    Description

    Brought to you by Penguin. 

    Following the best-selling retellings of the Greek myths in Mythos and Heroes, Stephen Fry's bewitching third volume, Troy - concerning love and war, passion and power - is now ready for ordering.    

    The story of Troy speaks to all of us - the kidnapping of Helen, a queen celebrated for her beauty, sees the Greeks launch a thousand ships against the city of Troy, to which they will lay siege for 10 whole and very bloody years.  

    It is Zeus, the king of the gods, who triggers the war when he asks the Trojan prince Paris to judge the fairest goddess of them all. Aphrodite bribes Paris with the heart of Helen, wife of King Menelaus of the Greeks, and naturally, nature takes its course. 

    It is a terrible, brutal war with casualties on all sides as well as strained relations between allies. The Greek's most fearsome warrior, Achilles, argues with King Agamemnon, his commander, over another woman, the Trojan slave Briseis. The consequences lead to terrible tragedies.

    In Troy you will find heroism and hatred, love and loss, revenge and regret, desire and despair. It is these human passions, written bloodily in the sands of a distant shore, that still speak to us today.   

    It is a myth in which we seek the truth about ourselves and which Stephen Fry brings breathtakingly to life.

    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.

    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.

    Yet again

    Stephen Fry dazzles with knowledge and humor! Hoped the trilogy would never end! The color, life, history and myth - what a sight for sore eyes and ears

    Good old stories

    Having learnt about the old Greeks in primary school this book provides a perfect retelling of the stories refreshes my memories. Having listened to Mythos, Heroes and now Troy, I am waiting impatiently for the next book. That would be the Odyssey.

    Gripping and Great

    Stephen Fry does it again. Listened to all of his books. All amazing. Such a way with words. Particularly, in the way he keeps you listening. None of it gets too deep or loses you in names. Loved it. Thanks to Stephen and the production,editorial team involved. If you do another you shall have my coin sir.

    I loved this a lot. Amazing book, brilliantly retold, and fantastically read. I really hope he does one on the Odyssey as well!

    Stephen fry, you are a marvel.

    Following up on Stephen's previous books on the series, I am still drawn like a moth to a flame to his exquisite performance and storytelling. My already strong love for Greek history and myth only grow stronger. Thank you so much. I enjoyed every minute of it.

    Absolutely wonderful

    Just as the other two books in the series, Troy enchantes the reader. Perhaps even more so, as Stephen Fry's hipnotic voice retells a story that is so beautifully woven from both myth and history. Absolutely wonderful

    Fry does it again!

    One cannot have higher expectations when listening to Stephen Fry and Troy, given his very exciting Mythos and Heroes books. Mr. Fry delivers and exceeds the expectations set by his previous successes in my opinion. His delivery is bar none and his take on the mythology/history is truthful and, for someone that is truly knowledgeable on the subject, his opinion is very much appreciated. Highly recommended audiobook for everyone!

    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.

    Greek Narration at its best!

    Modern day Homer, Stephen Fry, tells the third and most dramatic part of his trilogy of ancient Greek mythology in his usual dramatic and entertaining way. A treat to read and listen to! Bravo maestro!

    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!

    episch

    Auch wenn man von der Komplexität und Vielzahl der Namen fast erschlagen wird, ist die Faszination dieser Götter- und archaischen Menschenwelt beeindruckend. Und Vieles lässt sich in der heutigen Welt wiederfinden.
