Point of View

The Egypt Game is told in a straightforward, third person point of view. There isn't one person who takes center stage and from whom readers watch the story unravel. Rather, the cast of The Egypt Game is an ensemble that fits together quite nicely.

The third person point of view has readers peering over the fence into the land of Egypt to watch the game being played. While no one character plays the narrator in this story, readers still get an intimate sense of who the characters are. For instance, readers will feel April's fear intensely when she is attacked.
