Comments Dreamers

  • Cathy Campbell

    I loved this historical novel. According to the author the biblical account of the story of Joseph is not contradicted. And the pharaohs and queens mentioned in the book live in the annals of Egyptian history. The author says the two records of history intersect. This book is a page turner and the first book of a trilogy. The next book is Brothers.

    From the back cover: Though as naturally elegant as any queen, Tuya came as a teenaged slave to Potiphar's household, a personal gift from the mighty Pharaoh. Tall and slender, the young girl had eyes that shone like a stream of gold in the fading light, and her face was as perfectly chiseled as the statues in the finest temples. She knew nothing of her past, except that she had always been a slave.Another young slave came to Potiphar, purchased from traveling Midianites. Though stained with dus [...]

    **Update** The prior review holds true. This book survives round two of the purge from my personal collection.A review from my old blog (of the whole series) I have loved every Angela Hunt book I have ever read. Thus it was with great delight that I embarked on reading this series and another to be reviewed next. Both of these series were published years before I become introduced to Hunt and her writing. I definitely enjoy playing catch up because other than that I would have to wait for her ne [...]

    This book was so much better then I expected, even though it was nothing like I had expected. At the start, I thought I got had an idea where the book was heading. After a ton on twists and turns. I was let with an amazing story that really illustrates that God works all things together for good.I love the flawed yet good man they made Joseph.Simply because of what the story involves, I think this book would be best enjoyed by 18 and up.

  • Jenn

    I had read this book right after high school and remembered liking it, so I decided to read it again. Although a few of the author's metaphores are used multiple times ("tears jeweled her lashes"), the book has an intriguing storyline that makes it hard to put down. I enjoyed the insight into ancient Egyptian culture and ritual as well as the spin on the biblical story of Joseph.

  • Ruth

    I had my doubts when I picked up this book to read but this book was a real page-turner for me! I am so glad I had extra time to read this last couple of weeks because all I could think about was getting back to reading this. I have always loved the story of Joseph and this just had a real interesting twist to the story. I would definitely read this book again.

  • Barbara

    If you have trouble following stories in the Bible, read this series because even though the author has fictionalized events, the sequences and characters remain true to the original.

  • Rachel

    Rereading this series, as it is in my collection. I probably read this about 15 years ago. I really enjoyed it again. It is enjoyable to read a well-known Bible story from a different perspective.

  • Jessica

    Soap opera + ancient Egypt = totally entertained

  • Hannah

    While technically not contradicting the Biblical account of Joseph's life, and while it does paint a vivid picture of Egyptian culture, Dreamers is not in line with Biblical doctrine.Judging it by Philippians 4:8: it may be true (as far as Egyptian culture and human emotions); but it is not noble (check the morality*); it is not just (the real people did not do these things, nor is the book upright); it is not pure (filling the reader with feelings and images**); it is not lovely (all beauty is [...]

    I received this book by accident from a friend who thought she had borrowed it from me. Truthfully, it's not the kind of book I would have picked up on my own. Hmm, a potbioler, I thought. But once I got into it I was hooked. It certainly will not go down in annals as a classic, but it did affect me in a positive way.This is the first in a trilogy about Joseph from the book of Genesis. In a short interview at the end of the book, the author is careful to note that she did not contradict the Bibl [...]

    I first read this book about twenty years ago. It was a wake-up call for me that there was more to inspirational fiction than the typical: someone faced with adversity, in overcoming adversity they come to lean on God, fairly happily ever after ending. I know, that is what most books are (conflict, rising action, resolution and all that), but this book (and its sequels) gave me a deeper look into something I realized I was lacking. The Bible. I read the stories, understood the point of many of t [...]

  • Audrey

    To be honest I was disappointed int this book. If I had read it years ago I would have given it a higher rating I love most anything with Biblical/ancient history. But recently I have read research on Egyptian history and I consider this book historically inaccurate. Its as if the author took some well known characters from ancient Egypt and a famous character from the Bible (Joseph) and attempted to weave thier lives together. She placed the life of Joseph hundreds of years ahead of time and pl [...]

  • Melissa

    More of a romance than anything (and with some fairly sensual descriptions), though the story was interesting in other ways, and there were some good lessons about pride and such. I also didn't feel there was enough self-constraint on the part of Joseph, or enough focus on the true God. He was willing to marry a pagan in this fictional story, and we have nothing like that mentioned in the Biblical account. (Yes, Pharaoh gave Joesph an Egyptian wife, but it doesn't say whether he wanted to marry [...]

  • Swing

    I have read this book 11 times in the last 10 years. I continue to go back to it when I want something familiar and wonderfully written to read. Hunt is an amazing author, dragging you into the "how it could have been" life of the Biblical figure Joseph. Beautiful pictures of ancient Egypt contrasted through his life of slavery and rising to the second most prominant man in Egypt in his lifetime.

  • Kellylynn

    An interesting book, I did not realize until I started that it was a religious book. In the end that didn't affect my opinion. I thought the story was well written, the interaction between the characters was good. Of course there are some characters I did not like, but that was to be expected due to there behaviors not the writing.I rather liked reading about some of the Egyptian history, true or otherwise.

  • Shanda

    This is a fictional tale of Joseph in Egypt and his rise to power. A very good story about his life, loves, struggles, pridefulness, and his faith. Of course its just a story, but it definitely brings him to life. Seeing how he is a great, great, great,.andfather of us all it was a Great read!!

  • Sherri

    This is the second book of Angela Hunts that I have enjoyed reading. I found it to be very interesting because of the extensive research on ancient Egypt. The story was fascinating and I enjoyed all of the characters. It is a fictional account of the life of Joseph in Egypt and I found it to be a really good story.

  • Emily

    It was interesting how Hunt filled in the gaps of the Biblical story. It gave the story more human interest rather than just being a story that has become somewhat common place in our minds after hearing it so much.

  • Jatu

    Affair is coming all round Halah It's a story about Prophet Yusuf (?) and interesting enough to read it, an ancient plot to destruct somebody because of hatred, love and jealoussy. See how love can be so mean

  • Amy

    I've re-read this series a million times. I'm convinced that I passed many a Old Testament quiz that I wouldn't have otherwise. :) The story of Joseph with artistic liberty on the surrounding storya terrific read. I'd recommend it to anyone!

  • Grace

    I loved this book. I looked forward to getting in bed everynight and reading a few chapters it was so wonderfully written and as we know, in the Bible, the story of Joseph spans his lifetime but doesn't give all the details. This was a great way to imagine what went on behind the scenes.

  • Traci

    This was another book sale find and I've had mixed success with those. But this one was a hit. I can honestly say I've never read Biblical fiction (and I didn't know that's what it was until I read the author's note), but I enjoyed this book and the author's interpretation of the story.

  • Jennifer Johnson

    extremely well written by Ms Hunt. Takes the story of Joseph in Egypt while expanding more about the characters. Ms. Hunt embellises the story, yet still keeps the story tue to God Word. Beautiful ending

  • Tiana

    This is the first book in a trilogy - historical fiction about the life of Joseph. I enjoyed it so much because it made the story of Joseph, one of my favorite Old Testament stories, really come to life. I was able to better visualize the beautiful work of God in Joseph's life.

  • Eden

    Another very good book and retelling of the story of Joseph. With it being fiction I do not believe that all the events in this book were accurate to the original story and I wish the author had made it such. But other than that, it was very good.

  • Cynthia Kosasih

    I remember I bought this book from a secondhand book seller . reading it, I learned a lot about Egyptian myth, history, place, and culture :)

  • Marsha Sternstein

    A page turner. The author makes the characters come alive.

  • Tammy

    Historical fiction of the life of Joseph

  • Vicky

    fascinating book, helped bring to life the Word of God
