Download Epub Format ↠´ The Akhenaten Adventure PDF by ✓ P.B. Kerr I read this book in. . . 2015, I think? I don't remember a lot about it except thinking, why tf did I read this. Don't take my word for it, as I'm clearly no expert on the book, but. . . . . . Just saying. I really struggled. The book, inspired clearly by Harry Potter if not Rick Riordan's Percy Jackson books, was ok. The two protagonists, a set of twins who discover that they are djinn with magical powers, felt cookie cutter and never really seemed to break out of the mold.
To make things worse, there were a fair number of xenophobic comments spread throughout the book, the French receiving a good number of shots (hygiene being the number one thing attacked) though Egyptians were not far behind.
Coming at the book with adult sensibilities, I was clearly more sensitive than my 10 year old daughter who just breezed by these blissfully unaware.
That said, the combination of fairly mediocre writing and nearbigotry (or to be generous just poorly honed humor) was tough to get past.

I will definately let my daughter read this book when she is older. I've seen some criticism's about the issue of smoking in this book. In the book, the reason why Djinn smoke is because they are made of fire and they like heat and smoke. But the character, Nimrod, clearly states in the book that smoking is fine for Djinn but terrible for humans.
"But isn't smoking bad for you?" Objected John.
"It's terribly bad for human beings, yes. But not at all bad for djinn. "
Personally, I don't worry that my daugher will read this and want to take up smoking.
Very likeable characters, adventure, humor and fun. Great book! read aloud with daughter; this book has strong main characters and a great mythology, along with excellent descriptions of the locales (New York, London, and Cairo). It is the first of a series, and we plan to dig into the next book very soon.
This story is mythological fantasy, with magic, but set in our modern day world. This element, along with what is clearly well thought out folkore of the djinn is excellent. I also appreciated references to other booksTales from the Arabian Nights and The Oxford Book of English Verse. The two main characters (twins) show e Have you read the Red Pyramid by Rick Riordan? It was like reading that but at the same time nothing fancy like that~ because i like this one better! I liked how it was written (I dunno, i really liked how UK writers write). It was like in the same boat as Red Pyramid, being Cairo and travelling in London and other parts of the world but not in a very hectic manner like Rick Riordan's throwing all information to you that you were sick of it and you cannot take it anymore.
This story was a fresh perspective from the source of magic of the magicians. . . made me remember Bartimaeus the whole lot because he is a Djiin too, and was trapped to Nathaniel's bidding. So here, siblings with a Djiin roots and on their puberty they have to acknowledge their powers as Dj I remember this book. It's been years since I read it, but I also remember that it was a thoughtful gift from a friend. She said she knew I loved book with talking animals, but couldn't find any so she hoped this was alright. To be honest, I always been fascinated by 1001 Arabian Nights so this was a nice little discovery since it involved two children learning that they were djinns. The fantasy world opened up and expanded upon the usual locations of fantasy middle grade novels. Therefore, I consider this more of a "four star" read than a "three star" one because I was not as in love with the plot as I would have liked but the setting meant everything to me. The same with the characters. The setting, the Two american children find out that they are actually Jinn (or Genie) and set off to London to help out their Uncle, er, Nimrod.
Not a bad book, slightly actionadventurish, but spolied by stilted writing and a quite bizarre hatred for the French, which might be ment to be humerous, but instead comes off as quite xenophobic.
The former might be because the author tends to write for adults and was trying to write "down" for childrenthe latter, I have no explaination for, unless his EnglishScot hertiage gives him some sort odd long historical memory.
This book has a lot of xenophobia and fatphobia in it. It constantly throws down on anyone who is not ablebodied, thin, genderconforming, and white British/American. The main characters do black face to commit a crime because it was “suitable for carrying out a burglary. ”
I didn’t like any of the characters. I didn’t care for writing or pacing. I did not enjoy this reading experience much at all, and I sadly don’t recommend this. I found this an entertaining, quicktoread adventure book, and the central idea, that some people in the modern day world are djinns of the ancient legends whose task is to protect the world, is nice enough. But the plot solutions were too facile and convenient, and so it was not really as exciting and fun as it could have been. However, what bugged me the most was the attitudes the author showed, through the narrative and the attitudes of the characters, towards, well, pretty much anything that was not American white upperclass and thin. Such xenophobia, especially towards the French and the Arabs, such disdain of everyone and everything not fitting the right kind of bracket, be it fat people or Nimrod's onehanded servant or anyone. I really couldn't wait to be rid of the author's thought world (it annoyed me enough that I'm not sure I'd have finished
