It is what it says

I found it very dry, the stories themselves were ok but the delivery could use some work. I'm not going to listen to it ever again.

Exactly as described

Content is exactly as described. The reader did an excellent job delivering the stories and the author added a lot of flair. I particularly loved the fight scene between Horus and Set.

Love the Subject Matter

Egyptian myths are fascinating and sometimes absurd. Who isn't entertained by tales of a god who sends his eyeball on a mission to find someone, countless pairings of incestuous divine lovers, and a whole pantheon of dieties with animal heads?

While I love the material, these are delivered in a way that's a bit more dry than you might expect. The stories are told as factually as possible. Factual is good, buy there’s no pizazz in the delivery here. I have no trouble falling asleep to this.
