Publisher's Summary

The Ancient Epic of Gilgamesh Brought to Life 

In the ancient world after the Flood, the sons of Noah fill the Earth. Wickedness reigns.    

One giant warrior king named Gilgamesh sets out on an epic journey to seek eternal life in a land filled with death.   

Accompanied by his only friend, the wild-man Enkidu, his quest takes them from a giant’s forest, to the mountain of the gods, to the Path of the Sun in the Underworld....

And ultimately to a distant magical island to find the one man granted divine favor during the Deluge: Noah.   

The secret Gilgamesh discovers will change history forever.    

Gilgamesh Immortal is the third book of the Biblical Fiction Series Chronicles of the Nephilim, a biblical epic story of the fallen angelic Watchers and their offspring, the Nephilim giants of Genesis 6.

Don't Even Bother

It's like a badly written fanfiction by a 13-year-old girl who thinks she's a Biblical scholar. And it's written by a dude.

What really got me was the author's claim that he didn't deviate from the Gilgamesh epic very much. Except he deviates from it a lot. There's so many dissimilarities between this book and the original epic, that I can't list them all here.

My advice; go read a modern translation of the original epic.

Interesting Read

I appreciated Brian's retelling of the Epic of Gilgamesh especially as he was careful not to leave out any details of the original. I really liked listening to the audiobook and I look forward to the next in the series. Well done Mr. Godawa

Amazing narration, w/ a medley of biblical events + story telling

I love it. I loved how he wove everything together. It helps to make it identifiable, believable. I think that’s what our problem is nowadays, society cannot fathom the sheer greatness of God and the fishbowl of deception and lies we love in. So thanks, it helps paint a beautiful picture. You have a wonderful gift.

pricey

love the books but the series is kind of pricey taking into consideration books are usually 10 to 13 hours sometimes 15 hours long these books are only 7 to 8 hours. I like the story plot but the price is going a little bit overboard

Let the truth be retold

Gilgamesh Immortal: Chronicles of the Nephilim (Volume 3) i’ve always found the story of the epic of Gilgamesh fascinating. But when I saw this novel I thought 0h no what’s up here, Gilgamesh and The Bible. The way Brian weaves the web of the chronicles it just works. The twist at the end of the novel is almost prophetic. The retelling of history as they want it.

Exciting and refreshing perspective

I loved the ideas expressed in this book about Gilgamesh meeting Noah and that he changes his name. Name changes help tie this story to biblical stories and helps engage my imagination.
I loved the adventure but could have done without the violent sexual acts described in detail.
I’d recommend this to adults wanting biblical based fiction adventures.

Well Crafted Overview of Mythic Culture in Bible..

Well crafted overview of mythic culture in Bible times!
Gilgamesh is a heartless tyrant of a King who has his perspective changed by a “Wildborn”; a Tarzan-like fellow (only with a Lot more hair!). The heroics are fast moving and relentless as they face impossible odds together and conquer incredible foes of Biblical and mythical proportion.
Why does the ancient writing “The Epic of Gilgamesh “ have so much in common with the early chapters of Genesis?
In an appendix Brian Godawa explains the sources and concepts behind his well crafted and well acted out tale.
The kindle version is better suited for young readers. The audio version has more sexual content.
After reading while listening to this exciting tale, I understand more about the Bible’s use of Rahab the sea monster, and Leviathan, and also about Ishtar and the “sons of god” who were assigned to rule over the various nations.
...a painless study in the mythology that was well known during Bible times!

A story that comes to life

I’ve always wanted to read the story of Gilgamesh but the thought of a heavy tome put me off. Not so with this audio by Brian Godawa. The narrative was so descriptive,and told at times with humour, that the story was enthralling. I am looking forward to listening to further audio books about the heroes of yore coming back to life.
