I'm done with The Hippopotamus Pool, and it was very good, though not as good as other books in the series, so it gets a B+.

I don't even need to mention what I enjoyed about this, because it was the same as always, the Emersons, the archeology, the Egyptian setting, yadda, yadda, yadda. All that was great. With the added bonus of having the archeological part of this even more fascinating this time and having David introduced as a character.

Problems? A couple. Ramses wasn't such an important character here as in other books. The suspense part was a bit too convoluted, and Ricetti wasn't a very good villain. Otherwise, enjoyable, re-readable book.
