Surprisingly good

The myths from the ancient world always fascinated me. Great day and age that we can just sit back and listen to those stories. Funny they believed these things back then.

The Greek roots

Hey, all the language and all the terms in our science we derived from Greek.... some of those stem from the myths. Like narcissists being from the Narcissus myth, etc.

Two books, doulbe the value

I can't believe this is out there! So cool! Skip all those hours in high school listening to lectures and get this one to find about Greek myths at your own time.

Good story, sometimes distracted by innocuous lang

A grand, serious narration shouldn't contain terms like "kicked the bucket". Uranus and Gaia's children shouldn't be called "kids", and Cronus should overthrow his father, not his "dad". A small criticism, but it really distracted from the story at times.

oops

while I'm no expert at speaking the written word, and I understand that the book is written in a complicated style, i must have counted no less than 30 orator corrections, which threw off the flow of the book significantly, some of which were back to back.

Awkward writing style

I thought I was getting the Greek version of Neil Gaiman's "Norse Mythology". I was wrong.

Not only is this long winded and hard to follow, it's also awkwardly informal. The author uses "kicked the bucket" a number of times instead of "died". Very weird. The author also uses "kid" instead of children and "dad" instead of father. I don't need a formal writing that sounds like it was from Victorian England, but it's very off-putting and makes it seem as if it was written by someone who just passed Freshman English.

Very disappointed; I tried a number of times to re-start and get back into this but to no avail. I've given up. I wouldn't recommend this to anyone with any respect for the English language.

Yes!

I thought this was an extensive bundle of good stories and heroes that they try to describe, even though they are all fictional.

Your typical Greek myths

Troy, Hades, Ikaros, and others are described in this double book or bundle. Very enjoyable to listen to all the stories.

Greeks

The mythological creatures and the epic characters in these books make sense. I had this stuff in high school, but audiobooks are the way to go.

British accent

I liked hearing a true British accent, as opposed to all the American narrators on Audible. This one stood out.

Romantic and epic

I thought the drama in the Greek mythology is one of the greatest ones in history, that's why I listened to this book. Nice execution. Well done.

Intriguing

The Greek myths apply to many words today and many habits and sciences that have been left over by it. Interesting read, I mean... listen.

Know what you get

If you like mythology, this is it. If you don't like a British accent, don't get it. But inn my eyes, the narrator was really good.
