Golden Goblet to a friend because it is a action packed novel. The book is a bit uninteresting in the beginning, but will gradually get more exiting as you climb towards the climax. There is an important moral in this story to never end what you enjoy doing most. Ranofer is tested when having to change jobs from his beloved gold shop. Never stop trying to get your way and eventually you will succeed. Introduction In the beginning of The Golden Goblet, Ranofer is working at the goldshop, making gold ingots and then returning to the street of the crooked dog to hand over his earned coppers to his evil half-brother, Gebu. Rising Action Ranofer gets an opportunity to show Rekh that he is an excellent gold smith when he makes gold leaves. He succeeds in making the leaves. He realizes that Gebu and Ibni are stealing gold from Rekh's gold shop. He tells his new friends, Hequet and Ancient. Ranofer is transferred from working at the gold shop to being apprenticed at Gebu's stone cutting shop. Ranofer realizes that it is no use in trying to become a gold smith anymore, so he tries to learn the art of stone cutting. Climax Ranofer wakes up early to the sound of Gebu's footsteps, so he follows him through the streets and to the valley of the tombs. There he follows Gebu and Wenamon to the broken tree, into Queen Tuaa and King Huaa's tomb, and into the burial chamber itself.Gebu and Wenamon realize that someone is int the tomb with them when Ranofer makes a vase fall and break. Ranofer escapes the tomb and traps Gebu and Wenamon. Falling Action Ranofer is running through the sand toward the city when he spots Heqet and Ancient. Heqet and Ancient go to the secret enternce and guard it while Ranofer runs and gets help from Zau. Zau was not home but Ranofer was caught by a soldier and then taken by a short man named Qa-nefer of Abydos and taken to see the queen. Resolution The queen sent soldiers to the tomb and the thieves were caught. Ranofer was rewarded by being given a donkey and now being a pupil of Zau the goldsmith. Heqet and Ancient received each a ring set with greenstone amulets.
