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)

What does Becky Parker bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

Good narrator

You didn’t love this book--but did it have any redeeming qualities?

it can be returned - is the redeeming quality

Any additional comments?

Don't bother - the small sample won't tell you anything.
