The Greek myths are amongst 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. You'll fall in love with Zeus, marvel at the birth of Athena, wince at Cronus and Gaia's revenge on Ouranos, weep with King Midas and hunt with the beautiful and ferocious Artemis.

this was my first audiobook and I loved it! Stephen Fry's language is amazing and so is his narration. The myths are described in vivid detail. I had to look up many of the places and people described here. there were many 'aha!' moments while listening to this book, especially when he talks about the origins of words that we use regularly such as the word "petrified". I'm really looking forward to listening to heroes
