Very informative and funny

Jason Hunt is one of my favorite narrators he brings life to the stories that he reads. The book was informative I learned a lot. I highly recommend this book if you like to be entertained. I received this book at my own request. I am leaving my honest opinion here of my own volition.

Very enjoyable.

I listened to this book at 1.30x

David Fuentes is very funny in making mythology fun to learn about. I cant wait to get more myth books by him.

It's a funny book informing you who's who in Egyptian Mythology.

How they got their names. who they were married to , their parents and children.

It was witty. the vocal artist Jason Hunt did a very very good job.

Worth Your Time

It's a quick listen and it kept my attention. Of course, I've always loved ancient Egyptian things. Some of this was a review for me, but other bits were new and helped connect all the pieces. There were touches of humor (some definite dad jokes) and pop culture references throughout to make it not just a straight history. All in all, I'm pleased with this listen.

Good place to begin learning

I was given this audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.
I enjoyed the book, it was short and presented the information very well, Gave a concise overview of the many gods and their relationships. I really liked how the author used small jokes to compare some of the events to today's events.
Recommended for those who are any bit interested in knowing more about the history of the Egyptian Myths.

Fascinating Mythologies!

I have been fascinated with mythology since I was a teenager and this was a great opportunity for me to listen about several ancient mythologies around the world. Some of the info I already knew but there were much more detailed myths that I didn’t know. These books are also interesting because the author has included some of the history of each area.

What a great listen! Fun and Informative.

It's rare that book intended to educate actually makes me smile and laugh so much along the way! What a pleasure this is to listen to. All materials meant to educate and inform should be this much fun. I am a bit of an amateur history and mythology buff and found this to be a terrific 'quick and dirty' primer on Egyptian Mythology. The information is spot on without being overwhelming and is delivered with just the right amount of humor. The narrator has a lovely voice and moves along at a comfortable pace. All-in-all, a very well done audiobook! (I did receive this free in exchange for review but that in no way has colored my opinion.)

Humorous Sampling of History and Mythology

The author introduces a list of the Egyptian deities with humorous asides which add interest especially for young readers. Then he lists a few of the Egyptian pharaohs with interesting facts about them and funny remarks . The last portion recounts the story of the Ten Plagues from the Bible.

It sparked my interest in further reading about Egyptian history and mythology. I believe this is the author’s purpose in writing the book and in my case, he accomplished it!

Funny and Informative

I received this book in exchange for my honest review.
Although this book only begins to explore Egyptian Myths, it is worth the listen. The narration is great, and makes learning fun. I enjoyed hearing about myths I didn't know existed, and appreciated the commentary the author included for each one. If you want a quick, witty, and informative listen this book is perfect for you!

An entertaining short listen...

Egyptian Myths You Must Know Before You Die! by David Fuentes and narrated by Jason Hunt is an entertaining short listen. This book is similar style to the authors Greek Myth book but Egyptian Mythology (duh), so my review will be similar. You learn the good, the bad, the ugly. There’s a little pop-culture and humor thrown in. It was a short enough listen to keep my interest but not long enough that it put me to sleep. With that being said, these books are not for everyone- listen if you don’t mind humor that goes anywhere or don’t mind learning the brutality behind some of the myths (incest, different way the Gods could kill you, etc.). The narrator, Jason Hunt, did a good job. I’d listen to him again.

“Horus lost one of his eyes in a brutal fight with his uncle Seth of which became the ‘Eye of Horus’ a powerful amulet that the Egyptians worshiped in its own right for its protective properties against evil, danger, and disease; but not against those cravings you have for McDonald’s.”

“Ever the showboater he can often be seen sporting an Atef crown which had ostrich feathers and a gold disk on top.”

Just Enough to Whet Your Appetite

This review is for the audiobook version of Egyptian Myths You Must Know Before You Die! by David Fuentes and narrated by Jason Hunt.

I'm pretty well-versed on my Greek, Roman, and even Norse mythology. However, I have to admit, I'm woefully ignorant when it comes to Egyptian mythology. I found this book just enough to whet my appetite. Fuente's text is generally interesting and occasionally humorous.

Because I'm not familiar with these stories, I'll need to seek out something with a bit more meat.

The narrator, Jason Hunt, does a fine job bringing this work to life as he did with Fuente's Greek Mythology book.

***Full Disclosure: I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator, or publisher.

More Egyptian Mythology explained

I enjoyed this book about Egypt's Mythology. I admit that at times Egyptian mythology can be confusing, especially because some of the names are very close to each other. This is a relatively simple read. The stories are well told and kept my interest.

A great little diversion.

For what it is, it’s a great, funny little listen, but I was hoping for more ‘stories’ than just a list of facts like a dictionary.
Sometimes it’s a little repetitive as you get the same fact regarding the wife during her husbands turn and hers for example.
All in all though, would definitely recommend and listen to more of them.
The narrator perfectly suits the book.
This is my honest opinion of a free review copy.

A very quick introduction

Divided into four sections - the gods, the Pharoes, the ten plagues of Moses and general information - there is little time to dwell on any topic, but a lot is packed into this very short book. The names of some twenty gods are listed, with their attributes and an occasional associated story; the plagues, with explanations, are also given in full. Very few of the Kings (or queens) are given a mention, however, beyond, arguably, the most famous and it is a pity that the final section was very brief, mostly touching lightly on the Nile itself, mummification and The Book of the Dead. All was delivered by Jason Hunt, with a deliciously deep and plucky voice, replete with sardonic amusement, easy to enjoy.
On the downside, too much time was wasted on patronising jokes and references to Disney cartoons. Whilst this is a simple starter introduction to Egyptology and some humour is welcome, less would have made this subject to be one worthy of further examination.

I was fortunate in being freely gifted with a complimentary copy of this book, at my request. Thank you. A useful starter, especially for anyone interested in the multitude of Egyptian deities.
