Really excellent material and good lectures from John mcwohrter. He makes all the lectures very interesting. As a South Indian I was very happy that he has a separate lecture only for Dravidian languages.

Neil Gaiman has definitely tasted Kvasir's mead

An absolutely brilliant piece of work by Neil Gaiman!
This audiobook weaves together the stories of all the characters of Norse mythology that we love. The events are tied together very well and I never got bored anywhere in this book. The stories written so well and I couldn't help but be impressed with Neil Gaiman's language.
Neil Gaiman's narration was as good or better than his writing. The expressions in his voice matched those of his stories perfectly.
An absolute delight to listen to.

Better than Mythos!

I loved this book! Stephen Fry has done an amazing job, not just with the writing, but with the narration as well!
He is such a great storyteller. Another thing that I found enjoyable in this book is how Stephen Fry spiced the book with so many small facts and tit bits of information about these stories. I kept looking at the world map, whenever he mentioned seas and cities that I hadn't heard of before. I have to say, this book has improved my geography as well. Now I know why the agean sea is called the agean, why the Atlas mountains are called that and much more...
An extremely enjoyable listen. I can't wait to get my hands on the third book!

The muses would be proud!

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
