It was excellent.

It kept me waiting for more of Greek Mythology. The narration is excellent and the stories are beyond beautiful. I loved the explanation, the morals are for all times to consider.

Great Insight Into The Mythos!

The book was phenomenally written and read! The author has the book divided into sections by story, and also, incorporating chapters in the story sections. This is a small, yet enormous detail, for the fact that, it breaks up the monotony. It also helps the listener/reader know what's going on, and makes the information easy to digest. I also really appreciate the short, sweet, yet understandable explanations of each story. Anyone interested in Greek Mythology, I would suggest giving this a listen/read. Although, there's one small critical nuance I must add; that's the fact that there are only stories of between 4 and 6 of the Greek mythos. I wanted more, and of the heroes and tales that are popular, as well as the more unpopular one like the ones the used. But, other than my small inquire, it's a fantastic book that I will revisit in the future!

Very entertaining and melodic reading

Really enjoyed this audio book. The Narrative was melodic, clear and captivating. Storyline illustrative with a good explanatory discussion afterwards. Will recommend this audible.
