    I don't know about any of you, but this one's a winner. Far from feeling like another dry recounting of a number of our favorite Greek myths, Fry's down-to-earth humor and traditional (modern) storytelling have turned these gods into something most relatable. I've read Edith Hamilto...

    The most fun and entertaining book I've read in a very long time. Loved it. ...

    I first heard of Stephen Fry many years ago, have since watched him debate with the Church and wander through dense jungles trying to find nearly extinct animals, listened to him bring one of my favourite magical worlds to life, and learned a great deal from him on what must be one of ...

    The history of greek mythology told in a long long story. This is the audio book and it was a challenge to finish, but interesting nonetheless. Stephen Fry is faultless in his narration. ...

    3.5 stars I love fantasy and mythical tales and I adore Stephen Fry (who's audio narration was pitch perfect). I have also always wanted to read / understand the different Greek myths, and this seemed the perfect opportunity. I found it very interesting to learn the relationship ...

    I must have been around 8 when I first read The Legends of the Olympus and fell in love with Greek mythology. I reread it at least 3 times afterwards and remains one of my favorite books to this very day. Stephen Fry?s retelling of these myths are just as good as the original, if ...

    It is regrettable that Stephen Fry's talent to be effortlessly snobbish in a very appealing, charmingly British way, does absolutely no good to the subject of his book. The main problem with this book is that Fry's retelling of the myths of Ancient Greece is exactly what the title prom...

    At a time when other children had their mothers reading "Sleeping Beauty" and "Little Red Riding Hood" to them, my father was telling me the story of the abduction of Persephone with his own adornments (I particularly liked the squirrels wondering why she was picking flowers instead of...

    I love Greek Mythology or any mythology at that. This is a great collection of retellings but in Frys perfect storytelling mixed with his intellect and wit. If you enjoyed Gaimans Norse novel this will be 100% your thing. Has a little more depth to it than Gaimans and some personal tou...

    Not everyone's into mythology but I am and I freakin' loved this. Fry's fantastic retellings unpeeled layers of stories I already knew, and his humor made them super readable, approachable and hilarious. One million Olympic stars, and "Arch Psychopomp" is now my preferred title. ...

    I loved Mythos, and Fry?s narration was superb. What makes it different from all the other Greek/Roman mythology books that I have collected over the years is the coherent chronology that Fry has achieved. By placing all the stories in context and in a timeline, the personalities and...

    This was by far the easiest 5 stars I have had the pleasure to give in quite a while. It is one of the very few books I would read again. Mythos is fascinating from start to finish. I have attempted to get into numerous mythology books before (yes even Edith Hamilton) and struggled....

    What an absolute cracker of a book! I love mythology. Especially Greek. AND I love Stephen Fry. This is a great combination as an audiobook. Narrated in Stephen Fry's crisp British accent (my favourite accent in the whole world) and with typical British humour and asides thrown in, ...

    Such a brilliant book in every way. Was very disappointed when I got to the end, I wanted there to be more! ...

    Once again, a BIG FAT THANK YOU to my awesome friend Bubu who send me this book via audible. THANK YOU!!! <3 Anyways. From the foreword: Mythos begins at the beginning, but it does not end at the end. Had I included heroes like Oedipus, Perseus, Theseus, Jason and Herakles ...

    Greek mythology, in itself, doesn't lack any entertainment and stories to be told. This book will be a memorable collection of Greek myths. Stephen Fry sticks to the popular myths and I didn't encounter one I hadn't heard before. However, he tells it with a certain charm and humor that...

    A fantastic retelling of myths with lots of humour and tongue-in-cheek moments. Stephen Fry narrates even the most tragic of tales with warmth and insightful asides. I think this is the way to get acquainted with Greek mythology - just the info you get about greek roots in English voca...

    I like the stories, I was surprised at how many of them I already knew. But I wish Stephen had been a bit less heavy handed with his learning and just given us the stories. I would have preferred less footnotes, they become distracting and the stories could have flowed better. ...

    We all know at least some of the Greek stories but not necessarily how they tie together ; this book is Valuable for a solid and accessible chronology and for showing how these tales have given us our science language and much of our popular culture - I didn?t know that Pandora was v...

    This was most certainly one of the most enjoyable books I have had the opportunity to read. I?ve known the Greek myths so well, like the back of my hand, as I grew up in the country that had those myths as their regular fairy-tales. At school I was told the stories of the petty Gre...

    Greek mythology and Stephen Fry, a match made in heaven. There have been so many collections of Greek myths in the past and perhaps for those who are well versed with it won't get too much from this. Personally I knew bits and pieces, some of the more major stories and ones I'd lear...

    At a time when other children had their mothers reading "Sleeping Beauty" and "Little Red Riding Hood" to them, my father was telling me the story of the abduction of Persephone with his own adornments (I particularly liked the squirrels wondering why she was picking flowers instead of...

    I love Greek Mythology or any mythology at that. This is a great collection of retellings but in Frys perfect storytelling mixed with his intellect and wit. If you enjoyed Gaimans Norse novel this will be 100% your thing. Has a little more depth to it than Gaimans and some personal tou...

    Not everyone's into mythology but I am and I freakin' loved this. Fry's fantastic retellings unpeeled layers of stories I already knew, and his humor made them super readable, approachable and hilarious. One million Olympic stars, and "Arch Psychopomp" is now my preferred title. ...

    I loved Mythos, and Fry?s narration was superb. What makes it different from all the other Greek/Roman mythology books that I have collected over the years is the coherent chronology that Fry has achieved. By placing all the stories in context and in a timeline, the personalities and...

    This was by far the easiest 5 stars I have had the pleasure to give in quite a while. It is one of the very few books I would read again. Mythos is fascinating from start to finish. I have attempted to get into numerous mythology books before (yes even Edith Hamilton) and struggled....

    Greek mythology, in itself, doesn't lack any entertainment and stories to be told. This book will be a memorable collection of Greek myths. Stephen Fry sticks to the popular myths and I didn't encounter one I hadn't heard before. However, he tells it with a certain charm and humor that...

    Greek mythology, in itself, doesn't lack any entertainment and stories to be told. This book will be a memorable collection of Greek myths. Stephen Fry sticks to the popular myths and I didn't encounter one I hadn't heard before. However, he tells it with a certain charm and humor that...

    A fantastic retelling of myths with lots of humour and tongue-in-cheek moments. Stephen Fry narrates even the most tragic of tales with warmth and insightful asides. I think this is the way to get acquainted with Greek mythology - just the info you get about greek roots in English voca...

    I like the stories, I was surprised at how many of them I already knew. But I wish Stephen had been a bit less heavy handed with his learning and just given us the stories. I would have preferred less footnotes, they become distracting and the stories could have flowed better. ...

    Brilliant retelling of the ancient myths. Love the footnotes explaining how the names of the deities survive in our everyday language. Would love a sequel with the adventures of the demigods and heroes like Herakles, Odysseus, .... ...

    I don?t think I would?ve enjoyed this NEARLY as much if I?d simply read it. Listening to Stephen Fry?s narration was what really made this book shine, with his wry sense of humour, commentary and brilliant characterisation. I?ve always been a big fan of Greek mythology and th...

    The absolutely excellent Stephen Fry has done it again ladies and gentlemen! Having never studied Classics and knowing very little about Greek Mythology (aside what Disney?s Hercules taught me) I was excited to pick this book up and give it a go. It?s something i?m so interest...

    This was a great retelling of these tales from Greek Mythology in a nice readable format, with minimal academic distraction (footnotes sometime excepting). The humorous asides and some of the modern culturally colloquial context used made an otherwise scarily remote (ancient even) set...

    I don't know about any of you, but this one's a winner. Far from feeling like another dry recounting of a number of our favorite Greek myths, Fry's down-to-earth humor and traditional (modern) storytelling have turned these gods into something most relatable. I've read Edith Hamilto...

    What an absolute cracker of a book! I love mythology. Especially Greek. AND I love Stephen Fry. This is a great combination as an audiobook. Narrated in Stephen Fry's crisp British accent (my favourite accent in the whole world) and with typical British humour and asides thrown in, ...

    Such a brilliant book in every way. Was very disappointed when I got to the end, I wanted there to be more! ...

    Once again, a BIG FAT THANK YOU to my awesome friend Bubu who send me this book via audible. THANK YOU!!! <3 Anyways. From the foreword: Mythos begins at the beginning, but it does not end at the end. Had I included heroes like Oedipus, Perseus, Theseus, Jason and Herakles ...

    This is so exciting! Greek mythology AND Stephen Fry?!? If only it were possible to pre-order, but it looks like the release is coming in early November. Woohoo! Edit: It's available to pre-order in the UK from a few sources, for Nov 2 release, but still nothing in the US. If anyone...

    What a charming recounting of many of the most notable episodes in Greek Mythology! If you get the chance, opt for the audiobook version narrated by the author as his wit and charm come through in spades and it truly enriches the experience. One can hope for a sequel that delves...

    I don't know about any of you, but this one's a winner. Far from feeling like another dry recounting of a number of our favorite Greek myths, Fry's down-to-earth humor and traditional (modern) storytelling have turned these gods into something most relatable. I've read Edith Hamilto...

    I must have been around 8 when I first read The Legends of the Olympus and fell in love with Greek mythology. I reread it at least 3 times afterwards and remains one of my favorite books to this very day. Stephen Fry?s retelling of these myths are just as good as the original, if ...

    It is regrettable that Stephen Fry's talent to be effortlessly snobbish in a very appealing, charmingly British way, does absolutely no good to the subject of his book. The main problem with this book is that Fry's retelling of the myths of Ancient Greece is exactly what the title prom...

    I love Greek Mythology or any mythology at that. This is a great collection of retellings but in Frys perfect storytelling mixed with his intellect and wit. If you enjoyed Gaimans Norse novel this will be 100% your thing. Has a little more depth to it than Gaimans and some personal tou...

    Not everyone's into mythology but I am and I freakin' loved this. Fry's fantastic retellings unpeeled layers of stories I already knew, and his humor made them super readable, approachable and hilarious. One million Olympic stars, and "Arch Psychopomp" is now my preferred title. ...

    Greek mythology, in itself, doesn't lack any entertainment and stories to be told. This book will be a memorable collection of Greek myths. Stephen Fry sticks to the popular myths and I didn't encounter one I hadn't heard before. However, he tells it with a certain charm and humor that...

    A fantastic retelling of myths with lots of humour and tongue-in-cheek moments. Stephen Fry narrates even the most tragic of tales with warmth and insightful asides. I think this is the way to get acquainted with Greek mythology - just the info you get about greek roots in English voca...

    I like the stories, I was surprised at how many of them I already knew. But I wish Stephen had been a bit less heavy handed with his learning and just given us the stories. I would have preferred less footnotes, they become distracting and the stories could have flowed better. ...

    Brilliant retelling of the ancient myths. Love the footnotes explaining how the names of the deities survive in our everyday language. Would love a sequel with the adventures of the demigods and heroes like Herakles, Odysseus, .... ...

    I don?t think I would?ve enjoyed this NEARLY as much if I?d simply read it. Listening to Stephen Fry?s narration was what really made this book shine, with his wry sense of humour, commentary and brilliant characterisation. I?ve always been a big fan of Greek mythology and th...

    The absolutely excellent Stephen Fry has done it again ladies and gentlemen! Having never studied Classics and knowing very little about Greek Mythology (aside what Disney?s Hercules taught me) I was excited to pick this book up and give it a go. It?s something i?m so interest...

    This was a great retelling of these tales from Greek Mythology in a nice readable format, with minimal academic distraction (footnotes sometime excepting). The humorous asides and some of the modern culturally colloquial context used made an otherwise scarily remote (ancient even) set...

    We all know at least some of the Greek stories but not necessarily how they tie together ; this book is Valuable for a solid and accessible chronology and for showing how these tales have given us our science language and much of our popular culture - I didn?t know that Pandora was v...
