Publisher's Summary

Herodotus wrote the first history book in the world. That is why he is sometimes called the "Father of History". He lived about 2500 years ago in the fifth century BC. He was born at a place called Halicarnassus in Asia Minor. The modern names for these places are Bodrum in Turkey. Herodotus was a keen traveler who went all over the ancient world and was interested in everything he saw and heard.

    Story
    "For every fan of American gods"

    If you are a fan of American gods this is a must read. Shadow was big on the writings of Herodotus. Read this and find out why. Great read and a great companion to the Neil Gaimen story. I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator, or publisher.

    Story
    "Mythology at it's Finest"

    This was a very interesting book. It was a combobulation of short stories based around mythology. One of the things that made the book unique was the music. Generally, I find that music detracts from the story and it's not good. However, in this instance, the music was placed in between the stories and gave the listener a brief moment to digest the story that just occurred. It also kept the story flowing from one to the next.

    I really enjoyed Catherine O'Brien's style of presentation. Her diction was clear, her presentation was interesting. She did a nice job.

    Story
    "Really fun read"

    Just Goes to show that people are people no matter how long ago. They rarely listen to good advice and are pig headed when it comes to bad "This book was given to me for free at my request and I provided this voluntary review."
