Description

Shortlisted for best audiobook in the Specsavers National Book Awards 2018.    

Penguin presents the audiobook edition of Heroes, written and read by Stephen Fry.

There are heroes - and then there are Greek heroes. Few mere mortals have ever embarked on such bold and heart-stirring adventures, overcome myriad monstrous perils or outwitted scheming vengeful gods quite as stylishly and triumphantly as Greek heroes. 

In this companion to his best-selling Mythos, Stephen Fry brilliantly retells these dramatic, funny, tragic and timeless tales. Join Jason aboard the Argo as he quests for the Golden Fleece. See Atalanta - who was raised by bears - outrun any man before being tricked with golden apples. Witness wily Oedipus solve the riddle of the Sphinx, and discover how Bellerophon captures the winged horse Pegasus to help him slay the monster Chimera.  

Heroes is the story of what we mortals are truly capable of - at our worst and our very best.

La "suite" est aussi bien que "Mythos"...

Je connais toujours les histoires mais ça me rappelle mes lectures d'antan et c'est toujours aussi bien raconté. L'histoire de Persée est vraiment à pleurer de rire, les autres mythes ne sont pas aussi comiques mais il y a des touches d'humour de temps en temps (Oedipe et le Sphinx, par exemple). Bref, si jamais Stephen Fry pouvait continuer avec l'Iliade et l'Odyssée, ce serait fantastique !

Brilliant

Once again, Stephen Fry brings us a collection of stories, along with some interesting facts and food for thought. I recommend this, along with Mythos.

Greek heroes didn't come from Maltby

Totally unlistenable to thanks to Fry, surprisingly, deciding to ham it up and ascribe British regional accents as his leitmotif attempt. Perseus sounds like a comedy sketch extra from Last Of The Summer Wine. Avoid at all costs.
