Editorial Reviews

In "Echo and Narcissus", Edward Ferrie, author of More Tales from the Greek Legends, presents the tragic story of two star-crossed and self-obsessed lovers in simple, accessible prose, perfectly formulated for younger listeners. In this cautionary tale, the beautiful nymph Echo falls in love with vain Narcissus, who rejects her, dooming her to invisibility. Narcissus soon, however, encounters a new paramour - his own reflection in the still water of a pond - and finds himself captivated, an obsession which spells out his own doom....

Benjamin Soames is a practiced and adept narrator, whose buoyant, enthusiastic voice and clear enunciation make this audiobook eminently listenable.

Publisher's Summary

This is a story from the More Tales from the Greek Legends collection.

Bellerophon and the winged horse Pegasus launch into the blue sky in search of the dreaded three-headed Chimera, but will success go to the hero's head? Orpheus, devastated by the death of his wife, Eurydice, dares the dangers of the kingdom of the dead in an attempt to bring her back to life. Echo loves Narcissus but he only loves himself: a story that can only end in sadness. These and other colourful legends from Ancient Greece are retold in lively form by Benjamin Soames, with classical music providing further excitement.
