Audio Book Summary

Step into another world - of magic, mayhem, monsters and maniacal gods - in Stephen Fry's momentous Sunday Times bestseller Mythos, brought to you by Penguin.
Lose yourself in the wonder of Greek myths in Stephen Fry's vivid retelling of the ancient classics.
Marvel in awe at the wise Athena as she is born from the cracking open of the great head of Zeus.
Shiver in fear when Pandora opens her jar of evil torments.
Listen with joy as the legendary love affair between Eros and Psyche unfolds.
Read by Stephen Fry himself, Mythos captures these extraordinary mythos for our modern age - in all their dazzling and deeply human relevance - in Fry's tantalising and magical narration.
'Fry's ear is finely tuned to the quaint tonality of some of his ancient sources. [His] distinctive voice undoubtedly adds something lively, humorous and intimate to myth's psychological dimension' Guardian
'Wit and erudition are impressively evident in Stephen Fry's idiosyncratic retelling of the myths of the Greek gods . . . He adds fascinating philological glosses and cultural references' The Times
'[Fry] exhibits prodigious learning, a great facility with words, and enormous erudition and enthusiasm' Mail on Sunday
