Publisher's Summary

This book on Egyptian mythology is part of the best-selling series, Norse Mythology - Egyptian Mythology - Greek Mythology. In this ultimate guide on Egyptian mythology, you will discover captivating stories of the gods, goddesses, monsters, and mortals.

In this audiobook, you will also find factual history as well as insightful information regarding Egyptian mythology.

This audiobook is broken into three parts:

  • Fantastic Images - Ancient Egyptian myths and legends as we know them today
  • Factual History - Covering pre-history through classical antiquity
  • Unraveling Myth - Looking at Egyptian mythology from a fresh perspective

This audiobook is jam-packed with fascinating facts and stories. For instance, it covers perhaps the most popular of all the Egyptian stories - the myth of Osiris. Pieces of this story have been found throughout Egypt. One of the most appealing aspects of the Osiris myth is the human-like behavior of the gods within the story. Many of the other gods of the Egyptian pantheon were rather emotionless and their stories far less interesting. With the Osiris story, the gods display a broad range of emotions that made them more real to mere mortals.

Just some of the questions and topics covered in this audiobook include:

  • Egypt in context
  • Creation
  • Fall of humanity
  • Osiris myth
  • Chief gods of the egyptian pantheon
  • Lesser known pantheon
  • Secrets of Giza - sphinx and pyramids
  • King list
  • Ancient Egyptian history
  • Classical antiquity
  • Dragons and other creatures
  • Osiris, Isis, Seth and Horus
  • The meaning of myth

nice book

I really enjoy this book. It's explained as a story which makes it funner, and easier to understand! It is for beginners or even children. I'm 21 and don't mind listening it one bit. It's knowledgeable and has well so you can see what they're supposed to look like.

five stars

While I wish they used Egyptian rubrics for the artistic depictions, it does a good job of introducing Egyptian mythology without being overly graphic (for example, it doesn't say which of the pieces of Usir was missing). I love that they use the Egyptian names instead of the Greek, as well

i love this book

: this is a great book that I highly recommend, and even though she left out quite a few gods, I think the ones she left out aren't completely needed. Also, the added feelings and thoughts give more life to the story, making it more engaging for older listeners. I think that you'll love this book.

beautiful books

Simply LOVE IT! The binding, the artwork, the tales, the quality of the paper.. every detail of this book makes it wonderful! I was looking for a book like this since it's perfect for children. It makes it fun for them to read. The only thing is that some of the vocabulary is a bit advance so you will definitely need them.
I bought also the Greek and Norse mythology and will definitely buy the Tales from the Arabian Night too.

just an Excellent book

Any additional comments?

This is an ideal must-have book for anyone researching the belief, gods, and goddesses of ancient Egypt. It provides a unique and likely history of the creation and content of Egyptian religion and outlines the myths and fables through the various repetitions possible, and The Book of the Dead. It's a great sourcebook for the many religious cities and the different combinations of deities that controlled in each one. Just an excellent book.

Definitely nice heroes. Excellent writing that is clear but not overly difficult. Was a Christmas present for the 12yr old young man and he was so pleased and inspired when he saw it. Will for sure be buying the other Audiobooks!

just a starting point

Any additional comments?

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.

I enjoyed this Audiobook

Any additional comments?

I enjoyed this Audiobook.Considering it is a brief survey, it has a lot of knowledge in it.This book explains to us that Egyptian Mythology grows as the time goes by but in today's time; it did not change. This book did not bore me and you will hear and learn a lot from it well done.<br/>
