Review

The Greek myths are told to you here by the ever-soothing voice of Stephen Fry, who takes you from Zeus to Athena with his typical humour. The Greek gods of the past become relatable as pop culture, modern literature and music are woven throughout. It is joyfully informal yet full of the literary legacy threaded through so much of the tapestry of contemporary Greece (The Guardian)

Wit and erudition are impressively evident . . . Read by Fry with his accustomed ebullient showmanship [he] gives the legends modern resonance by telling them with a contemporary colloquial twist' (AUDIOBOOK of the WEEK The Times)

Mythos is the best thing he's written since his superb first novel . . . it is entertaining and edifying - one cannot really ask for more than that (The Telegraph)

Fry's lively writing certainly conveys his lifelong passion for Greek myths . . . It's a rollicking good read (The Independent)

Fry reimagines the Greek myths with wit, warmth and humanity, bringing them into the modern age. A welcome addition to any bookshelf (Book Bag)

Mythos is Stephen's vivid retelling of the Greek myths. Bringing to life the Gods, monsters and mortals of Ancient Greece, he reimagines their astonishing stories for the modern world. (Express and Star)

Perfect for the 21st Century. Ebullient, funny, Fry retells the Greek myths with elegance (The Times)

A wondrous new immersion in ancient stories we only thought weknew. Page to page, Mythos is brilliant, funny, erudite, inventive, surprising and enthralling (Richard North Patterson -)

[Fry] exhibits prodigious learning, a great facility with words, and enormous erudition and enthusiasm (Mail on Sunday)

Lively, humorous and intimate, this retelling has real charm (The Guardian)
