The Egyptologist by Arthur Phillips

This is a difficult book to get through, but, like life of pi, is all about the ending. When I reached the end, I found myself searching through the rest of the book, looking for passages to prove what I suspected. The characters aren't necessarily 'likeable' but they are interesting, and encouraged me to continue through the book to see where they would end up. Not all the issues/ questions are answered, of course. The format of the book is also different, and the unreliability of the different narrators kept me interested page after page.

This was a great book! The characters are interesting and varied, full of issues but great together. It's a fairly quick read, but I definitely recommend it!
