Far below expectations

I initially purchased this book in order to know more about Egyptian mythology and the core values of their belief systems. This book falls short. While it provides several stories, it doesn't provide context for the tales or place the tales within the larger Egyptian context or society. The narration is a bit dry and lacks nuance.
