Fictional Universe


If you could be part of any fictional universe, what would it be?

If I could leap into a fictional universe or world, I would like to be part of the Amelia Peabody Emerson series of books by Elizabeth Peters. These books are set in the late 19th and early 20th century, usually in Egypt since the main characters are Egyptologists. They are archaeologists involved in excavating ancient historic sites in Egypt and always stumble upon a crime while they are working. I would love to work alongside of them and learn more about archaeological methods and about ancient Egypt. These have interested me since I was about 10 years old and I would love to have the chance to learn firsthand about ancient and Egypt and archaeology.

I have read all of Ms. Peters’ books in this series and absolutely love them. They are my favorite books. Right now I am rereading the books in order and the early ones seem fresh again. I love that historical period as so many things were changing into a modern world (telephones, typewriters, electricity, automobiles, etc.) I would enjoy working at the ancient sites and helping with the excavation of tombs and temples and pyramids. I would even be a servant in the Emerson household so that I could learn about life from Amelia Peabody Emerson. This is the fictional universe into which I would like to step.

About mairedubhtx

I am a "youngish" grandmother of 15 year old twin granddaughter who has recently (is a year "recent"?) adopted Islam as my way of life, much to the consternation of my family. I love to read. I love to write. I am writing a book about my decision to revert, about my spiritual journey. I have another blog about stories from my youth, my parents, and grandparents. It's a blog so my OCD daughter will not be able to throw it out when I die. I suffer from depression and anxiety, for which I am treated, so my posts may be a bit dark at times. C'est la vie.

    Thank you for that entralling insight into discoveries of Egypt.
    Maybe you should follow your dream…you do not get another chance.
    In the meantime enjoy your re- read of your books
