Great overview

Great overview of the Norse Egyptian and Greek pantheon. There's great content and it's told in the form of stories so it maintains interest and isn't overly academic. But you will still walk away with a good basic working knowledge of the three mythologies it covers.

Enjoyable to listen to

This book was a perfect joy to listen to. It was natural to follow and the stories were interesting. After hearing, I went out and bought the paperback, therefore I can use it as a reference in the future, just don't just get the book.It was good listening overall,

Terrible. Conspiracy theories and pseudo-science galore. Read Edith Hamilton's Mythology instead. Irresponsible, unfounded claims abound in this book, thinly veiled behind a half-hearted attempt at introducing the reader to the actual mythology the deceptive title claims the book is predominantly about.
