    Nefertiti Michelle MoranWhen the Crown Prince of Egypt needs a wife the beautiful charismatic ambitious and connected Nefertiti is his mother's first choice She uickly becomes accustomed to the opulence of her new life As ueen of the world's first great empire at the height of its power all her dreams are realised Beguiling and wilful Nefertiti is soon as powerful as the Pharaoh himself But when her husband breaks with a thousand years of tradition defying the priests and the military it will take all Nefertiti's wiles to keep the nation from being torn apartWatching from the shadows her sister Mutny detests the back stabbing nature of palace life and as she dreams of a simple life in the countryside she records her sister's transformation from teenage girl to living goddessBut Nefertiti's star uality can only take her so far and when she's prepared to sacrifice her sister to strengthen her power the two women become locked in a feud which only death can breakعنوانها نفرتی تی ملکه ابدی؛ نفرتی تی ناکامیهای ملکه بلند پرواز؛ تاریخ نخستین خوانش ماه فوریه سال 2008 میلادیعنوان نفرتی تی ملکه ابدی؛ نویسنده نویسنده میشل موران؛ مترجم شهکام جولایی؛ تهران، جویا، 1387؛ در 352 ص؛ چاپ دوم 1388؛ شابک 9789642895052؛ موضوع داستان ملکه مصر از نویسندگان امریکایی سده 21 معنوان نفرتی تی ناکامیهای ملکه بلند پرواز؛ نویسنده نویسنده میشل موران؛ مترجم هادی عادلپور؛ تهران، کوشش، 1389؛ در 580 ص؛ شابک 9789642806225؛ عنوان ملکه نفر تی تی؛ نویسنده میشل موران؛ مترجم بهاره پاریاب، تهران، جمهوری، 1391، در 568 ص؛ نِفِرتیتی، یا نِفرتی‌ تی همسر بزرگ سلطنتی همسر اصلی فرعون مصر، «آخناتون» بود او و همسرش به خاطر یکتاپرستی، و تغییر دین، در تاریخ فراعنه پرآوازه هستند «نِفِرتیتی» همچنین در تاریخ مصر، به خاطر گردن کشیده و زیبایش مشهور است «نفرتیتی» در طول حیات خود، شش دختر به دنیا آوردند ا شربیانی

    Diana Gabaldon tagged this debut novel 'Compulsively readable' and she's not far off the mark I'm sure I won't be the first blogger to draw this comparison but this book was like The Other Boleyn Girl Egyptian style and for three main reasonsFirstly thematically For as much as this was a novel of sisters it was a novel of rivals Moran demonstrated unflinchingly the horrible acts women are capable of commiting to gain power over one another through Nefertiti and her dealings with Kiya the Second Wife and her sister Mutny However Mutny is unable to abandon her sister even as the throne of Egypt is crashing down around her Through the relationship of the siblings Moran shows that blood ties are stronger than the wounds we inflict on one another These women are bound to each other ultimately not by their rivalry but by their love It was this central idea that for me echoed Mary and Anne BoelynSecondly this book has been written with a conviction that can be rare in historicals of famous figures Apart from Philippa Gregory I haven't read another author who writes such vivid characters based on real people After reading the author's notes I was impressed at how much research Moran did so she could confidently draw her own conclusions on the character of Nefertiti and write a novel firmly grounded in historical fact While she concedes that some Egyptologists may disagree with her interpretations she hasn't allowed this to deter from the characters she's created To me this is brave storytelling Thirdly it is written in first person through the eyes of the overlooked sister As a reader I think that was a smart move Nefertiti while fascinating wasn't exactly likeable Mutny however was completely relatable and I think had this been written through Nefertiti's eyes readers would've had no one to have sympathy forSpeaking of sympathy as I often do when I'm finished a historical I Googled the facts as soon as I was done I must admit I'm disappointed to know what came of Mutny after the pages of this book finished I really liked her and I had hoped the Throne of Horus wouldn't come for herIf like me Ancient Egypt has always called to you then let it sweep you away into this book I don't think you'll be disappointed A very strong debut novel

    Remind me next time I'm looking for a new book NOT to buy one that is advertised on perezhiltoncom I should have known what I'd be getting myself into This was totally a summer beach read although next time I will wait for paperback too heavy I felt like it was just ALL dialogue ALL the time the author never went into too much detail in her description of places people etc this reminds me of my high school English teachers constantly telling us to show not tell in our writing Overall my opinion of it while reading it was meh I was happy to pick it up when I had free time to read but I wasn't drawn to it by any meansAlso the pharaoh was a total douchebag to the point where his douchebaggery seemed way too over the top Nefertiti was pretty obnoxious as well and in the same unrealistic overacted way Now that I think about it MOST of the characters were not likeable or even remotely three dimensional to me This just made the book feel schlocky and dumb

    This book was rather disappointingThe story of Nefertiti and Akhenaton two of Ancient Egypt's most emblematic leaders was always one of my favorites Perhaps because of this I had very high expectations for this book and in the end they weren't metAccording to several summaries I've read about this book Nefertiti tells the story of the Royal or First Wife of Pharaoh Akhenaton and it's also somewhat biographic I was always a little dubius about the biographic nature of the book as I don't see how the author could have amassed so much information about Nefertiti It's impossible to write a fair biography of ancient peopleStill even prepared for a work of fiction and little else I was disappointed Nefertiti has a lot of historical inaccuracies and even some false information about the society of Ancient Egypt Sometimes I even though I was reading about Medieval EuropeAnother thing that annoyed me were the characters Moran portrays Akhenaton as a violent insecure and ultimately dumb man It is clear the author comdemns the Pharaoh's religious vision; her view on the matter shouldn't have been perceptible in a work of fiction such as thisNefertiti too is little than a spoiled brat throughout most of the book I have a hard time believing that any ruler could or would be allowed to behave in such a mannerIt is clear that the author lacks the compreension about the society of Ancient Egypt because she managed to make it seem like another time period altogether even after doing research As such this book is to be taken lightly; it's hardly an historical novel

    I am a great fan of well done historical fiction Gabaldon Gulland and Koen all come instantly to mind but this certainly doesn't come close to any of them In fact I never got beyond the first 50 or 60 pages I've had a lifelong love affair with ancient Egypt especially the Armana period and I've never seen it depicted uite like this Amunhotep Ahknaten was depicted as a headstrong foolish kidbad enough but where oh where did she come up with her idea of Nefertiti's character? Vain venal power hungry obnoxious would these 2 people actually usher in not only the first known monotheistic religion in the world but also oversee the flowering of an artistic ethos that was radical in it's depiction of the everyday firmly rooted in the natural world and so startlingly lifelike that it's as fresh and modern today as it was four thousand years ago? I think notSo well researched or not the author gets no kudos from me

    This is the first book I have read by Michelle Moran I knew very little about ueen Nefertiti before reading this book I have learned a wealth of information from it Michelle has written a very interesting portrayal of Nefertiti It is told in the voice of Mutnodjmet her sister It is the story of sisters and family obligationsThis tale begins when Tutmosis the crown prince is lying in his death bed and his brother Akhenaten is the only witness to his death There is much speculation and mystery about thisNefertiti is 15 years of age and her sister is 13 Nefertiti is chosen to become the Pharaoh’s Chief wife as he is already married to Princess Kira who is pregnant with his child How will this all turn out?We learn about Nefertiti’s life and powerful struggles and aspirations in this wonderful novelIt is very will written and historically researched even though little is known of this era Michelle Moran explains at the end which facts are true and which events she has stretched her imaginationI think anyone who likes historical fiction will like this book

    “You can't change the desert You can only take the fastest course through it Wishing it's an oasis won't make it so” ― Michelle Moran NefertitiThis is the first book I have ever read about Nefertiti It was a great readIt takes the reader through Nefertiti's whole lifeI did not know much about before reading this book It was particularly wonderful at setting the mood and taking us inside her world I have read other books by this author and she is great at Historical Fiction But I particularly enjoyed this one I have always had an interest in Cleopatra but knew very little about Nefertiti I learned so muchFor me when reading any work of historical fiction I need to feel like I'm there Atmosphere is as important as good writing Michelle Moran does both I breezed through this book and really enjoyed itThere is alot of tragedy but that I did know going in It is also told through the eyes of Nefertiti's sister which some readers did not like but which I thought was fineI would give this 45 stars This is a compelling work of Historical Fiction written extremely well and I very much enjoyed it

  9. Asha says:

    This particular historical fiction book reminded me a lot of what occurred in the lives of sisters Anne and Mary Boleyn in Philippa Gregory's book The Other Boleyn Girl except with an Egyptian twist It's easy to picture 1351 BC from Moran's vivid descriptions and use of various Egyptian words This is Moran's version of Nefertiti's tale told through the eyes of her younger sister Mutnodjmet For the most part everything that occurs regarding Nefertiti is assumed She may have been crowned Pharaoh she may not have been She may have died of plague she may have been murdered I wish there was concrete information about her but Moran did an excellent job taking the knowledge we do have and spinning a captivating tale out of it I may just pick up another of her historical fiction books because for my part I'm always interested in how historical figures lived rather than in what they did

  10. Melanie says:

    Three stars for me but only because of the second half of the book I knew nothing of ueen Nefertiti prior to reading this Her rise to power in Egypt is uite interesting Along with her husband Pharaoh Akhenaten they created religious upheaval in Egypt by worshiping the god Aten It would be really interesting to read some non fiction regarding her The parts of the story dealing with Nefertiti's sister Mutnodjmet I really enjoyed This book leans a bit chick lit but I didn't mind too much
