" With only a slight acquaintance with Hindu mythology, this reader was keen to know more. This book, as well as introducing some of the stories, also covered the narrative outline of the two epic poems, the Mahabharata and the Ramayana, both of which are very long (the former encompassing 18 books) as well as dating back many hundreds of years. Both poems act as spiritual and life lesson teaching guides and this book has helped in the selection of which to read. It also includes a brief analysis of the Gita, one of the volumes of the Mahabharata, and it's value in both spiritual and everyday life. One of the most interesting parts of this book was the outlined Creation myths, the Cosmic Egg and the four great yugas, cycles of growth and destruction. The narration by Oliver Hunt was eloquent, clearly read at a speed which allowed for the information to be absorbed. He also effortlessly pronounced the sometimes challenging names. His is a pleasant, well modulated English accented voice that made an excellent foil for the text. With such an enormous subject to cover, including, as the author admits, contradictory texts since the stories are drawn from vast regions of place and time, this small volume acts as a good introduction. This reader would, however, have prefered a greater elaboration on the epic poems rather than the short individual tales about the gods, for example, the 3rd Eye of Shiva, or the tale of the war of the churning sea of milk. So many unfamiliar names for the novice to take on board in a tiny space of time was overwhelming. Overall, however, a good introduction, well told. My thanks to the rights holder of Hindu Mythology, who, at my request, freely gifted me a complimentary copy, via Audiobook Boom. It has certainly encouraged me to look more deeply into the subject.

    This is the first book I’ve read/listened to by this author. I see he has many other books about mythology, and I’d love to listen to more. This book gives us a condensed version of Hindu stories, and has enough side comments to give me an understanding about the background or basis of these myths or tales. I had no idea the Hindu believe that the earth was created so long ago. Amazing to think such lengths of time were considered amongst ancient peoples.

I had no idea the Hindu believe that the earth was created so long ago. Amazing to think such lengths of time were considered amongst ancient peoples. This is the first book I’ve listened to by this narrator ( Oliver Hunt ). I think he did well reading these stories. I’m not sure what the correct pronunciations are, but it sounded great to me. There are no explicit sex scenes, excessive violence or swearing. I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and voluntarily left this unbiased review. Please feel free to comment on whether you found my review helpful. Story 4/5 Narration 4/5

    I really like this whole series. Like the other books, this provides a good, basic introduction to the central myths of the Hindu religion. I did, sometimes find it difficult to follow the various characters but I blame that on my own unfamiliarity with Indian naming conventions than on any fault in the narrative or the narrator. If you're interested in other cultures or taking a comparative religions course, this would be a great place to start. I really like this whole series.
