This analysis of the role that myth has played in human history from Paleolithic times to the present is short and, depending on your response to the author's writing, dull or witty. This listener falls in the middle, although she does wish the author's point--that the rise of reason and loss of myth are causing havoc in modern society--were presented with more verve. Sandra Burr tries her best to make the book listenable by infusing energy into her reading. While enthusiastic, her efforts are delivered at a consistently high pitch, which is tiring on the ear. Nonetheless, Burr's pacing is strong, which helps makes Armstrong's serious subject easier to follow. A.C.S. © AudioFile 2006, Portland, Maine [Published: FEB/ MAR 06]
