THE STORY OF EGYPT The Civilization That Shaped the World

Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Kate Reading

History • 17.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2016

From the startling revelation that there were at least 10 female pharaohs up to the reign of Cleopatra, ancient Egypt unfolds dramatically to fascinate listeners. What's more, the abundance of new information on the four thousand years revealed in this audiobook is delivered in a pitch-perfect performance by Kate Reading. Egyptian society's rich contributions to the arts and sciences are discussed in detail, and Reading's captivating narration sparkles like the Egyptian jewelry found in the many tombs excavated in modern times. She brings the characters and dynasties to life with crisp descriptive passages and dialogue so realistic that the ancients seem to come alive. E.E.S.
