Publisher's 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.

I love fables, fairy tales, science fiction, fantasy, paranormal, etc... So, it only stands to reason I would love Greek Mythology. In years past I have picked up books on the subject, but they all seemed either dry or too complicated. The relationships between the Gods can be complicated and they have sex with their sisters, brothers and humans. They have lots of sex, so there is a lot of them that are related.

This book was an absolute joy to listen to. It was easy to understand and the stories were exciting. After listening, I went out and bought the paperback, so I can use it as a reference in the future, but don't just get the book. The reading of this is great.

I am not making a statement of any kind, but I do find the coincidence interesting. The Gods have sex with human women all the time and their are stories about half breeds and the Titians. In the NEW AMERICAN BIBLE: Genesis, Chapter 6, verse 4, it reads, THE NEPHILIM APPEARED IN THOSE DAYS AS WELL AS LATER, AFTER THE SONS OF GOD HAD INTERCOURSE WITH THE DAUGHTERS OF HUMAN BEINGS, WHO BORE THEM SONS. THEY WERE THE HEORES OF OLD, THE MEN OF RENOWN. Food for thought.

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.

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.

The tales of good and evil still bring warmth to this now 37 year old boy cum author. i remember reading the tales of the gods and greek mythology as a young boy and i believe helped shape the imagination i have.

This book gives me a chill and a satisfying feeling that transends back to those days as my eyes would hungrily read every tale and fable. This book has given me great delight to read and listen to via audible and the narrator gives the listener the tools required to let their minds and imagination step into its world and experience the myths for themselves.
