Absolutely fun!
The Egyptian priests win the tall tale award.

Herodotus may be the father of the study of history, but he's first and foremost a story teller.

Yes, this work is long. And at times Herodotus verge on the verbose, but I found his work (and this translation in particular) to be thoroughly enjoyable. He can spin you a yarn of a tale.

This is a classic that you will actually enjoy reading.
