John Lee, the narrator has a wonderful voice, but I bought this book based on the sound of Kenneth C. Davis' enthusiastic introduction. I love this topic. i have scores of books and not a few audiobooks on mythology. I was looking forward to 20 hours of recounts and reflections on some of the greatest stories ever told, and in the voice of a fellow enthusiast, not in the voice of a classically trained actor doing a job...however good a job that might be.

Every line of dialog spoken by any and all of the characters was followed by: X said. or Y said. That's tiresome. Not only that, but the narrator read each one of those "X saids" with exactly the same tone and expression.
Dufris could have done a fine job, had the script been more interesting and/or had his director worked with him.
I like the idea of the story. I simply felt that the author did not develop it as carefully as he might have. I got the impression he dashed off his first draft and left it at that.
