Publisher's Summary

A new version of The Epic of Gilgamesh by Sebastian Lockwood. This is the story of Gilgamesh, King of Kings, who brought back knowledge from before the flood - who loved and lost his companion Enkidu and had to find out why we die.
The Epic of Gilgamesh was written on clay tablets over 4,000 years ago, in what is today Baghdad Iraq - the Biblical Garden of Eden between the Tigris and the Euphrates.
Having performed the story for years, Lockwood gives a passionate reading from a text that faithfully follows the original.

Captain Kirk reads Gilgamesh?

Would you try another book from Sebastian Lockwood (adaptation) and/or Sebastian Lockwood?

If you can imagine a British Shakespearean actor reading The Epic of Gilgamesh as Captain James T. Kirk might read it... then I highly recommend this audio book for you.

What did you like best about this story?

The story itself and its ancient history.

What didn’t you like about Sebastian Lockwood’s performance?

His read; an overly dramatic start and stop performance that honestly does sound like William Shatner when he portrayed Captain Kirk on Star Trek.

What character would you cut from The Epic of Gilgamesh?

You can not cut a character from this story - this story is thousands of years old - adding text to the story it bad enough; but you should not cut any of the original text and certainly not cut a character.

Any additional comments?

Authors should do the writing and hire others to do the reading.

Good introduction

The book is a good introduction to the Sumerian epic, if a little dramatic in presentation.
