Hard to navigate the book.

The stories that are told are good, for me who is totally new to mythologies it's helpful to have so many introductions to different mythologies.

With that said, the book would be so much better if there was an index for all chapters, now they are just numbered.
It's not smooth at all if you want to skip something or revise

Table of Contents

This is the type of "information" that requires a table of contents which would have been so easy to add in place of chapter 1, 2, 3...Also, the male narrator sounds like he's 'reading' when he should be 'telling' a story

Schoolboy Errors - 25 x 5 stars misleading

Having listened to some excellent mythology books on audible- mainly from Greek but also Norse- I bought this to learn some myths of cultures I wasn,t as familiar with.

I have only listened to just under two hours of this but I don't see my 1 star review as premiture.

It begins (and ends for me) with the Greek myths. The errors begin early on referring to a dispute Zeus settled between Hera and Hades over Persephone- not as it should have been between Demeter and Hades.

The next blinding error appears in the passage describing Apollo. Talking of the music contest between Pan and Apollo- Lewis says Apollo turns Midas EYES? Into the eyes of a Donkey for judging in Pan's favour. The logic of that is crazy even if you don't know the myth it's a far more logical thought to think Midas must have the EARS of a donkey to think Pan is sounds superior.

A passage relating to the Trojan war during the overview of Aries states that Athena Aries' lover and the god of love and beauty persuades him to join the Trojan side. Aphrodite is of course the true god of love and beauty and lover of Aries.

I honestly find it mindblowing this has 25 5 star reviews and that was one of the main reasons I bought the book. This should not be in the market let alone rated 5/5. I am no mythology scholar but someone who has basic knowledge of the Greek myths. This should have been proof read/listened to before release by someone who actually knows the myths to correct errors. Hard to believe it hasn't.

I have lost faith in this audiobook as a result of the basic inaccuracies and have no confidence to continue to the myths of cultues I know less well as I believe I will be learning with further inaccuracies. This is hugely dissapointing as the main reason for purchase was broadening my knowledge into new cultures.

I hope this helps you save your time, money and allows you to avoid similar dissapointment.

Facts

I actually got what i expected from this book. The length of the book almost put me off but after taking time to listen i discovered it was well narrated and the time actually fits. I love the introduction, actually got me prepared for every chapter of the book.

learning new ideas

I have no regret giving this book a 5 star. Thou, its one of the longest books have ever come across since i started listening to audio books but it was worth it. This book helped to correct the ideas i have about Babylonian and Assyrian Mythology. I also got to learn about the others for the first time. Learning through this book was worth it.
