Publisher's Summary

Being immortal isn't all it's cracked up to be. Life's hard for a Greek god in the 21st century: Nobody believes in you any more, even your own family doesn't respect you, and you're stuck in a dilapidated hovel in North London with too many siblings and not enough hot water.But for Artemis (goddess of hunting, professional dog walker), Aphrodite (goddess of beauty, telephone sex operator) and Apollo (god of the sun, TV psychic) there's no way out....Until a meek cleaner and her would-be boyfriend come into their lives and turn the world literally upside down.

Great Book :)

I havn't actually listened to the audio version of this so i cannot comment on that aspect.
I have however read the book and i loved it! I thought it was brilliantly written and hilariously funny with a very witty storyline! It has got alot of sexual references so if your easily offended by that sort of thing then it probably isn't for you but overall a great read - or listen :D

A Great Voice does not a good audiobook make

I bought this principally on the strength of having previously listened to the wonderful "Penguins Stopped Play" read by the same narrator. Not a very scientific choice you might reasonably say but both were comic books and both were generally very well reviewed.
I lived to regret the decision and the waste of several hours that I will never get back. The story line is hackneyed, the dialogue puerile and the ending utterly predictable.
If you would like a funny book involving Gods and humans then I would suggest "Anansi Boys" read by the inestimable Lenny Henry. Alternatively if you are looking for whimsy then there is a brilliant full cast audio version of "Salmon Fishing in the Yemen" floating around. For farce and some scathing social commentary you could do a lot worse than one of Marina Lewycka's books or, if you are not troubled by laughing in public, the aforementioned "Penguins Stopped Play" - the funniest and saddest book I have come across since Catch 22. Whatever else you do, don't waste a credit on this nonsense!
