Gilgamesh of Uruk

(1 customer review)


Gilgamesh, son of the goddess Ninsun and the mortal Lugalbanda, is the arrogant king of the vibrant city of Uruk, a sprawling desert metropolis. In an attempt to quell Gilgamesh’s oppressive behavior, the gods fashion the wild man, Enkidu, to be a companion to the king and to calm his errant ways. The two form an inseparable bond, embark on a wild misadventure, and commit a series of blunders that offend the very gods who created Enkidu. What happens next sends Gilgamesh on an epic journey to find his ancestor, Utnapishtim the Faraway, to learn his story of survival and unlock the secrets of immortality.

    Ancient Epic Tale

    I received a free copy of this audiobook in exchange for an honest review.
    Although the ancient poem found in fragments fascinated me, I almost passed this modern version by because I couldn’t read the cover. Once I listened to it, I recognized the story from the ancient Mesopotamian mythology. The narration was adequate.
