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.

Be cautious

If you are looking for an english translation of all mythologies included in this title then do not get this book. The author takes lots or liberties to ad "color" to the narrative and it is quite cheesy. Because of the added tag lines are so numerous it became difficult to distinguish the true narrative of the myths from newly imagined details added by the author. overall it was entertaining at times but also made me cringe at the corny inserts.

Wonderfully enlightening

I enjoyed the stories in the mega collection, the main narrator was fun to listen to. The one person who read the Norse stories though was a bit dry, but I still enjoyed listening. Learned lots about the other cultures and beliefs.
