Editor reviews

The intriguing myth of a hero - son of the great Greek god Zeus, who lived a life of hardship, tragedy, triumph, and joy - is encapsulated for young audiences in this retelling of his 12 greatest feats of courage and strength. The veteran actor Benjamin Soames ably encourages celebration of Hercules’ great feats, while also modifying his performance so as to provide listeners comfort as they identify with the hero’s shame and fear at the tragic moments of a life equally blessed and cursed by gods. This single is from the original audiobook, Tales from the Greek Legends.

Summary

This is a story from the Tales from the Greek Legends collection.
The great myths of Ancient Greece have inspired mankind for centuries. Each of the heroes has to undergo trials of strength and courage to prove his valor against a host of monsters - the Minotaur, half man, half bull; Hydra, the many-headed serpent; Medusa the Gorgon. Meanwhile, the gods, lead by Zeus the Thunderer from his seat on Mount Olympus, watch, encourage, help - and sometimes hinder. In this new retelling, the tales come alive more vividly than ever with the added drama of popular music by Holst, Wagner, and others.
