I wish I didn't buy this book. If it had been categorized as a romance novel, I wouldn't have, but it came up in a Sci-fi/Fantasy search, and I thought it looked interesting from the description.
If you like reading typical genre romance full of cliches, flat characters, unoriginal storylines, and amateurish writing, you might enjoy this book, but I couldn't stand it.
I should have known better when I couldn't even find the book on Amazon to read reviews. In the future, I will never purchase an audio book without reading a few reviews first.
I found this audio book difficult to listen to because of the narration. She spoke very slowly and over-pronounced every single word.
As for the book itself, I didn't really enjoy it, partly because it seemed to come to a lot of conclusions about myth's history and origins and the way our ancestors thought based on very little evidence. Also, she seemed to keep saying the sames things over and over again and didn't really offer a lot of substance.
That said, this is my first Karen Armstrong book and I am still definitely planning on reading more of her books. But I found this audio book very unsatisfying.
