For my next book, I decided to read the oldest book I could find.Epic of Gilgamesh, according to everyone who knows about stuff like that, is it.I downloaded it from Project Gutenberg and got started.The preamble is long.It cycles from dreadfully boring to slightly interesting.But my curiosity is piqued.

Iíve learned that it is a compilation of several tales, and the result of several generations of retellings.And it doesnít refute the Biblical flood like so called scholars say it does.It refers to the annual flooding of the area. It isnít sacrilegious after all.
