Discover Stephen Fry's magnificent retelling of the greatest myths and legends ever told . . .
No one loves and quarrels, desires and deceives as boldly or brilliantly as Greek gods and goddesses.
In Stephen Fry's vivid retelling, we gaze in wonder as wise Athena is born from the cracking open of the great head of Zeus and follow doomed Persephone into the dark and lonely realm of the Underworld.
Shiver in fear when Pandora opens her jar of evil torments.
Listen with joy as the legendary love affair between Eros and Psyche unfolds.
Read by Stephen Fry himself, Mythos captures these extraordinary myths for our modern age - in all their dazzling and deeply human relevance.
If you're enthralled by the magic of Greek mythology you'll love Fry's follow-up books HEROES and TROY, with tales of mortals and monsters, quests and adventures.
'Wit and erudition are impressively evident . . . Read by Fry with his accustomed ebullient showmanship [he] gives the legends modern resonance by telling them with a contemporary colloquial twist' -- AUDIOBOOK OF THE WEEK - The Sunday Times

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.
