Publisher's Summary

Gods and heroes are brought to life in this masterly retelling of the legends and tales of ancient Greece. Here are the great stories of the Heroic Age, from the myths of the making of the universe to the death of Heracles. Set against the colorful background of Greece and the Aegean, the adventures of heroes such as Perseus the Gorgon-slayer, Dionysus, Theseus, and Jason and the Argonauts once again come to life. In this skillful retelling, these tales are as vivid and exciting as when they were first told 3,000 years ago. The story of ancient Greece is continued in The Tale of Troy.

Great

I greatly enjoyed this title and can recommend it to anyone. It was a lot of fun. The speaker was easy to listen to. Also I do believe it can be recommended for teens as well as adults; many of the more graphic ideas in Greek myth have been glossed over. It's fun, easy to listen to and an easy way to learn more about Greek mythology.

Irritating Audio

The book does a good job of telling an overview of the Greek Heroes. My complaint is that the audio has some sort of rythym similar to being paused, forwarded, and then restarted after each sentence completes in much of the reading. It's as if the audio is actually a patch work.
