You can skip or skim several chapters dealing with list of kings, etc. without bypassing the more interesting aspects of Babalonian life style, culture, living conditions, etc. While it bogs down in details, on the whole a fast and informative read. Read full review

Review: Babylonian Life and History

User Review  - Dave - Goodreads

Leave it to a British Victorian historian to utterly suck the life out of what I am sure was a fascinating and perplexing civilization. He writes like Joe Friday -- stick to the facts. Read full review

His written works consisted of translated texts and hieroglyphs and a complete dictionary of hieroglyphs. Budge's published works covered areas of Egyptian culture ranging from Egyptian religion, Egyptian mythology and magical practices. He was knighted in 1920. E.A.
