    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 !

    Excellent!

    However many liberties Fry takes while retelling these legends they should be all forgiven because he has a GIFT OF STORYTELLING. Fry is an opposite of Holywood: he takes great, old, dust-covered stories and makes them shine. One listens to hundred times retold adventures of Hēraklês or Theseus as if they were just being revealed. Worth every minute spent.

    Great story teller

    Writing this book has surely implied a huge research work. On top of this, Stephen Fry is a fantastic story teller. We had the impression to live beside those heroes. I recommend this book without hesitation.

    A real pleasure

    The writing as much as the reading have been so enjoyable. Thank you so much Stephen for putting out your literary and storytelling talents into the world. I look forward to hearing the third part.

    A Practically Perfect Book in Every Way

    There are few greater joys than hearing an old and beloved story told again in a new and powerful way. Stephen Fry's writing and performance make these anciant and well known myths both fresh and exciting.
    Even those I can recite by heart kept me wildly entertained.
    A truly wonderful book and audiobook.

    Wonderful

    Truly enjoyable, both the story and the narration are perfect. This book goes deeper and more detailed into ancient Greek stories than any other book I've ever read. Surely recommend to anyone interested in Greek mythology.

    Pure magic. Stephen Fry is transcendent.

    Both the story and narrative are excellent! It was a very special experience to revisit the ancient Greek universe. I wish Stephen Fry could have been my history teacher. And English teacher. And art teacher. And... well, you get the idea

    An engaging continuation of Mythos

    This book's subject is lives and deeds of Greek heroes. The narration is (as always) brilliant and the plot most engaging. Recommended to anyone struggling with original Greek sources on heroes but interested in Greek hero myths. The stories are spiced with humor and drama, but remain faithful to the original. Fry sometimes offers insight on how different types of heroes reflected changes in Greek society over time.

    An Exceptional Performance

    Stephen Fry’s telling of the quests and sometimes unfortunate adventures of Greek Heroes and Demi-gods is unlike any other in the category. Whilst not a comprehensive collection of scholarly work, these tales are filled with a brilliant balance between wit, humour and mythology, as well as a perfect performance from Fry himself.

    Helden: Monster und Sterbliche

    Helden: Monster und Sterbliche, Questen und Abenteuer

    Heroes ist das zweite Buch zur Klassische Mythologie von Stephen Fry. Das erste Teil hab ich geliebt und wann ich mitbekommen hab das es jetzt noch ein Teil gibt habe ich mich das sofort bei Audible das Hörbuch gekauft und das hat mich den schlaff letzte Nacht geraubt.

    In dieses Buch geht es um die Klassischen Helden Bellerophon, Theseus, Heracles, Perseus , Jason, Atalanta, Orpheus und Ödipus die alle Sterbliche sind (Keine Götter wie so manch einer im ersten Teil) und treffen auf die Monster die diese bekämpfen: die Hydras, der Sphinx, Harpyien , Gorgons, und der Minotaur.

    Beim ersten Teil hab ich Heracles/Hercules sehr vermisst, aber jetzt ist er dabei!

    Seine Vorlesung ist wie immer sehr schön, aber ich habe mich auch schon vor Jahren in seine stimme (und ein bisschen in Ihm) verliebt, bin da also nicht Objektiv. Er ist manchmal Ernst, manchmal Gelehrsam ohne zu irritieren und auch ab und zu mal richtig Camp.

    Das Ganze ist auch durchwachsen von Britischen Humor.

    Was unser einer auch noch mal klar gemacht wird ist wo Marvel die Superhelden herhat.

    Stephen Fry ist in Deutschland ziemlich unbekannt soweit mir bekannt, aber er ist weltberühmt in Groß Britannien als Komiker, Quizmaster, Schauspieler und als Schriftsteller. Er ist ein sehr beliebter Hörbuchvorleser, Seine Vorlesung von Harry Potter ist legendär und Hochgepriesen.
    Das erste teil
    [[ASIN:B077K1FYNY Mythos]]

    Ich hab inzwischen Erfahren das noch ein Teil 3 in produktion ist, Troja.

    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.

    Great Story & great narration

    In this audiobook, you learn more about the life of Herakles, Bellerophon, Atalanta, Oedipus, and Jason (I hope I forgot nobody.)
    Stephen Fry's narration lets you feel all the ups and highs the heroes are going through.
    More than once I hoped for a different ending because the heroes had to endure so much to get there.
    I like that Stephen Fry also shows some correlation to today's life and gives you something to think about.
    For me, it was an audiobook I couldn't stop listening to.

    There is just one thing I have to criticize: The chapters have no titles like in the audiobook Mythology. It would be great if the chapters would be at least named after the heroes.

    Gripping trip to mythical times

    Expectations were high after hearing "Mythos", but Stephen Fry managed again to keep my ear stuck to the audio book and never wanting to press the stop button. "His" stories are highly entertaining, instructive and gripping. They can be hilarious or terribly sad, depending on the plot. They're everything but boring and I am so grateful that Stephen Fry brought ancient myth down to us in such an easily abordable way. Stay on these roads, Mr. Fry, pleeease...

    There is nothing better than a good Fry

    I found myself struggling to remember all the names so I gave up trying and it didn't detract in anyway from the enjoyment of the stories. Stephen Fry is always a pleasure to listen to.

    Not as gripping as Mythos, but still great

    As always, Stephen Fry is a perfect storyteller. The stories themselves, however, were not quite as exciting as Mythos, but that might be because I knew them too well before listening to the book
