    Description

    Brought to you by Penguin.

    The number one best seller.

    An epic battle that lasted 10 years. A legendary story that has survived thousands.

    Troy. The most marvellous kingdom in all the world. The Jewel of the Aegean. Glittering Ilion, the city that rose and fell not once but twice....

    When Helen, the beautiful Greek queen, is kidnapped by the Trojan prince Paris, the most legendary war of all time begins.

    Listen in awe as a thousand ships are launched against the great city of Troy.

    Feel the fury of the battleground as the Trojans stand resolutely against Greek might for an entire decade.

    And witness the epic climax - the wooden horse, delivered to the city of Troy in a masterclass of deception by the Greeks....

    In Stephen Fry's exceptional retelling of our greatest story, Troy will transport you to the depths of ancient Greece and beyond.

    Trop bien...

    Comme les deux précédents opus. Façon originale et plaisante de rendre le guerre de Troie. J'attends sa version de l'Iliade maintenant.

    A Spoonful of Sugar Helps the Medicine Go Down

    I said that “a spoonful of sugar helps the medicine go down” in my review of one of the previous volumes. I felt it even more, here. Stephen Fry is a delight to listen to, and I doubt anyone could have done a better job with the story of the Trojan War and all the myths that accompany it. But I wasn’t impressed with the Odyssey and the Iliad in high school, and though 50+ years later I have come to appreciate many books that I didn’t enjoy so much in high school (Dickens, whom I now love, for example), this has not improved with (my) age. War for no good reason. Maybe no war has a really good reason, but this is totally absurd, and they know it. The gods on this side or that. On and on and on. So much hyperbole: the most beautiful, the most valuable, the most powerful. Eh. “Love” for the shallowest of reasons. There are books about war (War and Peace, Stalingrad are two of the best) that can evoke all the emotions and be real, presenting real characters who are developed with all the human flaws. At the every end, in his appendix, Fry says that these stories show all the human weaknesses: envy, pride, lust, etc. and no one has ever done it better than Homer. I beg to differ. I know that these stories are part of the canon and are part of our vocabulary and so I took my medicine. But I can think of so many modern great books that do it better: Les Miserables, A Tale of Two Cities, and so many other great works do it better. I imagine that Shakespeare fans would also think Shakespeare did it better. So, if you need to learn about the mythology of the Trojan War, maybe no one can do it better than Fry, but I am not a convert to appreciating the greatness of this ancient literature.

    Outstanding!!

    Would give 10 stars if possible.
    I’ve listened to Mythos and Hero’s several times and no doubt it will be the same for Troy!

    Hoping and praying he’ll cover the Odyssey next.

    Stephen Fry does it again. He manages to tell the confusing story of Troy in an interesting and engaging way, all accompanied by his beautiful voice.

    Stephem Fry dazzles the listener as usual

    I believe Stephen Fry would be nice to listen to even if he read the terms and conditions no one ever reads. He made the many different side storylines interesting enough and did not overly go into detail when not required.

    Fry and Homer 10/10

    Perfect, flawless, marvelous.
    Highly recommend this volume and his two preceding volumes of Mythos and Heroes.
    Can't wait for Fry to tackle the Odyssey.

    mythos, heroes and troy

    troy completes the trinity of mythos, heroes and troy by stephen fry.
    all 3 books embrace characters and events with greek mythology with such clarity, alacrity and reality.
    stephen fry’s narration of the 3 books breathes real life into mythical events and characters which may or may not have existed or occurred.
    i found the books highly informative, entertaining and valuable.
    i highly recommend them to those who have interest in greek mythology, who would like to start reading more deeply about the subject.

    Stephen fry delivers an entertaining narrative based on Homers engrossing tale. Is it history? Does it matter?

    Amazing depiction (and narration!) of the Trojan War

    Even though listening to Stephen Fry narrating the dictionary would be already entertaining, this is a masterpiece of writing, reading, interpreting and engaging. Stephen condensed the story of Troy, end to end, from several sources (specially Homer of course), and gives a compelling overview of the whole thing, plus some extra comments in the end about Homer, myth vs reality, etc. This was the first audio book I REALLY loved, and highly recommend.

    Amazing! Just it isn’t broken down by chapters well.

    The book is amazing and if you liked the two previous voyages into greek mythology you will love this. Very calming and enchanting. The reason for a star less is because it isn’t broken by chapters well. It has two giant chapters of 4 hours in the middle and even the other ones comprise a few so it’s a bit hard to orient yourself if you want to listen to something again. But that’s audibles fault and not Stephan Fry’s. No fault with him or his work. Brilliant as always.

    Third time- still great

    As always delightful and clever. love the greeks and love Stephen Fry even more who could make me enjoy Troy again even though I was never particularly fond of that specific story.
    Really great narative and fun to listen to.

    Was für ein großer Spaß!

    Die zwei ersten Hörbücher Frys zur griechischen Mythologie sind großartig, aber dieses schießt wirklich den Vogel ab! Eine unbedingte Hörempfehlung für jeden, der Heldensagen mag, Stephen Fry liebt und die griechische Mythologie faszinierend findet. Ich hoffe, die Odyssee folgt bald!

    a stellar performance !

    Stephen Fry brings history (if it is history which after listening to his mythos and heroes and troy I firmly believe!!!) to life! One sees it all, the gods, the humans, the interaction, the fun and the tragedies, the light and the shadows, one stands close by wanting to interfere, to help, to applaud, to mingle…..
    an outstanding performance and tour de force, blessed by the gods he so lovingly describes…..

    Storytelling at it's finest

    I love Stephen Fry's way of weaving in and out of related stories and how he always sprinkles in a little bit of etymology and humor. It is also wonderful to hear an interpretation where the characters are simply portrayed as humans with all their strengths and faults and moments of weaknesses. I cannot recommend this book enough.
