Summary

Having sold millions of copies in print, Bernard Evslin’s classic retelling of the Greek myths captures the excitement and enchantment of these stories that have influenced many of today’s popular films and novels. Easy to understand and fun to read for both adults and children, it is no wonder this book has been taught in schools all over the world. Evslin introduces listeners to the wondrous and terrifying world of superhuman beings, such as Medusa and the Minotaur, and the glory of gods like Zeus, Athena, and Poseidon - brought magically to life through heroes such as Perseus, Daedalus, Prometheus, and others.

Certainly the best of its kind I have seen

This audio book is well written, well delivered clear and succinct. It tells you all the stories you wanted to hear without any other fluff. It manages to deliver a lot of information in very little time with practically no decorative language, but it's so clearly written that this is not overwhelming. Highly recommended.

Mystical Myths

I always have been so intrigued by Greek mythology and wanted to learn more about it. This audio is perfect anyone who is being introduced to the myths, or wanting to learn more. It really gives so much explanation of how the tree is structured. The narrator truly gave life to each word, each tale. This is a book that must be read and or listened to.

Feels like a bedtime story

What did you love best about Heroes, Gods and Monsters of the Greek Myths?

Good overview. It was my first book on Greek Mythology and I felt like a child being read to.
