Yes! I will most likely listen to this audiobook again when I finally get caught up on the backlog audiobooks I already have (over 500 hours worth). This is an excellent story set in Mesopotamia during the time of Gilgamesh the king. I can’t pronounce most of the characters names but it is quite nicely written.
probably the most memorable moment for me was the death of Inkydoo. He finally humbled King Gilgamesh, just not the way everyone was expecting.
I’ve slept some since finishing this audiobook so it is kind of difficult for me to be specific here. I just thought the narrator could have done a better job. I like her voice so that made it easier to listen to, but her pacing was kind of off at times.
Without a doubt it has to be Inkydoo. He starts out as wild desert nomad who kills lions with his bare hands and ends up the humble, lovable and innocent love of Shamahut the priestess who tamed him.
I really did enjoy this book! It moved a little slow in places, but that can be said for most books. I think if I listen to any more books written by Shauna Roberts I would like to hear from other narrators, though
