List of events

The writing provided more of a list of individuals and events rather than the stories that linked them together. I did not find the book very enjoyable or engaging.

Not to be heard

The book is better in written hard form. Reading of lists is better than listening to them. Obviously since it is so short a lot of material has to be eliminated. Most people would read this for a quick insight of popular history. Many of the popular concerns especially regarding Ramses the Great are not covered.
The narrator mispronounced basic English words neither using American or British pronunciations so how can I be confident in the Egyptian terms
