Listen to Gilgamesh

This post says, Akkadian is an alphabet not a language, but Akkadian has been reconstructed here, to read the epic whihc I have been told is the greatest story of all time. It sounds amazing – if it reminds me of anything it would be some Pacific island, or Maori though it has the gutterals of the middle east. What do you think?
