of course, the nefarious villian is unmasked in the end. Through it [...]

  • BJ Rose

    Ramses is all grown up, and is sporting a mustache to prove it. Unfortunately, Mother Amelia is not impressed; he's growing up much too fast to suit her. But that's the extra appeal in this story for the reader - along with the addition of the excerpts from Manuscript H that add his perspective to these adventures.

  • Felicia

    A friend told me that Ramses becomes less incredibly annoying once he grows up. That seems to be the case. I enjoyed the book, although it wasn't life-changing. More or less continues in the same manner as previously, with the children being less annoying.

  • Kate

    Reread on audio, with Barbara Rosenblat narrating, as always a pleasure. These characters are so real to me after reading them for 25 years that as usual I had dreams about them after finishing the book. Yay!

  • Patty

    Oh, my! The children have grown up, and the change is most noticeable in Ramses. While the young Ramses was a delight and provided, unwittingly, much humor to the narrative, this mustachioed and very mature for 16 Ramses offers a much greater seriousness to the Emerson family dynamic. Fortunately, Amelia continues to make me smile.As always, the plot is about mummies, murder, and mysteryd of course, romance. As for characters, besides the Emersons and their band of Egyptians, we enjoy the compan [...]

  • Cynthia

    I enjoyed this although frankly I am sick of Nefret calling Ramses 'my boy' - what's up with that? But all the regular characters were there and the seance lady will make an interesting addition if she does indeed marry Cyrus. I figured this one out about halfway through but to be fair that may only have been because the murderer was so obnoxious I figured he was probably the guilty one and I don't think that's what Agatha Christie has in mind when she issues her challenge to the reader. (which [...]

  • Lauren

    Another wonderful addition to the Amelia Peabody books, and now that her and Prof. Emerson's children (Ramses, and their wards Nefret and David) are old enough to be more than just comic relief, it makes for a really enjoyable story. Not that earlier books weren't enjoyable, I'm just loving the evolution of the books as the characters age. I feel great affection for all of these characters and even though there are about 11 more books in the series, I am sad at the prospect of it coming to an en [...]
