Very Witty

While I anticipated this book being a bit more in-depth, at just under an hour it was able to provide a great overview of the Greek Myths while connecting retellings of the modern day. The narrator did an excellent job with inflection, keeping the reader engaged and indicating when the author was being a bit cheeky. It was very fun to listen to and I certainly learned quite a bit I didn’t know. I would recommend this book as a starting point for anyone wanting to learn more about Greek mythology. It provides enough information to give a reader an idea of where they may like to start their Greek mythology journey. I was provided with a free copy of this audio book for my honest review. The views expressed here are entirely my own.

Very Very enjoyable.

I listened to this book at 1.30x David Fuentes is very funny in making mythology fun to learn about. I cant wait to get more myth books by him. It's a funny book informing you who's who in GREEK Mythology. How they got their names. who they were married to , their parents and children. It was witty. the vocal artist Jason Hunt did a very very good job. I

Informational with a twist

Fuentes has a way of giving you the needed facts and commenting on them in the same breath. Although written in an easy to understand and listen to way, the comments are not always appreciated by this listener. Still definitely recommendable.

A quick peak into The Greek Gods and Goddesses

Nicely written and narrated. This is perfect for someone who is looking to get the basics of who's who and what's what.

Greek Myths You Must Know Before You Die! review

Even though this was a short audio book, and managed to get through it quick as a result, it was actually enjoyable-informative and interesting.

Great Narration

I so enjoyed this romp through the history of some Greek mythology. While it wasn't an all encompassing education about the Greek myths we know and love, it was very informative as well as entertaining. The narrator was great at giving us knowledge but sounding a bit like it was tongue in cheek.

Greek Myths

Very interesting short of Greek myths. Several of which I was not aware of. I did enjoy this a lot. And appreciated the bits of humor sprinkled here and there. It was well written and the narrator did a great job. I received this for free for an honest review.

Knowledgeable and funny

Greek Myths is both educational and funny it kept me both entertained as well as taught me a few things I didn't know. Jason Hunt is an amazing an funny narrator. This is my first book by David Fuentes but will definitely not be my last because this was phenomenal. I received this audiobook upon my request. I am leaving my honest review here of my own volition.

Bit disappointing

Very short introduction to Greek myth Learned a few things about lead arrows and hecatonchires and wished there had been more factual information because what was presented was good The quips about a Brixton council estate and Essex virgins were off and in my opinion, poor taste. Realise they’re meant to be funny comments but out of place and out of date humour

Don't waste your time, or money.

Terrible book... mine was obtained as a free download and it STILL wasn't worth the money! No myth is given more than the briefest of tellings, mere seconds in some cases, and the attempts at humour are puerile at best. If you have even the slightest interest in Greek mythology then still give this one a miss!

“Uranus... enough with the jokes please “

For what it is, it’s a great, funny little listen, but I was hoping for more ‘stories’ than just a list of facts like a dictionary. Sometimes it’s a little repetitive as you get the same fact regarding the wife during her husbands turn and hers for example. All in all though, would definitely recommend and listen to more of them. The narrator perfectly suits the book! This is my honest opinion of a free review copy.

Short

I half hate it because it's so short but what is there is fine. The Narrator was the best thing about it although his dramatic tone did get a bit wearisome after a while.

A Brief introduction to who's who in Greek Myths

This was actually a good little introduction, although too brief and with too much left out, it was to the point and amusing. However if you are looking for a book that gives you background and the whole of the numerous stories, this isn't it. As an audio-book it is still too much information to retain.with too many gods and goddesses to remember so I feel it would be better in writing. The narrator, was quite good (a bit slow but I sped him up). Overall 3.5 stars

Interesting Facts

Greek Myths by David Fuentes is a very quick listen full of facts. Its been years since hearing much about Greek Myths for me. The author did a good job with the details in a very limited time. I'd rather he include more details and have made the book longer, but it was still very enjoyable. Jason Hunt narrated the book fine. No over dramatization.

poor

a brief summary of facts could be quite useful but many are repeated and a lot of stereotyping in the beginning of the book, just made for a poor listen and didn't make it to the end
