Synopsis:

From the producers of America the Story of Us comes the epic tale of the rise of civilization. The 12-hour series spans the first flourishing of civilization in Mesopotamia through the discovery of America. Groundbreaking production techniques bring to life the greatest landmarks and milestones of human achievement. CGI rebuilds lost worlds; large scale reenactments replay critical battles; innovative use of interactive maps dynamically illustrates the key factors that gave rise to civilization across the globe. MANKIND: The Story of All of Us emphasizes the simultaneity of the human adventure — how ancient Egypt thrived while Stonehenge was being built; China was at its zenith while Europe was plunged into the Dark Ages. HISTORY captures the danger, action, struggle, heroism, and adrenaline of MANKIND: The Story of All of Us!

Hott Review:

This seemed more like a prelude to the series instead of a graphic novel/comic book series detailing it. It just felt unfinished.

  1. I loved your review. I am wondering if you would review a new release in October. It would be part of a book blog tour for award-winning author Diane Robinson and her series The Pen Pieyu Adventures. Book 2 is called Princess Petra’s Talent and can stand alone if you’ve not read book 1 Sir Princess Petra. If you would email me I can tell you more. I really hope to hear from you as I really like this site and the reviews. Thanks – Sue Morris
