    • A well-written alternative history of Egyptian past with a good plot, mystery and suspense.I can't say much so as not to give away the story but it is a clever mix of myth and reality, with unusual characters and sense of place.Worth reading.


    • OUR LADY OF THE ABSOLUTEBy Resa Nelson4 starsWhen fiction becomes fact.This is a most strange story and it flows along making sense for about half of the book, and then it takes a twist and the reader struggles trying to determine how to fit the two halves of the book together. It is a sci-fi type of story, a fantasy, where the first half of the book has you in ancient Egypt, with all of the gods, royalty, and idiosyncrasies of that civilization.

    • Our Lady of the Absolute by Resa Nelson is a different type of book to read. It tries to combine ancient Egyptian and modern society in a "today" setting.The book was well written but I found it hard to follow and identify with. I just could not get into the story. This book just didn't do it for me.I give it four stars based on writing style, but I did not like the storyline.


    • Mind-Blowing. Really fascinating. Resa creates the most vivid worlds with really identifiable characters, and then puts those characters through the roughest, life-changing experiences, leaving the reader nearly dumbfounded, but it is passionate, "meaty" reading that you can just get sucked into.


    • AmazingWhen I first started this book I was not sure where it was going. I almost didn't finish it. I am so glad I did. This one of the most amazing books I have ever read. It is a must read.


    • Not my interestSome times I must be misreading the write up describing the novel. I pick up one that is quite different than what I normally read
