This is pure fantasy and for 1959 was a pure sex fantasy for the authors. The sex is not explicit just often and with perfect women. The Gods left man to himself and man screwed it up, so the Gods came back to take control. The star of the show is a mortal, who is picked to become a semi-god. For me it was just a little silly and I have loved a lot of books, that others call sophomoric.
Piers Anthony has a series of books, that are on a similar theme, that I recommend. ON A PALE HORSE, is a good book along with the two that follow it.

What did you like best about this story?
The wide ranging changes brought about by the return of the classical gods, the collision of modern thinking and religious facts, the fun and confusion from all the what-if.
What about Larry Oliver’s performance did you like?
The wry sense of humor that he conveyed for certain scenes. When the protagonist was bewildered and confused by turns of events, you could almost _feel_ the character floundering and then regaining his mental feet.
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
I enjoyed listening to this in segments, like it was a serialized radio play.
