This is the best book I've ever read.
It is the history of an Egyptian doctor in pharaonic times, since its childhood to his old years. As he wants to forget a woman, he travels around the then known world to places like Syria, Babylonia, the Hitite Empire, Crete and others places and has a lot of adventures. But deep in his heart he feels lonely. He returns to Egypt just in time to be witness of the changes brought there by Akhenaton as he tries to change the god Amon for a new one, Aton in the first monotheist religion the world knew.
This book is very well written and documented, with a history that may have happen in reality.
