Publisher's Summary

Godlike Gilgamesh, King of Uruk, has built a beautiful city, but is also a terrible tyrant. In answer to the prayers of his oppressed citizens, the gods create Enkidu, a wild man whose destiny is to first fight Gilgamesh, and then become his life-long friend. They embark on adventures together, but when they kill the Bull of Heaven, Enkidu must pay the ultimate price.

Not the Epic of Gilgamesh

This is not the Epic of Gilgamesh but a children's story about the Epic. Nowhere in the product description is this stated.

The best narration.

The sample did not do the narrator justice. Absolutely superb. Excellently told and beautifully translated.
