Interesting, but frequently inaccurate

The narration and storytelling were very good, my only gripe is the fact that many incidents of rape in Greek mythology were glossed over or reframed as romances - particularly the rape of Medusa by Poseidon. While the rest of the stories were fairly accurate, the account presented in this book of Medusa is entirely inaccurate and doesn't even mention the fact that Athena was the one who gave Medusa the ability to turn mortal men to stone, after she was raped by Poseidon in Athena's temple. I may be wrong but I am fairly well-versed in Greco-Roman mythology and as far as I know, Medusa and Poseidon were never married, nor were Zeus and Demeter (or many of the other women with whom he had affairs, which this book calls "wives").

Good

Narration was good, you probably are familiar with most if not all stores already but it's an enjoyable listen nonetheless.
