Another kudos to its level of readability.

Another glory to its level of readability is how author has organized the audible. The book is ordered chronologically from ancient to the end of pagan Rome, and chapters are concise without losing important details, and it's hard to put down the book 'til the last page. Perfect to arouse anyone's interest in ancient history.

A fresh, accurate description ancient civilization

Any additional comments?

The author writes in a very flowing manner by telling the narratives of people in the ancient world rather than regurgitating bland historical events. It makes for a brilliantly decipherable history book, even as it is packed with accurately researched historical facts.

Great historical summary!

The author brings mortality to great legends of the history. The book also includes the often neglected histories about the area. I recommend this title to anyone that loves stories in general, and is pursuing an understanding of Ancient History in particular.

Very interesting historical book. Written in an easily followed style without the dryness often found in such books. This is very in depth, woah. I wasn’t expecting for it to be so lengthy. I honestly have a hard time following along with books like this for some reason,

Some people have a knack for making history sound truly entertaining others are just educational without being fun to read, and this book falls into the second category.

Great and informative!!!

This is beginning to arouse curiosity about these civilizations with the eight year old, such as when and where and what people were like. I have always read about the Maya more than the others, so this is a fun listen for me.
