Publisher's Summary

See the story of Theseus and the Minotaur in a whole new light!

Minos thought he could
Pull a fast one
On me, Poseidon!
God of the Sea!
But I'm the last one
On whom you
Should try such a thing.
The nerve of that guy.
The balls. The audacity.
I AM THE OCEAN!
I got capacity!
Depths! Darkness! Delphic power!
So his sweet little plan
Went big-time sour
And his wife had a son
Born with horns and a muzzle
Who ended up
In an underground puzzle.
What is it with you mortals?
You just can't seem to learn:
If you play with fire, babies,
You're gonna get burned.

Much like Lin-Manuel Miranda did in Hamilton, the New York Times best-selling author David Elliott turns a classic on its head in form and approach, updating the timeless story of Theseus and the Minotaur for a new generation. A rough, rowdy, and darkly comedic young adult retelling in verse, Bull will have listeners reevaluating one of mythology's most infamous monsters.

Two horns up!

The male reader is so good and does a good job overall delineating the different characters, although I’d still like to hear it with a full cast. The female reader is not as good and sounds like she was recorded in a cave.

The book is a lot of fun, but the tragedy is also fully developed. The variety of poetic styles used by the different characters is effective, sort of Shakespeare meets hip hop. It’s a great fit for audio.

Love the take on the Minotaur

Fresh look at an ancient story . I loved the author’s take on the character of the Minotaur. The performers were spot on. I highly recommend this for teens and adults. There is a lot of bad language and subject matter that make it inappropriate for younger kids.
