Summary

A captivating collection of the most popular Egyptian myths.  

It can be challenging to find a comprehensive and engaging collection of Egyptian myths considering the number of versions and translations available. However, look no further, as you have found a captivating audiobook that includes many of the most popular Egyptian myths in an easy-to-listen-to format.  

This audiobook is divided into four parts. The first, titled “Cosmological Narratives,” contains myths concerning the creation of the world and how the ancient Egyptians understood the structure of the underworld and the passage to the afterlife.  

“Myths of the Gods” contains the great myths of the gods Ra, Isis, Osiris, Horus, and Set.  

The third section contains two political myths, the tale of the birth of Hatshepsut and “The Tale of the Famine”, both of which are stories created by rulers to consolidate their power by claiming divine intervention and favor.  

Other stories, similar to what we today would call fairy tales, make up the last section of the audiobook, and they are full of magical wonders, animals that speak, and gods who reveal themselves to human beings and take an active role in their affairs.  

In this audiobook, you'll find the following Egyptian myths and topics covered:  

  • Creation myths
  • The birth of Osiris
  • The tale of Isis and Osiris
  • The lament of Isis and Nephthys
  • The battle of Horus and Set
  • The birth of Queen Hatshepsut
  • The tale of the famine
  • The shipwrecked sailor
  • The two brothers
  • The princess and the demon
  • The taking of Joppa
  • Two tales of Setne Khamwas

Beautifully Described

This is a beautifully described book with very thorough explanation of who the different deities are; gods, and goddesses, during this amazing high point in African civilization. I recommend this book to anyone who is at the beginner level because it gives you a clear description of how deities assume various roles at different times; and how they influenced later concepts of divinity.

Gods and Godesses

This book has every single God and Goddess of Ancient Egypt listed in it and their history. I do not know of a more complete book than this. If you're into the history of the Gods/Goddesses of Ancient Egypt, then I would highly recommend this book to you.

Wonderful beginners' book to start a lifelong "love" of history and mythology. Makes for a great "rainy" day reader. My granddaughter is especially fond of stories from this book. An easy read with good information.

Useful Book

Mostly this is a useful book. It is very complete, and offers a nice format for the history and iconography of the gods and goddesses. However, it is a bit puzzling that the authors opted to group the deities the way they did, with mammalian, avian and other General categories.

The Book You'll Enjoy

I enjoyed the content of the book but would have liked more pictures of gods & goddesses. I wanted to be able to identify them on temple & tomb walls in Egypt. I felt it gave me a solid foundation in Egyptian mythology though.
