Great book

This is a great mythology book. I love stories like these. You can actually learn some moral lessons from them too. Everything had a deeper meaning when they came up with these myths, I bet.

This is interesting

I believe there are some other books by the same author and narrator. This one stood out as the most fascinating one to me, though. Exploring the ancient beliefs of the Chinese is something you should really get some more insights in.

Awesome. Good narrator too.

Fun to listen to

It's a book that the narrator definitely got into, even though it's uhm... nonfiction. I mean, could you call all these mythological stories nonfiction, or would they fall under fiction? Either way, he's passionate and professional. So that's about the sound, the quality, and everything.

Then the stories themselves: Nothing wrong with them. Trust me, I wish I would have come up with these insane myths. Were the Chinese crazy? Not really. Look at what the Europeans came up with, or the Native Americans, or what we still believe in today, with everything related to Adam and Eve etc. Sure, it doesn't mean none of it happened. I believe in the supernatural. But let's not turn this into a religious or philosophical discussion. I think it was all well written. Personally, I thought a few words were awkwardly placed in the wrong sentence. Was it a game changer? No. Definitely not. I understand the pain of writing, and I certainly have my own style, so I approve, and I give it a big fat 4 stars! Great stuff. Get it if you want, why not?

This made my day

You have got to love something like this. This cost a lot of time to write and record. Very good. That's what I feel. I thoroughly enjoyed listening to this book. It has all of the aspects of a publication regarding this theme that it should have. Having said that, I am typically positive anyway, bu Wow! The creator has actually put some work into this audiobook. I really loved it. Easily, one of the best audiobooks in this particular niche market. This is the utmost blend of a wonderful narrator and an exceptional writer, who partnered and chose to change this into a valuable product. Great for these guys.
