From what I understand Budge's books are not entirely accurate due to bad translations. They are also influenced by Victorian morality. And lastly, he smuggled papyri by cutting them up to hide them. So these were a few points that made his work not as reliable.

Most of what makes me pass his works by is the Victorian cultural influences. For me it's more than morals. There are attempts to say that the Egyptians thought and felt as Victorian society did about many different things or that they were primitive and their culture was flawed.

Personally I have difficulty with most of the things I have read from that time. I cannot forget things like it being popular at the time to take mummies home, take them out of their wrappings, and eat them for some health advantage.

I do not find Budge respectful of the culture.
