Doesn't deserve anything less than 5 stars

I guess I could go over each one of these books and mention all the strong points and the few weaknesses. I'm not a professional reviewer, so sorry, but that would take an eternity to figure all out to me, so I am just going to leave it at a few bullet points.

- First, the value. It's almost 37 hours. What else can I say? Get a credit and get it.
- Second, the interesting fact that all these stories have their own twists, their own cultural backgrounds, etc. But in a sense, some of the gods and goddesses share some commonalities. For example, most of these cultures have a fertility god or goddesses, a main god, a god of death, of creation, and all the main themes. And then there are the creatures, the fairies, the spirits, and the legendary heroes. Very much fun to listen to. It sparks the imagination. Strange to me that people believed these kinds of things, but then again, it might not be so different from believing anything invisible, including our own belief in an almighty God somewhere in the universe.
- Third, the narration was great. I mean, it wasn't perfect. But I liked it.
- Fourth, I cannot even begin to mention how much time it must have taken to put a bundle together like that. Doing so goes to show how much this author or publisher respects its customers.
- Fifth, I knew about Greek gods, something about Viking gods, etc. But Indian ones and Egyptian ones were pretty strange and new to me. This is another reason why I enjoyed it. It's like learning something I didn't already know.


Well, there, you have it. Like I said, it's not 100% perfect. But in my opinion, great value and great enjoyment (I keep using that word "great") for a gre.... uhm... good price. That's it.

Liked it a lot

I listened to this audiobook, and it was definitely motivational. Not only did this audiobook seem like it was top quality, but it also showed me essential things about daily life, and about this theme in particular, of course. So, it absolutely deserves a couple of hard-earned stars.

All the myths combined

Yes, makes sense. Why not bundle all the books in one? Maybe because that gives you a too-good-to-be-true deal if you have a credit? Man, how is this author make her money back from that? I don't know how it all works, but I do know when I see a good deal, such as this one.

A lot of good information.

Despite the poor English translation, unusual pronunciations and hesitation before native words, this book is not that bad. I would suggest going back and changing the words "kid/kids" with the words "child/children" and the words "guy/guys" with the words "man/men".

I recommend this

How can I not? It's got all those myths and gods and... yeah, it's great. It is what it says it is, no less. No deception there. It's truly all the mythological stories and backgrounds of the cultures of these countries.

Terrible pronunciation!

Sadly it was returned only a few minutes in, I'm sure the stories are well researched and put together but the narrator can't pronounce the simplest of words, it's she sounds like an AI voice, it's simply not listenable.
Eg. 'Madagascar' is pronounced 'Mada-gas-kaaar, and I stopped when she pronounced 'Niche' as 'Nitch'.
Very dissaponted

Disappointing

On the surface this book looked like a real winner. Great reviews. 36 hours of pure mythological gold. 6 books in 1, 'Today must be your lucky day', etc. My experience was very different. The content is actually good stuff, and has potential, but it seems to need some rather serious editing. For example, it launches straight in, without any introduction, giving me in 5 minutes 10 African myths, which went by so fast that I can't remember a single one. Then there was the grammar which at times began to grate on me. I doubt this is the failure of the narrator, probably rather with Kelly Mass' style of writing, which at times could be a bit too questionably colloquial.

Notwithstanding, the narration was poor. It's seemingly read without much understanding, almost as if the narrator is just looking at the words and pronouncing them, a bit like a robot. There are also mistakes the narrator makes, which become really difficult to ignore. The recording quality was a significant let down for such an expensive audio book, that was my first indication that this might have been a badly spent credit.

To be blunt, this is the kind of quality audio book I would expect from Librovox, not from Audible.

There's no way I could listen to all 36 hours of this. It's a return I'm afraid. Check out the 'Myths and Legends' podcast instead.

20 mins in I've had enough

being from Ireland I skipped to the irish chapters and listened for not very long. the narrator is terrible. pronunciation of names and places are painful to hear. I know the irish language is difficult to read and pronounce but a little research will give you the sounds of the words. the narrator also hesitates and at one point corrected herself. I bought the book with the hopes of passing on some of the knowledge but how can I if I don't hear the correct words? I'm sure it is a wonderful book to read but as an audiobook read by this woman I am sadly done with it already. I was looking forward to listening to 30+ hours and judging by the high ratings I thought it would be enjoyable. maybe I'm the only irish person that's bought it? I'm sorry but I honestly cannot believe that anyone could give this book 5 stars
