Do you know that the Sumerians believed that:
The moon was actually a god child conceived unintentionally by the God Enlil and a maid?
Or that humans were first created to do the chores on earth for the Gods and Goddesses?
The ancient Sumerians lived a difficult life, and this is reflected in their myths. However, also reflected in their stories is their love for justice and the values which they most supported, among them beauty, honor, and truthfulness.
Some of the stories included are:
- How the world, the moon, mankind and animals were created
- The retelling of the Epic of Gilgamesh: the legend of the very first hero in history
- Ninurta and the slaying of the demon Asag
- The Myths of Kur: the Dragon Conqueror
- Inanna’s journey to the underworld
- And many other amazing tales!

Good: An alternative choice of tablets sourced ...
An alternative choice of tablets were sourced to provide a more complete picture for those familiar with the more commonly known ones.
The dramatization and communication between characters amusingly answers the audience's questions.

Given the great antiquity and limited scope of source material this work does a good a job of extracting narratives.

a study of mythology is not a story
odd to ask readers/listeners how to rate the story of study, in this case a study of myth.

Not a True Mythology
I was very disappointed with this book. The author did not realistically portray the myths. He appears to have take the most basic elements of the myths and written his own sugar coated, politically correct, and irritatingly useless filler.
