Description

Having sold millions of copies in print, Bernard Evslin’s classic retelling of the Greek myths captures the excitement and enchantment of these stories that have influenced many of today’s popular films and novels. Easy to understand and fun to read for both adults and children, it is no wonder this book has been taught in schools all over the world. Evslin introduces listeners to the wondrous and terrifying world of superhuman beings, such as Medusa and the Minotaur, and the glory of gods like Zeus, Athena, and Poseidon - brought magically to life through heroes such as Perseus, Daedalus, Prometheus, and others.

Wonderful, Wonderful!

What more can be said of the wild tales and lessons of Greek mythology? Always exciting and these stories never grow old. Look to the sky to see Cassiopius and the sea for Aphrodite. A great book for family vacations or just summer amusement.

Mystical Myths

I always have been so intrigued by Greek mythology and wanted to learn more about it. This audio is perfect anyone who is being introduced to the myths, or wanting to learn more. It really gives so much explanation of how the tree is structured. The narrator truly gave life to each word, each tale. This is a book that must be read and or listened to.

I was very pleased with this audible book. the narrator did a wonderful job. I do wish that the story of Hercules was included. Other than that I was quite entertained throughout the entire book

you won't find a better narrator,.

you won't find a better narrator, great story teller, loved that the writer is also a geek scholar, the closest you will get from the source.

Allegorical Gold

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Absolutely, this is one of my favorite, no-nonsense write ups about the original Greek Mythological Stories.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Heroes, Gods and Monsters of the Greek Myths?

The last 'About the Author' part, where he describes the constant inter family tension being the entire reason for the diverse tales.

Which character – as performed by Todd Haberkorn – was your favorite?

Hermes. No doubt.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Not really. It's better in chunks, while driving, or on lunch. There is no large portions of continuity between tales, but the stories themselves almost need to be listened in one sitting.

Any additional comments?

Absolutely great performance, and great stories. Wish there were a thousand more of these.
