Publisher's Summary

From what we know of history, Egypt, along with Sumer, were the foundations of civilization. The Fertile Crescent, which stretched from the Nile Valley to the twin rivers in Mesopotamia, gave us our earliest glimpse of organized man. But organized how? For one, both locations gave us writing - hieroglyphics in Egypt and cuneiform in Sumer. There is still some debate about who was first.
In this audiobook, we will start by looking at the gods and goddesses of Kemet - Ancient Egypt. Then, we will turn our attention to the monsters which likely gave them nightmares and humbled them in their quest to bring order to the world around them. Finally, we will look at the mortals which shaped their civilization and made Egypt the bedrock of our own history. Though Egypt today is only a third-world nation, struggling with terrorism and poverty, their heritage remains vital to the understanding of who we are as a species.

Enjoyed It

Any additional comments?

I really enjoy this book. It's described as a story which makes it more fun, and easier to understand! It is for beginners or even children. I'm 32 and don't mind listening to it one bit. It's knowledgeable and you can enjoy it as well at the same time.

Fascinating

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

no.

Any additional comments?

While I wish they used Egyptian rubrics for the artistic depictions, it does a good job of presenting Egyptian mythology without being so much over. I love that they use the Egyptian names instead of the Greek, as well.

Ancient people and their Gods.

Any additional comments?

The book was clear and compact, required when being carried to a new topic. which often strengthened early statements. Recommended to anyone as a starting point for the study on Egyptian life.
