Amateurish attempt ! Not worth listening to.
If this book wasn’t for you, who do you think might enjoy it more?
Amateur effort in gathering this book together. I have lived in Egypt and travelled extensively - and this book does not cut it.
What will your next listen be?
Thutmose III (research this King)

it can be returned - is the redeeming quality
Any additional comments?
Don't bother - the small sample won't tell you anything.
