Fabulous! Highly recommended

I’m about 2/3s of the way through the book. I cannot stop listening. Before choosing this book about Greek Mythology I read countless reviews and summaries on other similar books. Some I sampled and didn’t care for the narrator’s voice. Others the reviews were too mixed for my liking. After listing to sample of this I just felt like it would be a good listen. I think the author does an amazing job of describing the different gods and goddesses. Not an information overload but good stories of each one. I could follow everything with out “spacing out” or feeling lost. The narrator does a phenomenal job as well. Sometimes all it takes is a bad reader or voice to make you loose interest. I would rate this as a 20 star if I could and highly highly recommend the book to anyone looking for a good listen and learn about Greek Mythology. I cannot praise it enough.

too much story about heroes

Very good narrative. But the story is a bit boring in the second half. Big part of the second half is entirely dedicated to Hercules and the Trojan war, which are way too long and boring.

Narrator keeps messing up

I feel like this should have edited out the mistakes. Do not buy the great courses is better an every time the narrator messes up he clicks his fingers and starts again. It’s not even like this is a cheap book. Audible has really gone down hill lately
