    Herodotus is not only the father of the art and the science of historical writing, but also one of the Western tradition's most compelling storytellers. In tales such as that of Gyges, who murders Candaules, the king of Lydia, and usurps his throne and his marriage bed, thereby bringing on, generations later, war with the Persians, Herodotus laid bare the intricate human entanglements at the core of great historical events.

    Story

    This is an excellent book to listen to. The main story is highly engaging and the book is full of interesting side stories. The narration is well done. The translation, however, is old-fashioned (plenty of 'thee's and thou's).
