Ramses Volume 3: The Battle of Kadesh

A review on the third volume of the bestselling series by Christian Jacq:

The character development is poor and I’m definitely disappointed with the level of historical accuracy and shallowness of all the well-known figures.  To me, it might be better to write a piece on Ramses from an unknown person’s point of view – character development can go as deep as the imagination, and the writing wouldn’t seem so lacking because what the character sees of Ramses would be based in what we find in museums and history books.  Instead, Jacq uses redundant phrases and paragraphs to describe the relationships between characters – much like Nicholas Sparks whom I despise.  But, it is an entertaining vacation read.
