Anne Rice, best selling author of The Vampire Chronicles, delves into the mysterious legend of the mummy in this original and poetic tale of romance and horror.It begins in the early 1900s when archaeologist Lawrence Stratford discovers a perfectly preserved mummy in a tomb in Cairo. Little does he know that the mummy, one Ramses the Great, a.k.a. Ramses the Damned, has consumed an extraordinary potion that makes him immortal; only the powerful rays of the sun are needed to bring him to life. Transported to London, the mummy dispenses with his wrap and takes on a human guise. As Reginald Ramsey, he immediately captures the heart of Stratford's daughter, Julie, who is privy to his unnatural secret but can't resist his stunning good looks. All goes well until Reginald comes across Cleopatra, his long-lost love, under glass in a museum. Unable to bear the sight of this once-glorious Queen now on gruesome display, he decides to bring her back to life...a decision he will live - forever - to regret.The ancient world collides with the modern one in Anne Rice's richly erotic yet sentimental love story that resonates with the macabre.For a full selection of Anne Rice programs available at and to hear the author answering fan mail, visit the Anne Rice store.

schönes buch aber schwer zu höhren

Was mochten Sie nicht am Vortrag von Michael York?

Die geschichte und das buch an sich sind sehr schön, ich besitze es auch als gebundene fassung und wollte es nun nebenbei hören.
Leider ist mir nach wenigen Minuten durch die schlechte qualität und unpassenede Hintergrundmusik (was hat hintergrundmusik in nem Hörbuch zu tun?) sehr schnell die lust vergangen. Kopfschmerzen gab es ebenfalls gratis dazu.
Schade eigendlich, hatte mich wirklich darauf gefreut
