Terrible

1. Half the names used were the Greek names, not the actual Egyptian names.
2. Most of the stories are vague and watered down.
3. This is overall a decent reading with some facts, but still an extremely poor interpretation/retelling of the mythologies of Ancient Egypt. It was as if the stories have been told from a colonizer. The versions of the myths are very white washed and dilute the actual mythologies and beliefs held by the Acient Egyptians. At one point, the book even attempts to discredit the mythologies and beliefs, thereby disrespecting the culture of Ancient Egyptians (in my opinion). This was probably the worst, and least consistent, book on Ancient Egyptian mythologies and history I have ever read.

Thanks to author.

The author's intentions are clear; to write a Egyptian Mythology guide, and I feel that he has accomplished his goal. Yet his treatment of the material is somewhat superficial. I would have liked a broader perspective.

We highly recommend this book

These are three very readable summaries of complex mythologies. I found the books very obliging in giving me a foot hold in these mythologies . Good clear text and easy to understand. I have got lots of knowledge from this bundle of books.

Helpful

When I was a kid I would spend countless hours reading about Greek gods and their stories. So much to learn from them.
This Audiobook has helped me re-connect with this old passion of mine and refresh some of my knowledge.

I enjoyed this book

I loved reading and hearing about each story of the Gods and Goddess. I loved how each one was left and focused on one at a time.If you have a Greek mythology lover this book is a must have. It's HUGE and utterly beautiful. Excellent educational data and little-known facts.

Perfect guide

There is a lot of useful erudition about Egyptian Mythology. The book left a lot of topics in my mind, ones that would search more deeply and clearly into their gods and mythology and flesh out the details. But, this book is a good source point for anyone who is engaged in their belief system.
