Hard to navigate the book.

The stories that are told are good, for me who is totally new to mythologies it's helpful to have so many introductions to different mythologies.

With that said, the book would be so much better if there was an index for all chapters, now they are just numbered.
It's not smooth at all if you want to skip something or revise

Table of Contents

This is the type of "information" that requires a table of contents which would have been so easy to add in place of chapter 1, 2, 3...Also, the male narrator sounds like he's 'reading' when he should be 'telling' a story

A good introduction

This book gives a great start to many of the world's mythologies.
It is well read by the two narrators.
If one just wants to know the bare bones of a cultures origin, this is a pretty good start.

i'm not even through the first section and...

Correct me if I'm wrong classical scholars, but Persephone was the daughter of Zeus and Demeter, not Hera. That was a part of the whole spring time thing? Hera is NOT the goddess of Fertility, marriage yes, fertility no.
This text is not accurate. I'm only on the second chapter of the first section and I've already said, 'Um, what?' 10 times. They refer to Leda (of the swan incident) as one of Zeus' "wives".
Do not pay money for this book. I want mine back and I want this book removed from my library. Thank goodness it starts with greek mythology which I actually know fairly well, if I had started with Japanese or Indian mythology I would have had no idea.

Good listen

I enjoyed most of this audiobook but did find the reading of the Japanese and Chinese sections hard to listen to. But totally worth the purchase.

Informative, repetitive, boring...

Great for information, but sounds like your listening to a power point or a textbook. I wanted to learn more mythology after getting Neil Gaiman book Norse Mythology. Hoping the book just told stories like that to learn about the gods was asking to much. This was a god by god layout of who what where when why in bullet point form. The narrator got many pronunciations wrong and each new god started with a story about the god before that we just got the same story about. Very redundant. I returned book... if any suggestions on a book about mythology to replace please comment

So boring!

This is terribly written and horribly narrated. This is more of an informative course on mythology. Not stories of mythology. I wish I had not bought this.
