Is it just me? I could only take 3 hours of this and had to quit. What are the other reviewers getting out of this disjointed/dated text. The author is ALL over the place, tangent after tangent. Stephen Ambrose, David McCullough, Simon Winchester, Nathaniel Philbrick- I have several books by each of the authors and learn alot about the subjects of their particular books. I know very little about ancient Egypt and this book gave me zero more information, but I did get the author's biased views on many subjects NOT related to ancient Egypt. AND the narrator was just bad. Her toned of voice just grated on me. How could someone give this book a 5 star( and many reviewers did!!)?? Sorry, I just don't get it.
a good listen. Although is WAS helpful to go online to view/download the various maps that are referenced to throughout the story. Actually it is absolutely required to understand what is being said. But it is easy enough to do.
