The Golden Goblet is awesomee!!!  Jan 14, 2009
I thought this book was really inspiring. It taught me to never give up, even if people are holding you down. There is always hope. Believe in yourself! :)

In the beginning it was kinda boring and slow, but once you got a little farther into it it starts getting exciting. :O Read it! :D
the golden goblet review by Diana Avetisyan  Nov 5, 2008
i think you should really read this first i wasnt really interested but when i got to read more,i couldnt stop reading. You might its boring at first but when you get to chapter 2,you wont put the book down.i love how the author uses figurative languge and uses so many discriptive words. i can almost create a picture in my mind. i enjoyed this book from start to finish.
A Kids Review  Aug 24, 2007
The Golden Goblet is about a boy, Ranofer, who is poor and has no food to eat. He worked at the goldsmith shop, but was not lucky enough to be an apprentice to Rekh the Goldsmith, because Gebu (Ranofer's half brother) thought that being a goldsmith had no skills. One day when Ranofer came home, Gebu told him that he has to work for the stonecutters. Ranofer was so mad he couldn't even say goodbye by to Rekh. This book takes you through different adventures with Ranofer. I liked this book because the characters in the book where described so well and the storytelling was described magnificently. I would recommend this book to people who enjoy mysteries and intense moments. They should also be aware that the book is a little slow to get into in the beginning, but once you start to see the plot develop you will not be able to put it down.
This Book is Great  Mar 14, 2007
I had to read this book for school. I am homeschooled. After I read the first chapter....I couldn't put it down. I couldn't stop reading it. Now, I have always found joy in reading but that matters not with this book. This went along with my history. (Acient Egypt) I will say nothing of the character nor the events, for it will destroy the joy in reading it yourself. This book is better...far better than words can describe. It is really good, take my word for it. Only satisfaction awaits you in this book.
This book is the worst book ever. I didn't know there could possibly be a book this bad. If you are required to read this book like me, i feel bad for you. Do NOT read this book for pleasure because it is not a pleasant book. It is painful to read. If you are STILL thinking of reading this bad book, DON'T READ IT!! take my advice.
Golden Goblet Exerpt  Apr 19, 2006
The Golden Goblet is about an Egyptian boy named Ranofer. After hid father, Thutra dies he has to live with his child-abusing half brother Gebu. Gebu always beat him up for no reason and feed Ranofer very little. Ranofer's dream was to be a Master Goldsmith, but Gebu messes it up when he makes Ranofer a Stonecutter. Soon Ranofer suspects Gebu is stealing. So, his friends, Heqet and the Ancient start spying on Gebu. But If you want to knows what happens then read Golden Goblet! If start getting bored between Chapter 1 through 2, then keep going because in Chapter 3 things start to get a little exciting. But if you are still bored then have fun burning the book.
KCS The Mystery  Nov 13, 2005
The Golden Goblet Viking Penguin Inc., 1986, pp.248, $6.99

"Followed to the valley?" Startled out of his nervousness, Ranofer turned to stare at him.
"Aye to the Valley, to the tomb itself. And into the tomb."
"Into the tomb! But-but who would dare-"
"One who loved his pharaoh and the gods of Egypt-he dared," the Ancient said simply.

Ranofer is a poor boy, dreaming of becoming a master goldsmith like his father, Thutra, but the only person keeping him away from his dream is Gebu, Ranofer's half-brother. As Rekh the goldsmith tells Ranofer that gold was missing, Ranofer becomes suspicious about his greedy half-brother. While working at the goldsmiths' shop, he becomes friends with a boy named Heqet, who is an apprentice to Rekh. Ranofer also becomes friends with a wise old man named the Ancient, who is a papyrus cutter at the riverbanks.
One day, Ranofer goes into Gebu's room to look for anything suspicious about the missing gold. Once Ranofer opened the box, he found a beautiful golden goblet wrapped in shentis (old Egyptian clothing). Now Ranofer and his friends need to prove that Gebu was the thief. Will Ranofer and his friends prove to everyone that Gebu is the thief? To find out if he suceeds or not, read this exciting, adventerous book.
The Golden Goblet has many problems, but the main problem is that Ranofer wants to be free from his half-brother, Gebu, and accomplish his dream to become a master goldsmith. But the only way to be free from Gebu, is if Ranofer and his friends proves Gebu guilty for stealing the gold.
Our group thought this book was overall great, but, some places were a little confusing. Our group liked the morals from the book. One of the morals were to dream big and even though things or people are holding you down, never give up. We recommend this book to everyone who likes historical fiction with a good moral.
