Light on details, format constrictive

Although it gives an overview of Greek Mythology, which is very dense with history and mythos, I found the structure a little constricting. Every section began with "birth," "dramatic events," etc. Good voice artist. There was a mysterious insert of music (?) for many of the chapters. It was jarring and unclear as t what it was supposed to be. If it was meant as a dramatic interlude to set up the next chapter, it had the opposite effect. It took me out of the narrative so much that I nearly left only a 3-star review for the performance. But that wouldn't be fair. I would consider re-engineering/re-recording this book and take those distracting bits out.

HERA??

As great as the narrator sounded, the information in the story was inaccurate. When he said Persephone was the daughter of HERA, I stopped.

Good listen. Easy to understand and follow.

The book was an easy listen. I’ve only ever had a basic knowledge of Greek mythology. So it was a cool learning experience. Perfect for long car rides.

(The only thing I disliked, was during some of the chapter transitions I heard a loud sound of an AC or traffic in the background. Which isn’t a part of the book. Probably just a glitch or oversight.)

Colorful God's Turned Grey

Mythology provides us with some of the richest stories of the ancient world. They hold us captive with their characters and pull us into a world bigger than our own. I have listened to many books about various cultures mythological world, and this one was the most dissapointing by far.

I was hopeful at first when the writer lays out a small pantheon of gods and gives us their history and factual surroundings. However when it gets to the stories revolving around these gods, the writing remains black and white and boring. The characters are not given personality but rather depicted as soulless stones living out a dictionary. The reader does not help this problem at all.

Aside from dry writing and reading, I find some issue with the stories actual facts. Given the mythological catalog holds a LOT of variations on the same stories, some of what I heard in this book was nowhere near the version other books portray. I'm not saying they are inaccurate but I would have liked if he gave any other reference to other accounts like most others do. Alternatively, it would have been nice if he had supported his version by explaining where it came from and given some support to why his stories were so different from others.

Dissapointing read and won't do it again.

Great Book Series

I listened to this along with Celtic Mythology (next in series) during my morning commute. I love mythology, so I already knew a lot of the material covered, but there was a lot that I forgot about and some new stuff as well. I'd definitely recommend!

The narrator also did a great job.

I requested and received a free copy of this audiobook from the author, publisher, or narrator in exchange for an unbiased review. I was NOT required to write a positive review and this reflects my honest opinion of the work.

FASCINATING INFO ABOUT GREEK MYTHOLOGY!

I only knew the "bare minimum" about Greek mythology before listening to this audiobook. I enjoyed it!! There's tons of info about all the Greed Gods & Goddesses and their stories. It's not "everything you wanted to know," but an intriguing and thoughtful glimpse into why these figures have so captivated us throughout history. Very enjoyable read, and loved the narration also :)

Incredibly dull treatment of interesting subject

Keeping in mind that I have a degree in religious history: stay clear. I find the subject matter very interesting, but the writing and narration here is simply dull, which is impressive in a way, given the myths in question.
It might serve as a lexicon for the myths, but that’s missing a lot of the point in listening to them.
I recommend Stephen Fry’s version if you want an entertaining and comprehensive treatment.

Disliked

DNF at 30%.

I really didn't enjoy this book. There were mistakes and the author repeated information throughout the chapters. I also was not a fan of the narrator, Madison Niederhauser, who felt quite flat to me.
