    Incredibly captivating history subjects for a book but equally incredibly disappointing content and ESPECIALLY narration. The book is introduced in a spectacular way just to find out later that it is the summary of the summary of that paragraph you read in that magazine a long time ago. Not to mention the narrator who is exactly like the voice from Google Translate reciting to you. The pronunciation is beeeeeeyond agonazing like the whole production if I'm being completely honest.

I had high hopes for this one and even more that it was an Amazon Original.

    A good read for anyone looking to educate themselves on Mayan, Aztec, or Incan history. It reads a bit like a history textbook, but a very interesting textbook that is careful to be easy and quick to read.

    A very good gentle introduction to Maya, Aztec and Inca civilisation. The narrative is very dry and to the point, almost like we are reading summary. However, very useful information presented in the book, just enough to crave for more.

    Decent read This trilogy of books provides you with a concise summary of the history of the maya, Aztec, and Inca empires. It is a quick but very informative read that I would recommend to anyone interested in history.

    Great primer. If you are interested in the old empires of America before Columbus arrived (and their downfalls once he did,) then this is not a bad place to start.

    Meh Lots of references at the end of each section but the book reads like a Discovery Channel show. Lots of loosely related material but not deep enough to be interesting

    Disfruté mucho este conjunto de libros. Nunca antes había leído un libro en español y no sabía mucho sobre los mexicas, los mayas o los incas y ahora he leído los tres y sé mucho más. Con la función de tarjetas de vocabulario en Amazon Kindle pude identificar las más de 2,000 palabras en español que no sabía antes y aprenderlas. Con los enlaces automáticos a Wikipedia en Kindle pude profundizar en temas que eran interesantes, como en las listas de lugares para conocerlos mejor.

Con los enlaces automáticos a Wikipedia en Kindle pude profundizar en temas que eran interesantes, como en las listas de lugares para conocerlos mejor. Los libros tenían recetas interesantes y probé una en la cocina y me gustó mucho. Los libros mostraban cómo saber mi cumpleaños usando un calendario maya. Hubo un recorrido por Tenochtitlan, ya que existía, que fue súper genial, y conocí el panteón mexica que nunca antes había conocido. Además, los libros me interesaron en aprender náhuatl, así que estoy a un cuarto de camino de otro libro sobre eso. Así que hice un recorrido por un museo en México en realidad virtual hace unos días y cuando tenían algo de náhuatl en las tarjetas de explicación de las exhibiciones, ya sabía esas palabras además de poder leer el español en ellas ahora. Así que leer estos libros ha sido una gran experiencia y una importante para cambiar mi vida al saber más sobre español, náhuatl y las Américas.
