    Story
    "Captain Kirk reads Gilgamesh?"
    Would you try another book from Sebastian Lockwood (adaptation) and/or Sebastian Lockwood?

    If you can imagine a British Shakespearean actor reading The Epic of Gilgamesh as Captain James T. Kirk might read it... then I highly recommend this audio book for you.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The story itself and its ancient history.


    What didn’t you like about Sebastian Lockwood’s performance?

    His read; an overly dramatic start and stop performance that honestly does sound like William Shatner when he portrayed Captain Kirk on Star Trek.


    What character would you cut from The Epic of Gilgamesh?

    You can not cut a character from this story - this story is thousands of years old - adding text to the story it bad enough; but you should not cut any of the original text and certainly not cut a character.


    Any additional comments?

    Authors should do the writing and hire others to do the reading.
