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.

Entertaining take on familiar mythology

Genuinely funny. Plenty of authors think they're funny, and most aren't. So I was surprised how often this book made me smile or laugh out loud. The humor ranged from snarky to cheesy, and not every joke landed, but the net value comes out to "VERY FUNNY." Jason Hunt's narration helps save some of the cheesy jokes and generally makes the book very enjoyable.
For those that are familiar with Egyptian mythology and want a serious read, there's nothing here. It's a basic look at Egyptian Mythology, simply told in a highly entertaining way.

Good place to begin learning

I was given this free review copy 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.

It does exactly what you'd expect.

This is a short introduction to the history of Ancient Egypt but covers a lot of the most salient points like Pharaohs and the gods, mummification and the importance of the Nile.
My daughter did work in school on Ancient Egypt last year and found this really useful, enjoyable and well presented.

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.
