Publisher's Summary

Gods and heroes are brought to life in this masterly retelling of the legends and tales of ancient Greece. Here are the great stories of the Heroic Age, from the myths of the making of the universe to the death of Heracles. Set against the colorful background of Greece and the Aegean, the adventures of heroes such as Perseus the Gorgon-slayer, Dionysus, Theseus, and Jason and the Argonauts once again come to life. In this skillful retelling, these tales are as vivid and exciting as when they were first told 3,000 years ago. The story of ancient Greece is continued in The Tale of Troy.

Interesting stories, but listen to the preview

This book is interesting and clearly narrated, however an issue that I have found with the book is the American accent. No fault of the narrator himself, however small differences between British English and American English made it difficult for me personally to get into this without every now and then finding myself irritated by certain pronunciations, such as pronouncing herbs, erbs.
