Review

This is a spirited retelling of stories that Fry clearly knows and loves (The Times)

Assured and engaging. The pace is lively, the jokes are genuinely funny, and Fry once again proves himself a master of great learning worn lightly (Guardian)

Here, indeed, be monsters, myriad adventures and machinating gods. Fry is a personable and passionate narrator (Mail on Sunday)

Just as delightful and difficult to put down as the first. Heroes makes the stories relatable without skimping on the gory details, or sacrificing the truths of the myth. It's rich, it's funny and you'll feel like you've learned a lot (Herald)

Fry brilliantly retells the dramatic, funny, tragic and timeless tales of these heroic men and women in all their grit and glory. Filled with white-knuckle chases and twisted labyrinths, impossible puzzles and blood-curdling monsters (Northern Ireland Homes & Lifestyle)

Just as delightful and difficult to put down as the first. It makes stories relatable without skimping on the gory details (Sunday Life)

Rich, funny and you'll feel like you've learned a lot along the way (Eastern Daily Press)

Tales of fatal flaws, perilous journeys and shining acts of heroism are told with gusto and young and old will be engrossed. The audiobook is an absolute gem too, read by the author who has a winning way of bringing these epic tales to life (Western Morning News)

Joyfully informal yet full of the literary legacy. The Greek gods of the past become relatable (Guardian (on 'Mythos'))

The best thing he's written since his superb first novel . . . entertaining and edifying (Telegraph (on 'Mythos'))

Book Description

The dazzling companion volume to the bestselling Mythos. There are heroes - and then there are Greek heroes.
