Product description

Review

The Greek myths are told to you here by the ever-soothing voice of Stephen Fry, who takes you from Zeus to Athena with his typical humour. The Greek gods of the past become relatable as pop culture, modern literature and music are woven throughout. It is joyfully informal yet full of the literary legacy threaded through so much of the tapestry of contemporary GreeceThe Guardian

Wit and erudition are impressively evident . . . Read by Fry with his accustomed ebullient showmanship [he] gives the legends modern resonance by telling them with a contemporary colloquial twist' -- AUDIOBOOK of the WEEK ― The Times

Mythos is the best thing he's written since his superb first novel . . . it is entertaining and edifying - one cannot really ask for more than thatThe Telegraph

Fry's lively writing certainly conveys his lifelong passion for Greek myths . . . It's a rollicking good readThe Independent

Fry
reimagines the Greek myths with wit, warmth and humanity, bringing them into the modern age. A welcome addition to any bookshelf ― Book Bag

Mythos is Stephen's vivid retelling of the Greek myths. Bringing to life the Gods, monsters and mortals of Ancient Greece, he reimagines their astonishing stories for the modern world.Express and Star

Perfect for the 21st Century. Ebullient, funny, Fry retells the Greek myths with elegance The Times

A wondrous new immersion in ancient stories we only thought weknew. Page to page, Mythos is brilliant, funny, erudite, inventive, surprising and enthralling -- Richard North Patterson ― -

[Fry] exhibits prodigious learning, a great facility with words, and enormous erudition and enthusiasm Mail on Sunday

Lively, humorous and intimate, this retelling has real charm The Guardian

Fry takes us from
Zeus to Athena with humour. The Greek gods of the past become relatable as pop culture, modern literature and music are woven throughout. Joyfully informal yet full of the literary legacyGuardian

Fresh revivals of the myths of ancient Greece. In his own imitable style, Fry takes an erudite look at the doings of gods, goddesses, kings, queens and ordinary mortalsThe Bay

I quite like
Mythos, Stephen Fry's book on the Greek myths - he makes them amusing. I like people that illuminate the past with humour -- Jools Holland

Mythos has the gripping nature that one would hope for from a modern blockbuster. Filled with a sharp and delightful sense of humour, Stephen Fry's many witticisms making it an even more enjoyable read. I would recommend it for so many reasonsThe National

Brilliant . . . Stephen Fry's writing style makes it appealing to all. There's something for everyoneThe Herald

Reimagines the lives of ancient Greek gods and goddesses through a humorous lens, using casual language and making valuable comparisons to modern characters or events. It's also just really, really funnyAmerican Express Essentials

From the Back Cover

The Greek myths are the greatest stories ever told, passed down through millennia and inspiring writers and artists as varied as Shakespeare, Michelangelo, James Joyce and Walt Disney.

They are embedded deeply in the traditions, tales and cultural DNA of the West. In Stephen Fry's hands the stories of the titans and gods become a brilliantly entertaining account of ribaldry and revelry, warfare and worship, debauchery, love affairs and life lessons, slayings and suicides, triumphs and tragedies.

4.0 out of 5 stars Myths Busted !!!
By Cj81 on 8 February 2019
Okay so being a massive fan of Greek mythology and the like this caught my eye on here on my recommendations home page so I purchased and wasn't disappointed. Although not very over the top exciting I just couldn't put it down reading the exploits of Zeus and His wife Hera. Stephen Fry is very eloquent with his wording as the man's posh himself. Haha. A canny read so give it a go. Each to their own opinion and the world won't end if you don't like it. 😊
