wonderful story telling!

After years of study into the Egyptian myths and countless stories and segments of stories, hearing these spoken with passion and joy brought many of the Gods and stories to life in ways I have longer for. It is approachable, fun, and full of wisdom for those that seek it.

Amazing

it's an amazing book. The stories are detailed, but not too long. The beginning is a bit slow, but interesting nevertheless. 5/5

Far below expectations

I initially purchased this book in order to know more about Egyptian mythology and the core values of their belief systems. This book falls short. While it provides several stories, it doesn't provide context for the tales or place the tales within the larger Egyptian context or society. The narration is a bit dry and lacks nuance.

Great Book and Fantastic Narration

I really liked this. Was playing Assassins Creed Origins and wanted to learn more about Egyptian Mythology. This has been awesome to listen too while playing the game.

A great beginner's book

A good source in starting off Egyptian Mythology studies. I love how this book offers several versions of the Egyptian creation mythos.

Hit and miss

It was sadly super difficult for me to absorb a lot of the information... this narrator just isn’t for me.
