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.

Great Book to Start learning Egyptian Myths

Great book full of many wonderful stories told by a narrator who brings a spark of joy to the readings. It’s very easy to read ancient history books in the same dull monotone voice. But Mr. Hunt really helps bring the old stories to life.
Would recommend reading this book if your new to Egyptian Mythology, or if you would like a nice refresher course.

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.

The First, The Foundation to all others...

Every Myth, every GOD and GODDESS in each culture came from Africa...stolen from Africa. I have 3 Egytain history books in my personal library that I picked up when in college...over 20 years ago and read each once for a paper. The knowledge learned then set in and have carried with me well without realizing. Christianity never sat well with me as most organized religion hasn't. I will continue to follow where my soul and spirit leads me. Thank you Nut. Thank you Ra and Amun Ra. Thank you Isis. Thank you Maat.

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.

Moving swiftly along...!

Ears bleeding after 3rd or 4th chapter...no depth, dimension and matter of fact skip along "lets get this done". Americanised enough said! Returned, unfortunately. Not for me although gave the story (from previous readings) a 5*

Thoroughly entertaining and informing

I enjoyed this book immensely, especially the genesis of the gods. I was also entertained by a single narrator reading all the parts, that really works well.

Must Read

No I was fully invested by this but I felt it was too short but then again what would be considered too short in such a vast mythology I hope that there will be further adaptions the author did a splendid job

Couldn’t sound more boring! So disappointed :(

The book reads like it’s the authors second language! Great subject made to sound boring by the narrator!
