Wow! I learned so much.

It took me a little while to get use to the narrator, but after I did, I couldn't get enough. I have always be amazed at how much our modern world is still so influenced by Ancient Mythology. It is everywhere. I enjoyed this book very much.

Some good some god awful

The 'good' is the material. All three stars are for the book. The author has made the information interesting and precise. The 'god awful' is the narrator. Alec Sand is deadly dull. Little or no inflection in his reading at all. He has a long list of audio books to his credit which I find amazing. I'll definitely avoid anything of his in the future. This is one where I recommend you read the book. Stay away from the audio.

Outstanding Work...

...but really bad reader. Feels like he's reading out his grocery list. Shame as the subject is really interesting and the research is comprehensive and thorough.

Probably a fantastic book, but...

What did you like best about The Mythology of Ancient Egypt, Mesopotamia, Greece and Rome? What did you like least?

If you get on with random pauses, crammingofsentances,and stopping. In the middle of sentences. WithUTTERLYarbitraryBURSTS of emphasis IN THEwrong. Place. Theyyouwillenjoy this BOOK.

Otherwise, I'd give it a miss. I'm 3 hours in, it is very interesting and well researched but I can't stand the narrator for a moment longer. If you're looking for an in depth introduction for world mythology, search for "Don't know much about mythology" instead. It has much the same content and is very well read.

Hard to listen

The narrator cuts down sentences into meaning less chunks. I must rate it lower for the performance.
