Easy To Digest

Any additional comments?

I found this book highly informative and an easy enough to understand. I like the way she separates the creation myths together from the different seats of power in Egypt as well as guiding the reader through her thoughts on the subject matter.

Very Informative

Any additional comments?

Bought it for research on a story I am writing and it is very informative. Egyptian mythology is convoluted and other sources just weren't making things clear to me, this book gave me all the answers I was looking for.
