Faraon - Bolesław Prus A book from my childhood (not exactly for a child), I didn't care back there that it's a "brick". I've read it more than once, but not sure how many times, I've chose "2" because it's "not just once". ;)

It's still one of my favourites to this day, and not (just) because of priestess Kama.

This book, written in the end of 19th century, still remains valid. If you like historical and/or political novels, this one is definitely for you.

More detailed review after I read it again. ;)
