Jodi Picoult

I’m Jim McKeown, welcome to Likely Stories, a weekly review of fiction, non-fiction, and poetry.

When I was in about seventh grade, I came upon a book which aroused my interest in Egyptology.  The book was Gods, Graves, and Scholars.  I read at least the Egyptian part of that book numerous times a year.  I have many shelves stuffed with my collection of books on ancient Egypt.  Then, my wife suggested I might like to read a novel by Jodi Picoult, The Book of Two Ways.  My interest in Egypt exploded anew.
