User Summary: While examining an Egyptian mummy in an American-built pyramid-shaped skyscraper you stumble across an ancient diary which appears to have been written by the corpse... in English!
Demian's Thoughts: While being for the most part stupid and senseless, this book has several redeeming features. First of all, while it includes many of the cliches common to gamebooks involving mummies, it twists them enough to be slightly unpredictable. Second, it uses the phrase Klaatu Barada Nikto, something a movie buff like myself can't help but appreciate. Finally, it has more illustration than usual, including a maze used in a slightly unconventional (but sadly ineffective) manner. Also worth noting is that the player has an older sibling in this story, something which happens fairly infrequently in gamebooks of this sort.
