Highly enjoyable storytelling…all the better BECAUSE of the added accents!!

I thoroughly enjoyed listening to this audiobook and I thought Stephen Fry’s narration was as usual captivating. But his addition of local British accents given to some of the characters in the book certainly adds to the depth and richness of the story.
I enjoyed them and thought they gave added colour to the stories and myths, after all, they aren’t supposed to be rigid. The mythic stories are meant to be interpreted and given meaning for the listener of the age.

Needless accents...

Ruined by needless local accents from the British Isles for every character... Makes listening to it at times unbearable.

Mythos was a lot more enjoyable and easy to listen to because of this.
