Purchasing this book was a mistake on my part, though I've no one to blame but myself. The style they are imitating is not really my taste at the best of times and difficult to do well, and most of these stories do not do it very well. The quality of the stories varies a great deal, but few are good. I simply do not think it is worth the purchase price.
I enjoy this audio book. The quality of the story as accurate history is debatable, but it is terribly interesting as much for the perspective of Herodotus as anything else. The quality of the sounds varies at times, but it is generally pretty good.
