APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
With his warm, reassuring tones, Stephen Fry always makes great company as the voice of an audiobook. Fry’s own Mythos recasts ancient Greek myths in modern times. His enthusiasm for the subject matter makes him the perfect narrator, and his droll delivery emphasises the sharp wit of his words. The book turns imposing classical texts into easily digested tales full of down-to-earth wisdom about our own lives—you’ll reach the end feeling thoroughly entertained and a little bit smarter.
A truly magnificent book read by an incredibly talented author that keeps you spellbound throughout. I have no hesitation recommending this book.
Really good if you want to learn about greek myths and it also has great narration
