Marty's grandfather, Reginald, is a man who has been obsessed for years with finding the tomb of King Kutkara. Although he's never fully realized that there's something fueling his obsession--something from beyond the grave, something truly evil--it's finally driven him insane. A very sick man, Marty's family moves in with the ailing Reginald; as a result, some very strange things start happening. Because, you see, when Reginald finally did find Kutkara's final resting place, a curse was let loose, not only upon Reginald, but upon his entire family.
What comes as a result of this curse are strange happenings, indeed. Not only is Marty starting a new school, with the typical bully attempting to make his life miserable, but even his grandfather's nurse, Margerete, is something that could be from beyond the grave herself. Being mean and nasty is one thing, and even the overt threats she makes in Marty's presence is another, but the woman actually seems to have things--living, breathing things--growing inside her body.Read more ›
I found "The Curse of the Mummy's Tomb" compelling and enthralling, the mystery deepening and thickening with each chapter; some characters definitely gave off strange vibes almost from the beginning, but it was hard to tell why exactly, and so the plot unfolded itself without being given away too soon, with a definite feeling of horror slowly building up. Marty's nightmares, while of the graphic type, remain dreams, and so they clash all the more with the apparently normal, tranquil side of the average New England town where the story takes place. We are aware that something terrible is going to take place, but we definitely don't know when nor where exactly.
The main characters seemed well-rounded to me. Margo and her no-nonsense attitude. Simon who always made me smile with his eats-everything-in-sight attitude. Marty who tries to do his best to face whatever is about to befall him, in spite of being burdened with his own suffering. Dani's courage. Margarete's true face. Although I wouldn't say I connected well with all of them, I usually liked them.Read more ›
At times, be warned, this can get a little bit gross, if you are good at visualizing what happens in a book. Fans of the Young Indiana Jones or the Mummy series will stand a good chance of liking this, especially the latter.
