APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
We’ve always loved Stephen Fry’s audiobook narrations and, like its predecessor Mythos, Heroes radiates the writer/actor’s passion for ancient Greek mythology. Having covered the Olympian gods in Mythos, Fry moves on to mortal heroes. Retaining all the original intrigue and humanity, his imaginative retellings prove these ancient figures aren’t as far removed from current-day heroes as we might think. Does a boy with an absent father and overwhelming sense of being special sound familiar? “You’re a wizard, Harry,” Fry chortles in his compelling tale of Theseus, the original chosen one. He also gives his characters rather amusing accents, most memorably a Yorkshire twang for Perseus. Exploring the divine and the doomed, this audiobook delivers ancient myths read by a modern legend.
