A new version of The Epic of Gilgamesh by Sebastian Lockwood. This is the story of Gilgamesh, King of Kings, who brought back knowledge from before the flood - who loved and lost his companion Enkidu and had to find out why we die.
The Epic of Gilgamesh was written on clay tablets over 4,000 years ago, in what is today Baghdad Iraq - the Biblical Garden of Eden between the Tigris and the Euphrates.
Having performed the story for years, Lockwood gives a passionate reading from a text that faithfully follows the original.

"Captain Kirk reads Gilgamesh?"
If you can imagine a British Shakespearean actor reading The Epic of Gilgamesh as Captain James T. Kirk might read it... then I highly recommend this audio book for you.
The story itself and its ancient history.
His read; an overly dramatic start and stop performance that honestly does sound like William Shatner when he portrayed Captain Kirk on Star Trek.
You can not cut a character from this story - this story is thousands of years old - adding text to the story it bad enough; but you should not cut any of the original text and certainly not cut a character.
Authors should do the writing and hire others to do the reading.
this was simply so repetitive that it got on my nerves, I listened to several chapters
"The story of Adam and eve descent from heaven"
it has the origin of Noah flood mythology , it is an amazing piece of human oral history that turned into one of the first written history pieces by one of the first human writings and the root of so many beliefs that are shared in the middle eastern religions
The book is a good introduction to the Sumerian epic, if a little dramatic in presentation.
