Description

The most powerful men in the world were all together in a circle in the middle of the room. Drawing their daggers, they cut their right hands and, above the pile of gold, swore Odysseus’ vow: Helen could marry whom she liked, and the Princes would defend them both…. Everyone’s heard of the wooden horse of Troy, and of the beauty of Helen. Well this is the story as Odysseus saw it, from his boyhood in Ithaca to his participation in the bloody Trojan war itself.

Odd sort of update

I love Tony Robinson and wanted to love this.
I didn't hate it, but I thought that given the number of changes and updates he made to the story to make it relatable he might have made Helen's character less shallow. Honestly he depicts her eating in every mention. That's comedy I suppose... I don't think I'll share it with my kids, not a great interpretation of a fantastic story.

An old favourite

If you could sum up Odysseus: The Greatest Hero of them All in three words, what would they be?

Great story for children and adults alike! A classic.

What does Tony Robinson bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Tony Robinson is one of my favourite narrators, up there with Steven Fry and the greats.

New Take on an Old Classic

It was just wonderful to listen to Tony Robinson spin this yarn with a more modern slant.He must have left his script at home, knew the basic storyline and decided to tell us the story anyway. I couldn't turn it off.

Still loving it!

I remember borrowing this as a cassette tape from my local library when I was a kid. It was so enjoyable back then and it is just as great now. It gave me my first interest in Greek mythology. I really recommend it for parents wishing to give a child an educational and entertaining story. The authors are really creative in this re-telling of the fall of Troy and Tony Robinson does a fantastic job of making the story both funny and meaningful.
