Author Biography

Norman Weeks received his degree in history, with special interest in the cultures surrounding the Mediterranean.

One of the most fabulous travel destinations on earth has always been Egypt. In former centuries, a trip to Egypt was adventure travel, but in our time it has become group tourism.

What would a group tour of Egypt be like? Two Weeks in Eternal Egypt is the narrative of a modern Grand Tour of the country: Setting off from Cairo, proceeding to the Pyramids and Sphinx, Aswan and Abu Simbel, a cruise of the Nile down to Thebes and Luxor, the Valley of the Kings, and on to the Red Sea and up to Alexandria on the Mediterranean. The almost-all of Egypt, presented with enough historical background and cultural context to make sense of the sights.

The tour also features extensive social interactions, both with members of the group and with the locals.

A travel guide, geography, history, and sociology, Two Weeks in Eternal Egypt is presented in the form of light literary entertainment.

This is the experience of Egypt, fabulous still.

Reviewed by Mamta Madhavan for Readers' Favorite

Two Weeks In Eternal Egypt by Norman Weeks takes readers on a fascinating trip across Egypt to experience the sights, sounds, and history of a country that offers a lot to tourists. Starting from Cairo, the journey takes them to the Pyramids and the Sphinx, Citadel of Saladin, Coptic Cairo, Aswan, Abu Simbel, a Nile Cruise, a Felucca ride, Luxor, and from there on to the Red Sea, Alexandria, and the Mediterranean. Experiencing Egypt, its history, culture, places of interest, people, and shopping is wonderful as readers see the country through the eyes of the author. Cruising along the Nile, readers see the raw beauty of the country with its stretches of uncultivated shoreline, reed-filled marshes, and its unique geography.

Two Weeks In Eternal Egypt by Norman Weeks is for all those readers who love travel and will encourage them to visit Egypt to experience the place. For all those who love the beach and the sea, the Red Sea coast has a lot to offer with resorts, private clubs, and vacation condominiums. Reading this book took me down memory lane when I had visited Egypt and traveled across the country for two weeks. The sheer magnitude of the colossal stone structures is the first thing that is noticeable while visiting many places in Egypt. There is a lot to see in Egypt and this book shows the fabulous mixture of nature and culture in an engaging way and will help readers understand how traveling to Egypt will be a trip of a lifetime.
