Publisher's Summary

Thomas Bulfinch introduces us to the gods of the Greek, Roman, and Norse mythologies. We learn their stories and we also observe the similarities between the deities of yore. Comparing these stories and characters to those of some modern religions may produce some surprising results!

Too fast

The reader does not seem to breath, it is hard to know when a story starts and when another ends, specially because theres more than one story for one myth.

Bad Narrator.

I don't know what the narrator was thinking. She rushes through each story barely breathing. Must have had a time limit.

But for the narrator.. it would have been a 4

I have listened to two hours of it. Fortunately I also have the physical book, but if I want to walk around listening to it, it is impossible. The narrator, whom I usually like, is rushing through each section. it is as if the file is compressed to take out every little bitty pause. Impossible to tolerate. Sorry I wasted my credit on it.

Finally, "read," another great classic

The reader is a little slow for my taste, but I listen to all of my audiobooks sped up so that's very much my own opinion. The story was great and I'm glad I've finally experienced this great work.
