Joan Grant is relatively unknown in these days and that's quite a shame. Her books, especially the first four (of which this one is third) are goldmines for those who are ready to digest the profound spiritual wisdom found in them. They are also fascinating historical adventures, the true, living history which is hard to find anywhere else.

I was determined to write this review when I saw "sizhao" telling how this book is "a mediocre fantasy at best". It's a pity that someone who, it seems, don't know nothing about Grant and her reasons for writing, is capable of dismissing her as nothing but a cheap fiction writer who claimed her books to be a historical fact. Well, Grant didn't do "poor research". Actually she didn't do any sort of research at all. EVERYTHING she wrote was from her own personal memory bank where she drew that knowledge in a trance state. Grant didn't know nothing about ancient Egypt or any of the periods she wrote about. Also, she would have never written anything, if there weren't a reason for it, i.e. she only wrote the lives where there was spiritual message to give to readers. She didn't write to entertain people. Grant actually was very reluctant writer who had to push herself to write. And when one thinks how much work there was to bring this knowledge "to the surface" alone, it's not any wonder.

"Sizhao" mentioned many things in this book which seems to be contradictory to historical "facts". Well, in that case it's interesting to note that in her own time her books were praised by their historical accuracy - after undergoing a great deal of careful scrutiny. Pretty well for someone who didn't do any research! I'm not aware of what Egyptologists nowadays know about that ancient culture, and I don't care.

Joan Grant had an amazing knack for incisive writing about her past lives. Many books of this genre are fuzzy, feel-good bromides that leave us doubtful.The authenticity of Grant's experience rings true in every sentence of this work.
It reads like an exciting adventure novel- yet the solidity and internal consistency of her main characters are astounding- and the spiritual gems glistening throughout the narrative are there for anyone to share. The prose is crisp, measured, and not padded and brings the culture and perspective of ancient Egypt directly into the heart and mind of the reader.
I am glad than writer Harold Klemp (Autobiography of a Modern Prophet) recommended this author to me.

If you got to this page, please, please DO BUY Joan Grant's "Eyes of Horus". It is a wonderfully written novel (Which is suppossed to be a real life she remembers), it is wonderfully written, and the amount of details of everyday life makes it amazing to read. You will feel you are in old Egipt, seeing everything with your own eyes. The way she writes makes you even understand other ways of thinking than our own, because of what her characters say, the comparisons they make... Believe me! I am an hypercritical person and there is nothing phony in this book! Please buy it, you will not regret it!

The wonderful and exotic mysteries of Egypt continue to fascinate us. Even with the recent "Arab Spring" uprisings, we all wondered what would happen to the pyramids. Egypt seems to be the hub of the exotic, strange and surreal, and it is ancient Egypt that we travel to in Joan Grant's wonderful novel.

If you, like I, have ever visited Egypt you will recall the enormous amount of "information" written about this ancient civilization seems to be quite overwhelming. There are many scholars who disagree about the meaning of various symbols, not the least of which is the mysterious Sphinx. While we can ponder these things, sometimes a beautifully written novel, all based, no doubt on imagination, can bring the whole mystery alive...and that is exactly what Joan Grant does.

This novel was written back in the 30s and has an old-fashioned flavour, which I enjoyed enormously. Others may not. I found myself lost in the ancient times, walking along the banks of the Nile and seeing (in my mind) the wonderful landscape in all its glory.

So if you enjoy the romantic imagery of ancient times, you will thoroughly enjoy this novel!!

I found this to be a an entertaining historical novel. Characters are entertaining and believable. She takes a few liberties with history like making the Mace the major hand to hand weapon when it was the Ax, She also makes the end of the 11th dynasty take about a year from what appears to be Mentuhotep II to Amenemhet the first 12 dynasty founder. I also have never heard that Set was a major religious cult under him. Another historical change is that it was the 12 dynasty that moved the Capital to the Nome on the border between Upper and Lower Egypt while the 11th stayed in Thebes.

Those quibbles aside and probably only important to a history specialist the book remains fine entertainment with believable Ancient Egypt Characters that stay in reasonable 20th century BC behavioral type.

Glad I bought it

Always brilliant, Ms. Grant transports the reader to a time before time. Her works are difficult to put down...you ask your self...How does this lady write with such prose and have such knowledge that seems to pour out endlessly from the well of time. I have collected all of her books, hoping I will have a chance to share them with others.
