Audible Editor Reviews

Nicholas Boulton's smooth tone is well suited for this overview of the ancient civilization that developed around the Nile. His slow delivery and excellent enunciation provide listeners with ample time to comprehend the information provided and make complicated information accessible. Everything from the reign of various pharaohs and the building of the Sphinx to the mythical stories of gods and goddesses and the deciphering of hieroglyphics is covered. The use of music to separate sections adds to the mood. The production ends somewhat abruptly after brief coverage of the discovery of Tutankhamun's tomb in the twentieth century.
