narrator struggles to read. reads footnotes

really excited to listen to this book but the narrator sounds like a computer reading the text slows down over bigger words and then reads every footnote "x et al pg 7 ect.)". read the book not the audiobook

Great ancient egypt introduction

For those who are currently in the phase of getting introduced to the ancient histories, this audiobook is a perfect source. It tackles mostly about the egyptians but it did its purpose. Recommended.
