    I really enjoyed The Last Queen of Sheba. I was surprised that it was told from the perspective of her uncle and therefore at least half of the book does not speak of the titular Queen at all.

    For me, the history presented in the book was much more compelling than the Queen's story. There is an ancient tradition of stories about the Queen of Sheba in many African and Arabian myths. It was these stories which were much more interesting to me.

    As for the novel itself, it was well-crafted and kept my interest. I only wish there had been more about the queen or that the novel's title was a bit more clear that the scope of the book would go much further beyond this famous Queen.
