Wow!

I was amazed by how many nations, cultures, and regions shared mythological characters overlapping and deviating from each other alike.

Superb!

I am of the opinion that this should be almost five stars, since it contains so much content and it's almost perfect.

Inuits and Polynesians

Those are the kinds of myths you don't often hear unless you watch Moana. But hey, they are out there, and they are mysterious. Good book.

Ancient myths from the orient and beyond

Whether it's Japanese, Inuit, Inca, or Aztec mythology, there is a lot there. Not as typical as the standard Greek and Roman ones.

This is such a great deal!

All the myths from around the world.... well, maybe not all of them, but you can get a lot of myths here that you probably never heard of. That's what makes this book unique. It's not the typical Greek or Roman mythology, but Inuit, Aztec, African, etc.

Inuit mythology? Where can you find a book about that? I mean, and then the others are pretty interesting too.

Great audiobook

Nice job! I liked the Polynesian mythology the best, since I've just seen Moana and felt connected to the Polynesian people.

Africans and Inuit

You can find some unique mythological stories the teachers didn't tell you at high school and the YouTubers failed to recognize. Do yourself a favor and get this book. Get educated!

This one contains even more myths and books in one. 14 hours, best deal ever, and complementary to the other bundles of Bernard Hayes.

A lot of myths

And this is not a myth: This book is fantastic. I encourage everyone to listen to it and become familiar with the cultural inclinations it contains.
