  • Let me start off by saying that I really enjoyed Mythos, but the second instalment is bitterly disappointing Greek mythology is full of so many strange stories and strange people It s so rich and wonderful and I really do love reading about it, but it needs detail Stephen Fry has attempted to make Ancient Greek heroes accessible to readers unfamiliar with them, though all the stories are very, very, brief and it s their downfall Hercales, Perseus and Jason are perhaps the best known of the h Let [...]


  • My second Stephen Fry mythology book in as many days I just read Mythos and loved that and once again it gets 5 s leading me to think maybe I should try some of Fry s other books out I don t want to say too much about this other than that it continues where the first book Mythos leaves off and we move from looking at the Gods themselves to looking at the Heroes and Demi gods and offspring of Gods who are still remembered today Stories such as the minataur, Hercules and These are a My second Step [...]


  • When I was a child my favourite movie was Clash of the Titans the 1981 film with Maggie Smith as Athena and Laurence Olivier as Zeus Medusa was, and is, the scariest monster I have ever seen on TV and I regularly had to leave my light on when I went to sleep because I thought she was going to come and slither up the stairs and turn me to stone Anyway, from a young age I ve had a healthy obsession with Greek Mythology and I ve read many, many books on the subject My favourite story still to When [...]


  • Ancient Myths from a Modern Legend This is an audiobook that I simply can t recommend enough One of British entertainment s legends in Stephen Fry dusts off these ancient tales and breathes a contemporary form of life and colour into them in his own unique style It s a mixture of description, a little conjecture and of course the lion s share being taken by these grand old tales themselves They take front and center stage and while Fry cleverly interweaves background and information it never Anc [...]


  • To make a long story of cheap soap opera esque characters who happen to be ancient heroes and gods in Fry s world short, this is an unforgivably mediocre piece of prose.


  • Stephen Fry is always a delight to read and listen to and, if I m being honest, I think I enjoyed this one than Mythos which was also a 5 star for me, so this one gets an imaginary, but loving Fry has a way of making these heroes sound not only very human, but also quite contemporary, and his passion for Greek mythology radiates from every page, so you can forgive his pedantic digressions I was actually anticipating even of them.I might be repeating myself, but Fry is an amazi Stephen Fry is alw [...]


  • DNF 20% does not compare to the first one in the slightest too many details of no importance, jokes seem forced Don t know what happen Maybe I was not in the right mood I doubt it tho Anyway, huge disappointment
