Formed: Paperback An entertaining and interesting book in the elderly Greek mythology written in the fashion that is recognisable likes Stephen Fries (if the has not looked never in QI). Originally, it have been looking for the book in elderly Greek mythology that is to be write in the modern way and would be both easy to comprise and fluent and think that this book has fulfilled these criteria. It have read reservation on Ulysses (Odysseus I thinks is known also as), Theseus, Hercules, Jason and a Argonauts and Perseus as well as seeing the few films have said roughly characters (although they are not covered really in this book because as it Fries partorisca mention you would require several books partorisca say his histories) and to the equal that has wanted to find the book that says other myths like a creation of some Of the Greeks, Titn and some of some less good characters known in to the Greek myth likes him Prometheus, Sisyphus, Persephone, but reason are not the classics scholarly no really chair that particularly enjoy read the ancient texts have translated like this the pound was so only in right and the ideal so that there is wanted.
Fries Uses some have has complicated words (although probably it recommend uses the dictionary) but I still found this to be, in a whole, easily understandable, adds it read and he ticked all some boxes so that I have looked for. It fries it is writing the fashion is (like images a man he to be) charming, intelligent and informative with the sense of talent and of course has abundance of footnotes to the equal that adds the extra bits of information likes them has said some histories. Also, it adds the section of sources in an end of a book so that they wish the delve further which thinks is an excellent idea.
Would recommend this book to any the one who has an interest in ancient Greek mythology (although any sure he is ideal for girls), especially wants to learn on some Of the Greeks, Titn and some the a lot of myths and the histories have associated with them but that using this like this drives definite has to that be view like a point of entrance to the fascinating subject.

Formed: Audible Audiobook I amour Stephen Fries. It is the glorious orator and artist and when I have learnt writes on some Greek myths, has been thrilled. Being born of the Greek parents and that have on grown with the passion partorisca these myths, has been excited partorisca read the new to take on them and of Stephen bloody Fries much less! It was excited like this I still peeled out of the little has bitten more partorisca a book of Audio. In this way it can have Stephen dulcet tones, reading his book of the mine so much has driven. Unfortunately, Stephen poor has directed partorisca turn this thrilling and gripping myths to the dreary ready of compraventa of some different types of titan and of the, with his names, that was apparently famous partorisca and in a process dipped partorisca sleep by means of sheer boredom.

Partorisca Any those who has done in fact a lot of years in some means comunicacionales, surely, has to be conscious of an old adage: the show does not say . The gentleman Fries is obviously ardent in these myths and very learnt of them. This in spite of, partorisca the plus that entertains king-saying of them suggests some looks of reader elsewhere.

It is Stephen Fries is partorisca bid partorisca result accepted like the 'national property'? If he like this has to that try harder. @I give that the gentleman Fries has done the career out of being arch and the little bit patronising, in the small amusing way, but here clashes with a subject @@@subject. Masters an idea to some Greek Myths? Memory be impressed enough for treatment of Tombs of Robert of this @@subject done some years and can, for like this, recommend it. This piece of twaddle - no so much.

Are the mythology but he so that far it has directed it more in Nordic mythology, like this for the while it have been that loves read more than Greek mythology. I have known classical myths like the box of Pandora, but an account of a creation of a world-wide and of the humanity was new mine and was fascinating. I found it especially that interests what of some histories, recounted for first Greek philosophers of an increase of Christianity, has alike biblical counterparts. While a book – so it Fries been in an introduction – no tip to go to a meaning and interpretation of some myths, there was still historical and geographic commentaries intriguing that me think. There are some modern references to the equal that dips his own transfer and humour to some classical histories.

Has found a book slightly last to take to and concentrate on, for several reasons: I have loved to read all a footnotes to the equal that have been interested, but this has meant breaking out of a main text and that loses a flow. Also, because of a character of mythology when being episodes and short histories, has not taken absorbed in a history in a same way does with the novel. But, neither of these things reflect bad in an author, is so only a character of a subject. Search to structure a book so that it is like this cohesive and easy to follow like this possible, but with to the mythology does not go to be never the direct linear history. Another thing was a sheer the quantity of the names has launched was – impossible to agree the one who was the one who and the one who was a father of the one who and the one who the powers have had – but, again, the supposition concealed is so only a character of mythology.

Likes read a second book, Hero, but will have the pause goes in!

Has read the few descriptions is, and swings one of two ways, neither, is really well, or can find better accounts of some Greek myths. Personally, I have found this to be incredibly entertaining. While it can not go like this thorough likes another when it comes to a picture a big plus of mythology. That gives is the history . A history said in the very only way, which is entertaining, amusing and interesting! It sells some myths, painting the for real beautiful picture with his words ( takes a basics does VERY A lot). If you are new to some Greek myths, or is the lover that wants to listen the new account said like the history, entwined to the line of coherent time, concealed there will be you yearning more thoroughly would recommend that you take the copy of Mythos.

Has purchased this book with a version of audio, and to be sincere like wonderful like that the narrator is, honradamente the desire has had no. A version of audio fails a lot of paragraphs of a book, has different odd words and losing a lot of sentences. In fact it causes to the plot of subjects is trying use a two near in sync, how is impossible the majority of a time. If you are the reader the one who use an audio apresamiento to help absorb an information inside the book, then would not recommend squandering your money that purchases it.
Like him standalone the book is very good and the very interesting bed, which would recommend.

Can not say the one who this book is writing partorisca. Some tones of tongue and dives of complexes to very basic as if it is to separate writing for audience of adult and then for small boys. It finds like the series of incomplete thoughts. I do not have enjoyed and the desire could take my money behind.
5 / 5
Can appreciate that Stephen Fries tried to do with this book, but am sad of the says has not done for me. There have it very too much in a way of modern syntax and has launched when it portrays conversations, feels jarring and out of place in the book in this subject @@@subject. I create in an Ivy of signals is writing like this saying ' will bet ' in report to guess where Zeus east, does not mean to be cruel but I cringed in the law that piece of dialogue. One ordering of some histories is wise in a first half of a book, but the a bit chaotic results that look in some means last, as if simply trying cram like this in like this possible, or as if some histories were afterthoughts.

Fries Mentions the book for Edith Hamilton, and takes my last subject a lot well in a preface of his book. In a @@subject to write the book of histories of vastly different time to differ complexity etc., Governs out of any tentativa to unify them so that it has involved aying in my histories of own way that was in any mine felt and has had state said by writers add in of the ways have thought has adapted his @subject'. For my flavour in reading Mythos, Fries has (in my opinion) fallen foul of this feeling, apresamiento too much artistic licence with some histories and likes to portray him.

Usually the bit of Greek mythology results the bit monotonous but ossia superbly fact. Alive iut in Greece and I have directed partorisca have some the Greek friends read it and want it. A partner has had his mother read it the one who teaches Greek mythology in colegiala and would like me use the like the help to teach still to take his pupils that the fall that chooses on the bit of English tongue on birds ,etc

This counting again of some Greek myths requires no leading knowledge and is said in Stephen Fries is way inconfundible. These characters can be of the but possess all a foibles of humans with his investigation for amour, revenge, anger, sulkiness, jealousies and vanities. You can read all some histories or simply diving in loving house in the particular deity. Any only is this reserves the must yes is the Hellenophile or lover of mythology but Fry also takes aches to aim a linguistic influence that some names of some of have them propiciado an English tongue - absolutely fascinating.
Also finds it that it amuses that a title is also a name cervecero Greek.

Are happy to read or listen the Greek Mythologies all day long; there is any way to do these histories that bores or tedious- no for me in all the chance. And in a same way, can listen Stephen Fries all day. Perhaps some could think that his tentativa to king-say he with some modern reference contrite. Well, Stephen Fries has any never has alleged fresco or hip. It is all tweed jackets and all some better for him-,a same time is also one of a first person to possess an Apple Mac computer in Londra. They are not one for audible books in that have always prefered- this in spite of prefer- books and real books, but this have hooked. Having roughly of one the majority of sumptuous and the good-looking histories have said the mine for Stephen Fries! It is exactly like this amazing as it conceal and more.

Has has had always the a lot of sketchy knowledge of some Greeks, and some myths of his existence and actions. This wonderful, entertaining and the informative book has fill in of the like this empty for me, and in the fashion that founds them a lot of enjoyable.

There is enjoyed this like this is them directly be the Amazon and has ordered a sequela, Heroine, to continue my learning and entertainment

has tried to read some Greek myths before but would take really confused roughly those who was those who and how is all has related! This version is easy to read without being “dumbed down”. As well as a tragedy and the work there are some flashes of humour, both of some myths and Stephen Fry is commentaries ( does not interrupt some histories too much, and there is useful footnotes throughout). I have it that there is enjoyed really read this book, and to good sure can me see that it read it again - a lot of something I often say!

Ossia The fantastic book for the frank approximation to count again some myths and legends of some ancient Greeks. Calm really can remark his amour for a mythology and an investigation that do.

A reason for only four is does uneccessary, irrelevent nods to a current agenda of LGBT+ community. I am not sure reason each audience imagine the one who identifies like such has to do it the thing in everything does. I do not create in focus, think a LGBT+ the community is going behind with still seal. This in spite of, do not want to tarnish this revises too much. But please, times and of the places to be that they shout on some community and concealed is not in the book of myths in Greeks that has not had focuses bobo for sexualities (thats thanks to a victorians).

Has found Mythos whilst so only exploring by means of quell'I could buy to read afterwards. And they are I happy I stumbled by means of Stephen Fries is book. My first book for him and has considered to give is the gone so that it agrees read by means of books of ancient myth like the boy. I have been drawn to the east for an end of a first chapter. Doing any supposition that knows even anything on some Greek myths, Stephen Fries calm walks by means of like this easily like the boy takes read the bedtime history, giving you so only a right quantity of info still retain still when this or that Goddess, @Titán, Ninfa or Oceanid collected on again, to good sure that causes mischief.

Find surprised that so much of our popular words and the sentences derive myths and was downtrodden there is @@give once quickly approached an end of a book. Easy to read, easy to comprise and easy to go back to (to good sure I ) down a line. Absolutely recommended!

Stephen Fries says the good history, and knows very a lot of the one who the majority of people loves for way of accessibility and clarity. Of this point of view - to the equal that could nettle scholarly - ossia the tentativa very brave to explain a lot of these knots of myths never enough took to, or there is perhaps excepts of the one who weave was too dark. His dry asides is useful, more than the distraction, as they confirm that we are taking a same thing like that is to write - some myths require this!

It was wonderful to read some histories agree of my infancy, but with Stephen Fries is inconfundible take on things. I know some reviewers has not liked him his informal fashion, but think likes of Fries is writing in general will enjoy this.
An investigation and the references are extended, as I can delve to some funds & of histories more want to, or so only read on by means of a main text.
Remorses to give was my infancy soyyths of Ancient Greece' and thinks that has found the worthy substitution :)

have the little of Stephen Fries is reservations to comprise autobiographies. My partner bought a second of some books of Greek mythology, but have them really has wanted to read in mandate. Calm does not have to that but have the bit of OCD for things like this lol. To dip it directly love these books. If you are to to the Greek mythology the taste, then of these books are for you. To good sure recommend these books.

Interpretation very simplistic of centuries of legend. It is done with amour and cure but with the tongue has stuck was the compliance. So only it lines it a surface of some histories but would be ideal for any the one who does not know him and loves the discharge of cradle

absolutely adores this book. They are always state interested to learn on history and of the Greek myths, but some histories can be like this complicated that is to dip always was. Stephen has there is broken some histories down and calm really help you to maintain the clue of the one who is the one who, reason there is the plot of greek of the and mythical creatures!
Really enjoys a way says some histories also. It is a lot of witty and when it begins to read I fight to dip a book down!
Wants to do more the books have taken!

Had listened of Greek mythology but never in any detail to the equal that have decided to read this book. Material Mythos done the wonderful work to cover a lot some main myths (that can say) in a reservation. I aimed that the plethora of words, the symbols and the appearances of modern life am derived of Greek mythology.

There is enjoyed this book because of a flowery tongue, entertainment. It looks this Fries the fun writing has had this and I have had certainly amused to read the.

Been seating in the bar of Greek beach for the pair of the days that read this wonderful king-saying of some histories that underpin so much of European literature. I have been adapted of a lot of histories that has agreed like the boy and promoted to enjoy a lot another the this was fresh uncle has fulfilled. There is enjoyed particularly these moments when you have been invited to see a hand of an ancient history teller giving words and experiences the one who live with us today.

This was bit it also ‘Stephen Fries' for my flavour. Some the ones of the Greeks are complicated and the gentleman Fries done his best to do them the little more comprehensible, which achieves to the big discharge. To That that did not like me was of some commentaries bobos as, for me, at all but nettle.

Listening to like this a audiobook mainly but also have kindle download for some images . Loving an audio reserves like this far, listens in bedding mainly but sometimes in a car .

Has loved this book. I have known roughly some of some 'of the' mentioned here but discovered like this more roughly him. I have loved a footnotes this has has linked words and of the sentences use today, with these of the and a time in that has lived it. I agreed of QI - as Stephen Fries once hosted. I found it informative and very easy to read without being to academician.

Ossia Splendid. There is a potential to be bit it dry but in Stephen Fries is the able hands is both learnt and involving. Easier That read that an original Homer or Ovid, this crisp setting out of some Greek myths and the characters leaves all these classical references partorisca fall to plant, of an impact our day-the-tongue of day to one the one who is and that it is of art of Renaissance. Well value the bed.

Has been sold like the he counting again of some myths but in realities so only loans the one who has given birth tho that and like a greek advantages of tongue to the modern day english terms. Well If yours to this think but has been expecting this partorisca be more than the history. For example wheb taking on a clash of some @@@titan, a war is glossed on partorisca direct on like ceeated mountains and volcanoes.

The one who the delight Stephen Fries is. Ossia An entertaining and fascinating saying of some Greek Myths. If it have been able to read this while it studies a @subject @ would be it much more be enjoyable - and some facts would be remained with me. Usually when I have read it is my own alcohol listens in my boss - but Stephen certainly takes on is one. Súper Work, Stephen

Has thinks that has known enough bit it on some Greek myths, but has been surprised reason has not known after reading this excellent book.

Can not expect movement on to some Heroes reserve now. 😁

His a lot of QI, easy to comprise, enough the jolly approximation the Greek mythology. This in spite of, sometimes chair that that can be quite patronising so that it say that it is to somewhere in a half among the serious book in Greek Mithology and Of the for dummies or to the to something likes concealed. Enjoyable Read in any case.

An emphasis remains in the annale that says more than the studio of a subject of the Greek mythology and I enjoyed it immensely! I have read books of studio on mythology to the equal that interest but is wonderful to read the ape he counting again of these myths, and in fact ossia a whole point of myths to the equal that are meant to be tale again to maintain them alive.

When it Was school age , a lot of moons, has loved some histories of Greek Mythology. But my reading has not been good and has been classified like this “so only another boy of the working class begun of for life of factory”. Today probably it was diagnosed dyslexic.

Arrived to finalise reading Stephen Fries is new book Mythos and his thrilling prose, boss in the reality and a magic way have said a yarns his active rekindled the passion had forgotten.

Well has finalised doing in the factory but any before I have achieved the terracing of honours in chemist and not doing in “face of coal”.

A inverted Churchillian cradles to sign to import to give to mine then professors😈

This book is the wonderful to redraft of some Greek myths. Stephen Fries headed to humanise and modernise excellent histories that a half reader could have been postponed for been due to his fashion of inaccessible writing. Still if are not interested particularly in of the Greek myths, would have to read this purely for a writing adds!
5 / 5
Because of the whoops in my part, has ordered this after buying a second first book... Time of advantage along planned, probably to be the new press, to good sure value a wait, and that looks forward to to devour the gentleman Fries is your conversational word for word. If you are the defender of Greek mythology, or master delve deeper, buy this book. Very happy.

Was while to this book never has finalised of then Hero, a second book in a series. Troia Is my subject favourite partorisca read roughly of then is full of myths add, histories, heroines, villains, sorrow, ache, lust and amour. I have known Stephen Fries would do the work adds partorisca count again a history more orders of the time everything . And he the brilliant work! This book goes back to a start of Troia and I take on the travesía of there that to an end, an end of Troia, an end of honour and an end of the was adds. We take partorisca know Hector, Achilles, his parents, Parigi, Helen and where has come from/come from and like a Olympians has interfered with his lives. I am impacted still like a destiny and fate shaped a fall of Troia of such one early phase. This rids is not the heavy read. It is a lot of enjoyable, but still learn the plot more roughly Troia. It has laughed, feeling sad, annoyed, angry and happy a time still whilst reading this. I seat lucky and blessed partorisca have Stephen law Fries is retelling of a history more orders of the time everything . I expect that it will continue to count again some Greek myths and other historical chances, reasons his fashion is funny, informative and respectful. It does not try never interpret a history, does not try never partorisca form he to something more and one he counting again does not feel never pretentious in any point. This was brilliant.

Informs of a quality of a physical book has received on quotes of emission, no of a content written.

A type of hardback has not been of a same quality of some leading publications: Mythos and Heroines. I am not sure that type of hardback this would call in a publishing industry but does not comprise the jacket of powder.

Besides, some flanges of a book there is rid has has looked attacked and tired. It appears uncared for previously the delivery.

The turn of coverage and shabby and a packaging has been opened? Surely it would owe that have the slip covers this looks to be fault of editor. Services of the client of Amazon has contacted refunded payment, will order them another copy of mint when some subjects are dipped commanded .
The amazon has said that that has had the plot of complaints king this but happy with a repayment.

Ps Are sure that a book is absolutely Stephen excellent Fries has there is nailed absolutely these books.. Bravo Stephen

Obviously a quality of a production would not owe that affect a bookmark this in spite of, in this chance some needs of publishing unit to know this type of the low quality practice is not acceptable.

Tear and spend smaller to some sides of a hardback, and the considerable creases/tear In a half of a paper that bows. Have Absolutely any idea like this could have spent.

In @@subject, a book is fantastic. It fries it Is like this scholarly as never. So only like some last two books, could not recommend anything better that this trilogy to the beginner that wants to take to Greek myth.

One of some better books for me this year. They are any classicist but an ardent Hellenophile (if ossia the word ). I have it quell'has loved always some myths and of the legends but found last him going usually because of a sheer quantity of unfamiliar names and his functions in some histories and am appreciated for some authors those who dipped the to the format that felt of frames. It fries it Is the humour comes by means of strong and clear and is not fearful to adapt a reader any to take too bogged down in some names and of the places. The mine hardly law Iliad can remain in a bookshelf that maintains (Homer sad). But this inspired reservation me to (perhaps) tries it again.

I have wanted it Fries it is books Mythos and Heroes that have listened to in Audiobook as it could not expect for Troia but decided to take he in hardback this time. I have wanted to Troia. Appearance Fries writes versions more own of myth. It would want to read his still take on Nordic Mythology. To The Troia like him to him some other two books is written in Frying is directly-advance, conversation verging in chatty yours, like the book is easy to read, and does not require to wade by means of dense prose or boring bits. Some books are a lot accessible. I have read enough the plot of Greek mythology and in fact am studying he for my University terracing has opened, like the plot of a reference of characters is mine familiarised, of my course or another half comunicacionales like this of the films. I have been involved with a history of page an and there is enjoyed each word. Troia Is fantastic.

Ossia A third of Stephen Fries is trilogy in legends and of the Greek myths, and is each one has bitten like wonderful to read like this glorious Mythos and Hero that has preceded this volume. This rids recounts a goodness until a Trojan war and some 10 years of the chair and that struggle as it has followed. A mould of characters is surprising; some of the Zeus, Ivy, Afrodita, Hephaestus, Athena, and Apollo, and some humans and of the means, Helen, Achilles, Patroclus, Hector, Parigi and Odysseus go in a lot of other looks in these splendid he counting again of Homer ancient histories.

A history begins with a doings of a Olympians and chances that the human has been dipped by train for a competitiveness of some of the. An abduction of Helen for Parigi, some 1000 ships have launched to take behind, a Trojan horse - in general the wonderful history, brilliantly written with humour and way.

A book also profits of the a lot of gains timeline in a start of a book and the full cast of dramatis personae, with pictures of pen cut of the each one, in an end.

This all the fact for a lot enjoyable reading as well as fill in of the empty in knowledge in Greek mythology ( at least for me). So only a critic - and no of a writing. Reason a lack of the jacket of powder? It spoils a presentation that economic looks, and disappoints it the joint to one has produced very better Heroine.

Still, definately the value that shabby and enjoying

have fallen enamoured with some Greek myths when it was 11 years . My professor of English Literature in first year in secondary school was the crown has called Gladys Urwin. Still behind in 1977 it was old fashioned. Wild hair, the mould in his eye and a inexhaustible supply of tweed skirts. If you are quite old to think in Margaret Rutherford likes him the Miss Marple and will take of a picture. It was a butt of a lot of kid it, but his knowledge of and amour for a classics inspired me and we often read aloud of some myths in a library in his lessons.

Advances to turn to today. 'TROIA' Arrived to arrive and represents a perfect present (of me) to the bibliophile. A smell and heft of the hardback book. A subject @of mine so it has wanted. And, a better part, an author is my favourite human being ; Stephen Fries. As I am reading this book, listen his voice, full to excite and emotion in recounting this history adds, as it has spent today.

So much, if it likes him-you the books and the history, ossia the addition adds your collection.

Of the big thanks to Gladys, Stephen and everything in Penguin Marie Random. It is it was to buy Mythos and Hero now, with my book or his!

This was the king-saying ideal to read aloud. We have not taken a version of audio but read the to the each one which as another legislation of a text and he take the pair of weeks to read in bite-sized chunks. Wide occasion for acting is gone in on some upper voices, and have given a lot of entertainment. There is enough to plot of footnotes, some duquel was dark but fascinating. We skipped these and then dipped in in an end.

That comes on a book is so only that bloody a war in Troia really was, and one that says this tongue to use a lot of gore, and to the equal that to the skill of a writer has come really to game. They are the bit of the defender of Classical mythology and has read a lot of king-tellings of this history, and have another has preferred king-saying therefore one 4 more than 5 stars. We have read also aloud Mythos and Heroines like this desquels equally is entertaining and highly recommends this series for lockdown nights.

Follows Stephen Fries is joint, and does not try and agree some concursantes' names and of the reports. Any necessary. Some the main players will maintain to come to a fore and clave in a boss.

So only take bit of the schooling that mentions 'Helen of Troia,' and 'horse of forest,' this book has been published and announced how was partway by means of the odyssey of Homer (a desire to expand the mine that reads like this of the waters takes deep.) Myth, legend, history of fairy, reality and fact, has based on reality? That? An explanation of a human psyche? A demonstration and the reflection of the one who is? Or the history that defines western? So many questions.

Troia Is exceptionally a lot of ( would say 'lovingly') writing, bit to Fry is humour resupplying a icing in an immense scholarly investigation this is to go his production .

Happy bought it. Much happier to have it has read. Going paralización more.

This was the delicious to read which resupplies defenders of Greek mythology an intriguing look to a diverse and intertwining histories that precedes and unfold during some last days of Troia. I have been surprised to learn of Parigi having the first woman and Helen having the edges and daughter when it has been kidnapped. Some of the like this always is like this capricious, insignificant and divisive as never, and his self has centred the actions do fault to hamper and condemn a mortals more than helping them.
All some characters are @to @give fully by means of Frying is witty and tongue in lentil of cheek that his leading deliveries, Heroines and Mythos is written by means of. A violence that considers the be has expected is unhindered and has abundance of the historical context resupplied for behind the each appearance of a history. It fries he an observation that a real and fantastical go hand manually, which an interpretation esatta of some chances of Troia and or when they have taken place exactly hard to pinpoint or to discern that version of chance could be considered one the majority of attentive.
All some characters of entities and minors are given an attention and home deserve and for new readers as well as lifelong the scholars of Homer is work ossia the very interesting beds.
My only objection is an end , which felt quite sudden and in the negative note, with which a sacking of Troia. Not being any date of epilogue in some fates of some survivors or included nod to presage to an Odyssey or a Aeneid. He so only final, and is for this that have had to that embezzle the star, which feels insignificant of me to do like this.
Like some leading books, the row of the classical artistic representations of characters are resupplied and included a 2004 Film of Troia is informed to, which was surprised enough to see.
In general that it interests it read for all the defenders of adult of Greek Mythology.

But a coverage was sticky and soiled and so only generally quite gross. The god knows that it was throughout that.

Has expected some months for an arrival of this book and I has not been disappointed. It gives the wonderful sense of time and place, and some characters - resisted out of myth, legend and oral history – whose exploits and the passions drive a narrative, is spent brilliantly to the life for Stephen Fries is that it says history. I want to Homer - the one who any one? But this book, in bringing together joined several sources that relates a fate of Troia, adds the new dimension to a history. AS it Fries' said a history, a representation of Parigi like the tragic hero in some versions of films, is substituted by the far less attractive character. All a greats is there, touching out of his parts and, in an end, rests with him sneaking admiration for some Greeks. It is it adds it read and well value 5 stars. They are in accordance with another, this in spite of, that a production of some leaves of coverage to plot to be wished - he no his justice of contents.
4 / 5
Is spent or is not irrelevant. The gentleman Fries and Homer portrayed human character in the depth that is troubling, exuberant, terrifying and exciting all a same time. As I read history that is 3500 years- give or take - I has @to @give that at all it changed it really. A writing is - like this always - superbly involving. He no any difference if ossia the historical fact , complete myth or the bit of both reasons, enough frankly, has included much more the recent historians are choosy with his records and sometimes create complete myth. It likes me quell'has said. At all there is has changed really.

Has read Mythos and the heroes and both are excellent. Mythos Had been my favourite book of Stephen Fries is like this far but TROIA is masterpiece of the history that says of this master. I want to greek to the mythology in everything is a lot of forms and this history of Troia is an absolute pinnacle of battles of epic. Some conflicts have described among Trojans and the Greeks and some descriptions of the interior of battle is simply like this to any, fabulously has described. If you want to read roughly Troia this book is the must in any another.

Has bought this in the bookshop when it is gone in vacacional in an end of last year. It is the traditional and good quality lovely hardback book with the dustcover. I have been surprised to see this here in £10 but, ossia clearly any one an edition has bought. Caveat emptor. Takings That pays the principle. In another note, are for the half way by means of and enjoying it. It finds it Fries it is approximation the little light and informal date a real gravity of a material, chooses look with an eye to that says roughly elderly Greek civilisation, but is a lot readable and the decent way in is unfamiliar with him and find Homer difficult. It would recommend to progress to a Iliad this in spite of. Knowing a history can help to do a good-looking poetic way in that is said that much easier to appreciate.

Shining. Has has wanted to both of Stephen Frys leading books Mythos and the heroes and this was any exception. The fact that reads roughly Troia a lot of enjoyable and accessible partorisca me.

It could write the cast of compraventa and he entertaining, as the one who am concerned. Wonderfull History teller that is.

Like the dyslexic, has found the plot of some hard names partorisca pronounce in my boss to the equal that has taken the moment partorisca regulate, this in spite of a way has been written was easy to comprise and was hooked. I gave then Hero, a second and was even more glorious to read and the drift was to, but then could not expect for his to buy me Troia and the have purchased like this on day of emission. It is said like this well the chair are in some cost of Troia he with some main lights of both a Trojans and some Greeks. When being the dyslexic of the sure age (before it has been recognised in pupil) has read seldom on some years to the equal that take 5 times partorisca read the sentence to fully the comprise, this in spite of seat a way this is writing and an emotion of a subject @@@subject, could read them each sentence 50 times this in spite of being enthralled.

Punctual delivery and very packed, arrived in good condition. They are in the light dilemma here, liked really of this version of a history. In my opinion dips a scene well in a start and comprises things that other versions ignore, eg Amazons but has too many footnotes partorisca mine in pleasant, which his the bed interrupts a history too much. I have found after reading a footnotes that the plot of them could be ignored. This knowledge will augment my entertainment of him a second time around.

Mythos and the heroes were good books but ossia where a paste of author his stride. An excellent he counting again of this history adds. It has said with compassion and talent. There is quite a lot of emotion and any glorification of a chair and scenes of thrilling battle. The shame has had to finalise. Hopefully An author will consider a Odessey or a Aeneid like his next project.

Liked a tone Stephen Fries used thus book, as it has done for forward Mithos and Hero, to the left comprise better some histories familiarised have complicated of some heroes have involved. Have enjoyed really read a book but I have found he somehow incomplete: I think that it that it would have to it has said it more on some returns of heroes in his houses, unless it is planning to do another book that develops Odisseus, Aeneas, Agamemnon etc etc turbulent life after an end of Troia S war

Formed: Audible Audiobook Ossia a audiobook that simply can not recommend enough. One of the legends of the British entertainment in Stephen Fries stick of these ancient histories and breathes the contemporary form of life and colour to them in his own only fashion. It is the mix of description, the little conjecture and of course the action of a lion when be taken by these glorious old histories they. They take front and phase of centre and while it Fries cleverly interweaves background and the information does not feel never likes anything another that the be has said a history to involve. Of course when be Stephen also takes charming nuggets of the etymology has launched to a mix also.

Some Of the, heroes and of course the villains are given an often stray humanity and character that is both charming and humorous.

Sincerely, although clearly the plot of personal investigation has been to this animal-tellings is neither the comprehensible collection, more than Swipes more Utmost calm , neither is the very scholarly work. This in spite of, likes me of calm mainly have the knowledge of any of some Greek or the calm myths want to dip your toe to them for a first time ossia the fabulous put to start with.

Formed: Kindle Edition Each few generations like this a lot gives the new plus he counting again of some Greek myths. Transmissions of tongue and consistently the histories written older very always involve a reader as they can of him once had done. With east in alcohol Stephen Fries has given already Mythos, which has very helped partorisca know some myths of creation of Ancient Greece, and with this book I maintaining volume of knots to an Age of Heroine, with the together of retellings of famous histories.

Here then has Jason and a Argonauts, and his investigation partorisca a Golden Fleece, some Works of Heracles (better known to a lot likes Hercules), Theseus, Atalantis, Perseus, Oedipus, Bellerophon and Orpheus among others incidents and of the characters. Of course together with that have some Of which help or no sure people, together with all some different monsters and other elements of some histories.

Knows that some people advise people partorisca read a book for Robert Caduto, and yes is very partorisca all some variac. Different the histories, this in spite of in some Tombs of same times have tried to force down our throats his theories on religion and similar pleasure, which do not stand up to scrutiny and not having never does like this. With the calm book like this takes some histories in an easily digestible form so that they always are that they rush roughly, and also the time is mentioned on the variac. Other sources. Partorisca Maintain to some histories Fry obviously any some deceptions that the tombs have done, and with considerations to thoughts in of the myths and of the legends, there is the little piece in a backside of this book where an author gives some basic ideas in some theories of myths and some the different ways have been interpreted.

Together with maps, and other illustrations that comprises produced and ceramic and sculpture this book has to that it weaves partorisca offer a general reader and is sure partorisca do well with the youngest readers and older. Some the Greek myths are the part of our heritage, like this in fact partorisca everything of Western Europe, and games, films, the books and the games are inspired still in his, as they are of entities partorisca know and sometimes am surprised by an ignorance of them was for the oldest people. Saying something another month in a riddle of a Sphinx, which is said here, has been surprised that my parents have not known one the majority of famous of all the riddles.

Giving you some few hours partorisca read the pleasure there is for several characters and like this on here, as well as other books have mentioned that you can wish to peruse he wishes to discover more on some histories that is again here, which in time will remark, an author has injected some humour to.

Formed: Kindle the edition are the big defender of the Greek myth and Stephen Fry is an excellent storyteller. Ossia The quite directly saying of some ancient myths with an injection of irreverent humour here and there is a lot in a tone would expect abonos-naturedly the gentleman has learnt Fries.
Has to that admit this in spite of, that my attention has begun the flag to the equal that achieve one halfway point. Too many Of some histories have selected has followed the narrative model very alike (uncle of bad/dashing young hero), and without overarching edge of history to pull it all the joint does not look to be going anywhere. It is the most read book in of the small explosions like this calm does not begin the thought dulls.
To the equal that have said that they are the big defender of Greek myths (especially Homer but begin on that we will be here all day, some lies of interest, perhaps, in any so only a be of the history has said, but the one who a way a history is said I says roughly like the people a lot the time thought and senses), and love a plus has involved, relaxed storytelling of Madeline Miller or Margaret Atwood (A Penelopaid), this looks thin and dry in comparison, so only skirting a surface of these complex and interesting histories.

Each few generations like this a lot gives the new plus he counting again of some Greek myths. Transmissions of tongue and consistently the histories written older a lot always involve a reader to the equal that can of him once had done. With east in alcohol Stephen Fries has given already Mythos, which has very helped to know some myths of creation of Ancient Greece, and with this book I maintaining volume of knots to an Age of Heroine, with the together of retellings of famous histories.

Here then has Jason and a Argonauts, and his investigation for a Golden Fleece, some Works of Heracles (better known to a lot likes Hercules), Theseus, Atalantis, Perseus, Oedipus, Bellerophon and Orpheus among others incidents and of the characters. Of course together with that have some Of which helps or no sure people, together with all some different monsters and other elements of some histories.

Knows that some people advise people to read a book for Robert Caduto, and yes is very still all some variac. Different the histories, this in spite of in some Tombs of same times have tried to force down our throats his theories on religion and similar pleasure, which do not stand up to scrutiny – and not having never does like this. With the calm book like this takes some histories in an easily digestible form so that they always are that they rush roughly, and also the time is mentioned on the variac. Other sources. To maintain to some histories Fry obviously any some deceptions that the tombs have done, and with considerations to thoughts in of the myths and of the legends, there is the little piece in a backside of this book where an author gives some basic ideas in some theories of myths and some the different ways have been interpreted.

Together with maps, and other illustrations that comprises produced and ceramic and sculpture this book has to that it weaves to offer a general reader and is sure to do well with the youngest readers and older. Some the Greek myths are the part of our heritage, like this in fact for everything of Western Europe, and games, films, the books and the games are inspired still in his, as they are of entities to know and sometimes am surprised by an ignorance of his same for the oldest people. Saying something another month in a riddle of a Sphinx, which is said here, has been surprised that my parents have not known one the majority of famous of all the riddles.

Giving you some few hours to read the pleasure there is for several characters and like this on here, as well as other books have mentioned that you can wish to peruse he wishes to discover more on some histories that is again here, which in time will remark, an author has injected some humour to.

Are the big defender of the Greek myth and Stephen Fry is an excellent storyteller. Ossia The quite directly saying of some ancient myths with an injection of irreverent humour here and there – is a lot in a tone would expect abonos-naturedly the gentleman has learnt Fries.
Has to that admit this in spite of, that my attention has begun the flag to the equal that achieve one halfway point. Too many Of some histories have selected has followed the narrative model very alike (uncle of bad/dashing young hero), and without overarching edge of history to pull it all the joint does not look to be going anywhere. It is the most read book in of the small explosions like this calm does not begin the thought dulls.
To the equal that have said that they are the big defender of Greek myths (especially Homer – but begin on that we will be here all day, some lies of interest, perhaps, in any so only a be of the history has said, but the one who a way a history is said I says roughly like the people a lot the time thought and senses), and love a plus has involved, relaxed storytelling of Madeline Miller or Margaret Atwood (A Penelopaid), this looks thin and dry in comparison, so only skirting a surface of these complex and interesting histories.

Interesting read, Ladies . It fries he the work adds to say some histories without interpreting them for us. Other books written on some Greeks tend to be very dry, but this was the delight .

These are absolutely wonderful retellings of Greek mythology. Now I am ordering a first volume, Mythos, to take some of some earlier histories, and am expecting that Stephen Fries no for here with Heroines but continuous in to give retellings of the odyssey of Homer & Iliad and Virgil Aeneid, the histories certainly would look forward to to read in a future.

Does not think has read retellings this well for the long time, perhaps of then David Kossoff count again some histories of Bible, which now looks very a lot the time does in fact. Highly recommended.

I hope finds my useful description.

Has loved to read this account of some heroes of Ancient Greece, comprising Hercules, Orpheus, Odysseus, and of course Jason and his investigation for a Golden Fleece. There are a lot of monsters here too much: centaurs, a minotaur, a cyclopes, fines has begun dogs and fines has begun serpents to appoint but the little - a lot of challenges for some heroes to face sometimes with a help of some of the, sometimes in spite of his interventions.

Some histories are said in the a lot of involving and entertaining the fashion and I have learnt to plot and filled in all the classes of empty in my knowledge. There is to plot here to agree, but is to like real to read, in all the chance.

In the bed that this volume and also Mythos, are really that looks forward to that I attentive be a third volume that has spent some Trojan wars and his consequences

2. Odysseus Histories to say, some desquels is his famous adventures so only a lot in brief gave, another is simply long fibs to hide his identity
3. Telemachus cryings in his missing father; Penélope cryings in his missing husband - the one who is developed then to have is returned!

Has several references to characters and chances of A Iliad, as well as the tension to grow like this Odysseus hides of - then of plots - a murder of a suitors the one who is ruining his house. This in spite of, some the majority of famous histories of Odysseus the travesías are surprisingly brief.

Has chosen a translation for Fagles reason looks one the majority of effective use of English while maintaining faithful to a presentation of an original. It is fact very clear to read like this ossia the history has treated as much as sung, with the possibly has treated sections like this standalones - therefore to plot of repetition that is it gone in before.

Like this with A Iliad has some good ideas the culture of Age of European Iron, but like the history is difficult to enjoy like the experience to read reason was not written never thus purpose.

Would recommend this book to any the one who has an interest in ancient Greek mythology (although any sure he is ideal for girls), especially wants to learn on some Of the Greeks, Titán @ and some the a lot of myths and the histories have associated with them but that using this like this drives definite has to that be view like a point of entrance to the fascinating subject.

I amour Stephen Fries. It is the glorious orator and artist and when I have learnt writes on some Greek myths, has been thrilled. Being born of the Greek parents and that have on grown with the passion for these myths, has been excited to read the new take on them and of Stephen bloody Fries much less! It was excited like this I still peeled out of the little has bitten more for a book of Audio. In this way it can have Stephen dulcet tones, reading his book of the mine so much has driven. Unfortunately, Stephen poor has directed to turn this thrilling and gripping myths to the dreary ready of compraventa of some different types of @@@titan and of the, with his names, that was apparently famous for and in a process dipped to sleep by means of sheer boredom. Have there is so only he roughly 15 of a way by means of, but are afterwards to give up. The one who concerns that the ivy is exited of Rhea as to last and has been described like proud, imperious, jealous, haughty and vengeful. Or that, a Horai has looked two insiemi of triplete daughters, so that it goes to the for minor I adds that it describes his embodiment of some seasons. For any those who has done in fact the a lot of years in some means comunicacionales, surely, has to be conscious of an old adage: the show does not say . The gentleman Fries is obviously ardent in these myths and very learnt of them. This in spite of, for the plus that entertains king-saying of them suggests some looks of reader elsewhere.

There is enjoyed really read this book. You are not that it was with which but liked all one same. I have read a Illiad and an Odyssey and really loved a fashion to write and some lines of thrilling history. This book is more an exposure of some of the a lot of Greeks, but the writings for Steven Fries in his way inconfundible own. The writings of ancient myths in modern tongue.
His interesting and enjoyable and done the good works of places like this so it was possible near in the alone book without not doing calm never seats ossia material of studio for an examination.
To good sure would recommend

Very Like this when being the massive defender of the Greek mythology and one has taken like this my eye on here in my page of house of the recommendations to the equal that have purchased and has not been disappointed. Although any a lot of in an upper that is mad about so only could do not dipping down reading some exploits of Zeus and His Ivy of woman. Stephen Fries is a lot of eloquent with his wording likes man posh he. Haha. A canny read as it give it the gone.

If he like this has to that try harder. @I give that the gentleman Fries has done the career out of being arch and the little bit patronising, in the small amusing way, but here clashes with a subject @@@subject.

Are the mythology but he so that far it has directed it more in Nordic mythology, like this for the while it have been that loves read more than Greek mythology. I have known classical myths like the box of Pandora, but an account of a creation of a world-wide and of the humanity was new mine and was fascinating. I found it especially that interests what of some histories, recounted for first Greek philosophers of an increase of Christianity, has alike biblical counterparts. While a book – so it Fries been in an introduction – no tip to go to a meaning and interpretation of some myths, there was still historical and geographic commentaries intriguing that me think. There are some modern references to the equal that dips his own transfer and humour to some classical histories.

Has found a book slightly last to take to and concentrate on, for several reasons: I have loved to read all a footnotes to the equal that have been interested, but this has meant breaking out of a main text and that loses a flow. Also, because of a character of mythology when being episodes and short histories, has not taken absorbed in a history in a same way does with the novel. But, neither of these things reflect bad in an author, is so only a character of a subject. Search to structure a book so that it is like this cohesive and easy to follow like this possible, but with to the mythology does not go to be never the direct linear history. Another thing was a sheer the quantity of the names has launched was – impossible to agree the one who was the one who and the one who was a father of the one who and the one who the powers have had – but, again, the supposition concealed is so only a character of mythology.

Likes read a second book, Hero, but will have the pause goes in!

Has purchased this book with a version of audio, and to be sincere like wonderful like that the narrator is, honradamente the desire has had no. A version of audio fails a lot of paragraphs of a book, has different odd words and losing a lot of sentences. In fact it causes to the plot of subjects is trying use a two near in sync, how is impossible the majority of a time. If you are the reader the one who use an audio apresamiento to help absorb an information inside the book, then would not recommend squandering your money that purchases it.
Like him standalone the book is very good and the very interesting bed, which would recommend.

Has read the few descriptions is, and swings one of two ways, neither, is really well, or can find better accounts of some Greek myths. Personally, I have found this to be incredibly entertaining. While it can not go like this thorough likes another when it comes to a picture a big plus of mythology. That gives is the history . A history said in the very only way, which is entertaining, amusing and interesting! It sells some myths, painting the for real beautiful picture with his words ( takes a basics does VERY A lot). If you are new to some Greek myths, or is the lover that wants to listen the new account said like the history, entwined to the line of coherent time, concealed there will be you yearning more thoroughly would recommend that you take the copy of Mythos.
5 / 5
Can not say the one who this book is writing partorisca. Some tones of tongue and dives of complexes to very basic as if it is to separate writing for audience of adult and then for small boys. It finds like the series of incomplete thoughts. I do not have enjoyed and the desire could take my money behind.
5 / 5
Can appreciate that Stephen Fries tried to do with this book, but am sad of the says has not done for me. There have it very too much in a way of modern syntax and has launched when it portrays conversations, feels jarring and out of place in the book in this subject @@@subject. I create in an Ivy of signals is writing like this saying ' will bet ' in report to guess where Zeus east, does not mean to be cruel but I cringed in the law that piece of dialogue. One ordering of some histories is wise in a first half of a book, but the a bit chaotic results that look in some means last, as if simply trying cram like this in like this possible, or as if some histories were afterthoughts.

Fries Mentions the book for Edith Hamilton, and takes my last subject a lot well in a preface of his book. In a @@subject to write the book of histories of vastly different time to differ complexity etc., Governs out of any tentativa to unify them so that it has involved aying in my histories of own way that was in any mine felt and has had state said by writers add in of the ways have thought has adapted his @subject'. For my flavour in reading Mythos, Fries has (in my opinion) fallen foul of this feeling, apresamiento too much artistic licence with some histories and likes to portray him.
5 / 5
Usually the bit of Greek mythology results the bit monotonous but ossia superbly fact. Alive iut in Greece and I have directed partorisca have some the Greek friends read it and want it. A partner has had his mother read it the one who teaches Greek mythology in colegiala and would like me use the like the help to teach still to take his pupils that the fall that chooses on the bit of English tongue on birds ,etc

Law count again of some Greek myths requires no leading knowledge and is said in Stephen Fries is way inconfundible. These characters can be of the but possess all a foibles of humans with his investigation for amour, revenge, anger, sulkiness, jealousies and vanities. You can read all some histories or simply diving in loving house in the particular deity. Any only is this reserves the must yes is the Hellenophile or lover of mythology but Fry also takes aches to aim a linguistic influence that some names of some of have them propiciado an English tongue - absolutely fascinating.
Also finds it that it amuses that a title is also a name cervecero Greek.

Has has had always the a lot of sketchy knowledge of some Greeks, and some myths of his existence and actions. This wonderful, entertaining and the informative book has fill in of the like this empty for me, and in the fashion the one who founds them a lot of enjoyable.

There is enjoyed this like this is them directly be the Amazon and has ordered a sequela, Heroine, to continue my learning and entertainment

has tried to read some Greek myths before but would take really confused roughly those who was those who and how is all has related! This version is easy to read without being “dumbed down”. As well as a tragedy and the work there are some flashes of humour, both of some myths and Stephen Fry is commentaries ( does not interrupt some histories too much, and there is useful footnotes throughout). I have it that there is enjoyed really read this book, and to good sure can me see that it read it again - a lot of something I often say!
5 / 5
Ossia The fantastic book for the frank approximation to count again some myths and legends of some ancient Greeks. Calm really can remark his amour for a mythology and an investigation that do.

A reason for only four is does uneccessary, irrelevent nods to a current agenda of LGBT+ community. I am not sure reason each audience imagine the one who identifies like such has to do it the thing in everything does. I do not create in focus, think a LGBT+ the community is going behind with still seal. This in spite of, do not want to tarnish this revises too much. But please, times and of the places to be that they shout on some community and concealed is not in the book of myths in Greeks that has not had focuses bobo for sexualities (thats thanks to a victorians).

Has found Mythos whilst so only exploring by means of quell'I could buy to read afterwards. And they are I happy I stumbled by means of Stephen Fries is book. My first book for him and has considered to give is the gone so that it agrees read by means of books of ancient myth like the boy. I have been drawn to the east for an end of a first chapter. Doing any supposition that knows even anything on some Greek myths, Stephen Fries calm walks by means of like this easily like the boy takes read the bedtime history, giving you so only a right quantity of info still retain still when this or that Goddess, @Titán, Ninfa or Oceanid collected on again, to good sure that causes mischief.

Find surprised that so much of our popular words and the sentences derive myths and was downtrodden there is @@give once quickly approached an end of a book. Easy to read, easy to comprise and easy to go back to (to good sure I ) down a line. Absolutely recommended!

Stephen Fries says the good history, and knows very a lot of the one who the majority of people loves for way of accessibility and clarity. Of this point of view - to the equal that could nettle scholarly - ossia the tentativa very brave to explain a lot of these knots of myths never enough took to, or there is perhaps excepts of the one who weave was too dark. His dry asides is useful, more than the distraction, as they confirm that we are taking a same thing like that is to write - some myths require this!

Has been listening to an audio partorisca this book and drenching on a palpable emotion that emanates of the gentleman Fries is voice. As you Take like this excited roughly everything of charitable causes to cricket and darts? It is the he counting again of some histories of ancient time and partorisca me, presents the number of characters duquel has not been conscious or has had so only he shadowy has thought. Fill my evenings with marvels and of the philosophies that has not dreamed never of.

It was wonderful to read some histories agree of my infancy, but with Stephen Fries is inconfundible take on things. I know some reviewers has not liked him his informal fashion, but think likes of Fries is writing in general will enjoy this.
An investigation and the references are extended, as I can delve to some funds & of histories more want to, or so only read on by means of a main text.
Remorses to give was my infancy soyyths of Ancient Greece' and thinks that has found the worthy substitution :)

have the little of Stephen Fries is reservations to comprise autobiographies. My partner bought a second of some books of Greek mythology, but have them really has wanted to read in mandate. Calm does not have to that but have the bit of OCD for things like this lol. To dip it directly love these books. If you are to to the Greek mythology the taste, then of these books are for you. To good sure recommend these books.

Interpretation very simplistic of centuries of legend. It is done with amour and cure but with the tongue has stuck was the compliance. So only it lines it a surface of some histories but would be ideal for any the one who does not know him and loves the discharge of cradle

absolutely adores this book. They are always state interested to learn on history and of the Greek myths, but some histories can be like this complicated that is to dip always was. Stephen has there is broken some histories down and calm really help you to maintain the clue of the one who is the one who, reason there is the plot of greek of the and mythical creatures!
Really enjoys a way says some histories also. It is a lot of witty and when it begins to read I fight to dip a book down!
Wants to do more the books have taken!

I have loved a footnotes this has has linked words and of the sentences use today, with these of the and a time in that has lived it. I agreed of QI - as Stephen Fries once hosted. I found it informative and very easy to read without being to academician.

Ossia Splendid. There is a potential to be bit it dry but in Stephen Fries is the able hands is both learnt and involving. Easier That read that an original Homer or Ovid, this crisp setting out of some Greek myths and the characters leaves all these classical references to fall to plant, of an impact our day-the-tongue of day to one the one who is and that it is of art of Renaissance. Well value the bed.

It has been sold like the he counting again of some myths but in realities so only loans the one who has given birth tho that and like a greek advantages of tongue to the modern day english terms. Well If yours to this think but has been expecting this partorisca be more than the history. For example wheb taking on a clash of some @@@titan, a war is glossed on partorisca direct on like ceeated mountains and volcanoes.

The one who the delight Stephen Fries is. Ossia An entertaining and fascinating saying of some Greek Myths. If it have been able to read this while it studies a @subject @ would have been it much more enjoyable - and some facts would be remained with me. Usually when I have read it is my own alcohol listens in my boss - but Stephen certainly takes on is one. Súper Work, Stephen

His a lot of QI, easy to comprise, enough the jolly approximation the Greek mythology. This in spite of, sometimes chair that that can be quite patronising so that it say that it is to somewhere in a half among the serious book in Greek Mithology and Of the for dummies or to the to something likes concealed. Enjoyable Read in any case.

An emphasis remains in the annale that says more than the studio of a subject of the Greek mythology and I enjoyed it immensely! I have read books of studio on mythology to the equal that interest but is wonderful to read the ape he counting again of these myths, and in fact ossia a whole point of myths to the equal that are meant to be tale again to maintain them alive.

When it Was school age , a lot of moons, has loved some histories of Greek Mythology. But my reading has not been good and has been classified like this “so only another boy of the working class begun of for life of factory”. Today probably it was diagnosed dyslexic.

Arrived to finalise reading Stephen Fries is new book Mythos and his thrilling prose, boss in the reality and a magic way have said a yarns his active rekindled the passion had forgotten.

Well has finalised doing in the factory but any before I have achieved the terracing of honours in chemist and not doing in “face of coal”.

This book is the wonderful to redraft of some Greek myths. Stephen Fries headed to humanise and modernise excellent histories that a half reader could have been postponed for been due to his fashion of inaccessible writing. Still if are not interested particularly in of the Greek myths, would have to read this purely for a writing adds!
5 / 5
Because of the whoops in my part, has ordered this after buying a second first book... Time of advantage along planned, probably to be the new press, to good sure value a wait, and that looks forward to to devour the gentleman Fries is your conversational word for word. If you are the defender of Greek mythology, or master delve deeper, buy this book. Very happy.

Has expected more than Stephen Fries. It was really that looks forward to to read is one. No the patch on Neil Gaiman. Where it is an imagination and talent? He all felt the bit to held and that lacking of in detail and characterisation. Stephen sad.

So only to be clear: ossia the description for the legislation down a line GREEK edition of A Iliad for Homer, published for Jia Hu editors. Calm say you this- Jia Hu editors- so that you know to have a legislation one loves a Greek without any translation; if you want to one another calm class then loves the Loeb edition.
This does not have the skerrick of English translation anywhere in him, except a blurb in a rear page and a publishing information. Unless you want to translate he for calm, or simply prop he until to somewhere to be in him, and marvel on some mysteries of Greeks, does not buy it .
This has said, is the very directly advances any edition of atrocity of Homer Iliad. A source is the good clear one and is not presented like true old Greek, concealed is to say without empty among some words, but in a modern way- with empty and punctuation.
My Greek is... Well, it is not really, I so only one 100 paper of level. I have loved so only see the one who one before word REALLY was- is 'anger' for a way- and for the possess and translate some of him, from time to time, for a good of my soul. I took an hour to translate a sentence another day. Sad really, is not the?

Homer is difficult to read, but any to listen to law. If you are interested in modern literature, which roots of elderly Greeks aural tradition of poetry, buys books of audio and listen to a Aeniad, a Illiad, also to to the difficult writers like to them James Joyce Ulysses and poetry as 'Under A Forest of Tins.'

A translation retains some stylistic characteristics of an original Greek, while when being clear and accessible for readers without knowledge of Greek. Strongly I recommend it both for Homer coming for a first time and for those battling with some challenges of sympathetic of the Greek of Homer.

Homer is An Odyssey sees has been voted by the number of writers and critics like upper book to read so that a desquels there is shaped some world-wide and has thought. It is easy to see reason, and also reason this history is always be well has considered.

In this Amazon Classics Edition Odysseus here is translated likes Ulysses, and so that has the number of cross of editions-posted in this place, and yes somehow does not know a history, please agree this and dares he in alcohol. With A Iliad has read of a Trojan War, but here is on and for this have read of Ulysses' house of turn, which takes a lot of years. Whilst Is was like his edges are spent up seeing a lot of men that alive of a wealth of an earth and wooing his mother, Ulysses' woman.

With only two episodes recounted for another, a majority is as well as we are to say for Ulysses he, and for this have read of adventure and intrigue for our hapless hero. But a question always chairs in a backside of your alcohol – is this that really past, or was Ulysses more probably that there is dalliances with other women? Reason although his travesía has not gone too much long by means of a sea, as it looks to travel everywhere thwarted for some of the, in his endeavours to take house his fond woman.

So much, although ossia serious in structure and plotting, every time has read this chair like this is the big history, and a concealed would have been said in some taverns of a day, for any the one who was perhaps the little inebriated. So much, it loves to read this like this when being the past, or like the series of porkies, he no really @@subject, how is still enjoyable; this in spite of, if takings likes hard can come you up with ideas to explain to a missus reason has been bit it too long down a pub.

3. Telemachus cryings in his missing father; Penélope cryings in his missing husband - the one who is developed then to have is returned!

Has several references to characters and chances of A Iliad, as well as the tension to grow like this Odysseus hides of - then of plots - a murder of a suitors the one who are ruining his house. This in spite of, some the majority of famous histories of Odysseus the travesías are surprisingly brief.

Has chosen a translation for Fagles reason looks one the majority of effective use of English while maintaining faithful to a presentation of an original. It is fact very clear to read like this ossia the history has treated as much as sung, with the possibly has treated sections like this standalones - therefore to plot of repetition that is it gone in before.

This translation was published before in 1967. Each generation needs the new translation. Has think so until I have read this version. It is the glorious, lucidas, and emotional translation. It is notoriously difficult- a lot of nigh impossible- to try and retain a to, metre and integrity of the Greek original. A lot of turn he the prose and be fact with him. Lattimore Has tried to remain like this near of an original how is possible without mangling a clarity of an original and an English.

Is written with the clear english without colloquialisms that tugs in this distract of him. Épico In character really looks to spend it all the life - and yes would say his the page turner! It is one of mine favourite. Of then it was published in the first place, the investigation there is anticipated spend it and there is some my-translations. Pocolos But no in any way detracts is transmission one of the entity pressed of a storyline.

An Odyssey is the history adds , I only desire could read he in an original Greek, but as I can any one and am far too old to learn now, has looked for joint in that translate to buy. A translation all a difference, and there is like this there, the very good number, that is difficult to decide which partorisca buy. I have been said that Richmond Lattimore is was one of a better around, has taken a joint, has bought a Kindle version, and am happy has done them reasons thoroughly enjoyed it.

Has bitten Punctual partorisca you partorisca be asking my opinion are fearful! Reading this requires the sure quantity of devotion. At all bad with him according to which can say, but is that it is! Need of readers partorisca agree that Homer relates a history of a half to the equal that was!

Has the a lot of eclectic flavour in reading . So only I have read Harry Potter free and I amour Jilly Cooper, and much more, but also wants to all a Classics. An Odyssey is fantastic.

A for real brilliant interpretation of a world-wide classical, one of mine favourite of all the times Robert Fagles has added moves it poetic real to an English interpretation of a history adds, whilst maintaining a tongue and construction of an original, ossia the delve to an oral tradition of one An Odyssey and for the bed like this well can be be speak in far of days, is an a lot of material of ancient Greek myth. You recommend this to any the one who loves ancient Greece, still is one of a history adds

Ossia the fantastic translation . Unmissable! But it does not buy this edition - some flanges of a paper are deliberately has left ragged, and a paper is quality very poor . Probably This is to mean to do seats ancient. This am a lot annoying likes he hard to turn some pages, and add it disservice to an extraordinary quality of a translation. It takes another, seriously published, edition of Penguin. Unfortunately Fagles' other translations of a Iliad and a Aeneid resembles so only be available has taken.

Fagles The translation of his history of épico is excellent. Hard to believe this history writing done two years of the thousands still has relevance today. An idea to a better and worse of human behaviour. Very pleased with cost of mine. Rid in condition and of the good time to the equal that has described.

Is really quite phenomenal.
Has a lot the name is to agree but calm once take on that his estupefaciente to read. Although Odysseus is in fact the bit of the moaner, reflects a whole image of the Greek Hero. Homer is obviously a lot of talented and some histories have involved likes that of a Cyclops is a lot ready. Sometimes it goes back on he this in spite of- Homer will say something and suddenly the contradict, which is like this confusing he like this sounds.
In all the chance, would read east has been them, is the classical :)

Has read this after reading a Oxford the Classical version of the world of a Illiad. While a Illiad has some characters some charismatic plus and an energy and emotion of battles of epic, quarrelling to the ones of the and the heroes likes-Achilles, Ajax and Hector, an Odyssey is thinks a better bed. A fashion of the prose of this version is especially effective and ossia the ancient boys own adventure. His probably a lot something will read the day or like this, but his value an endeavour.

I have studied this book in a classical Greek original like a undergraduate. I have not used my ancient Greek in fact a lot of years for like this sadly has invested in an English translation.

Has given still this the good indication because a quality of some words is excellent.

My complaint is in a texture and quality of a paper. It feels economic and an interior of paper is beige and any aim. A coverage is not pleasant to resist. It feels like bad recycled paper.

Again, this is to be buy partorisca the fellow the one who has said to be like this expected and enjoyed it. They live this type of bed and has declared is the a lot of a partorisca add his collection.

This book is written in an accessible, user friendly way (I are the complete beginner with Greek mythology!) But there is the few omissions which would do it much easier to read:
An INDICATION of characters
A more extended diagram of like this some hundreds of characters are related to eachother
A glossary.
Has believed also that some last pocolos capitulate are slightly disorganised.
Has the little typo east and duplications also, that gives an impression has been launched joint in a last now.
Expects an author and the editor take this the consideration partorisca future editions.

A real disappointment, especially of the writer like good and witty likes Stephen Fries. Ossia twee, patronising, and feels like this was written in the haste partorisca fulfil to date of caducity of the editor. It fries it Is endeavours partorisca do these utmost myths look more modern and pertinent beds like the trendy the vicar that tries 'hang was' with some boys in his parish.

An entertaining and interesting book in the elderly Greek mythology written in the fashion that is recognisable likes Stephen Fries (if the has not looked never in QI). Originally, it have been looking for the book in elderly Greek mythology that is to be write in the modern way and would be both easy to comprise and fluent and think that this book has fulfilled these criteria. It have read reservation on Ulysses (Odysseus I thinks is known also as), Theseus, Hercules, Jason and a Argonauts and Perseus as well as seeing the few films have said roughly characters (although they are not covered really in this book because as it Fries partorisca mention you would require several books partorisca say his histories) and to the equal that has wanted to find the book that says other myths like a creation of some Of the Greeks, Titn and some of some less good characters known in to the Greek myth likes him Prometheus, Sisyphus, Persephone, but reason are not the classics scholarly no really chair that particularly enjoy read the ancient texts have translated like this the pound was so only in right and the ideal so that there is wanted.
Fries Uses some have has complicated words (although probably it recommend uses the dictionary) but I still found this to be, in a whole, easily understandable, adds it read and he ticked all some boxes so that I have looked for. It fries it is writing the fashion is (like images a man he to be) charming, intelligent and informative with the sense of talent and of course has abundance of footnotes to the equal that adds the extra bits of information likes them has said some histories. Also, it adds the section of sources in an end of a book so that they wish the delve further which thinks is an excellent idea.
Would recommend this book to any the one who has an interest in ancient Greek mythology (although any sure he is ideal for girls), especially wants to learn on some Of the Greeks, Titn and some the a lot of myths and the histories have associated with them but that using this like this drives definite has to that be view like a point of entrance to the fascinating subject.

I want to Stephen Fries. It is the glorious orator and artist and when I have learnt writes on some Greek myths, has been thrilled. Being born of the Greek parents and that have on grown with the passion partorisca these myths, has been excited partorisca read the new to take on them and of Stephen bloody Fries much less! It was excited like this I still peeled out of the little has bitten more partorisca a book of Audio. In this way it can have Stephen dulcet tones, reading his book of the mine so much has driven. Unfortunately, Stephen poor has directed partorisca turn this thrilling and gripping myths to the dreary ready of compraventa of some different types of titan and of the, with his names, that was apparently famous partorisca and in a process dipped partorisca sleep by means of sheer boredom. Have there is so only he roughly 15 of a way by means of, but am near partorisca give up.

Partorisca Any those who has done in fact a lot of years in some means comunicacionales, surely, has to be conscious of an old adage: the show does not say . The gentleman Fries is obviously ardent in these myths and very learnt of them. This in spite of, partorisca the plus that entertains king-saying of them suggests some looks of reader elsewhere.

There is enjoyed really read this book. You are not that it was with which but liked all one same.

It is Stephen Fries is partorisca bid partorisca result accepted like the 'national property'? If he like this has to that try harder. @I give that the gentleman Fries has done the career out of being arch and the little bit patronising, in the small amusing way, but here clashes with a subject @@@subject.

Are the mythology but he so that far it has directed it more in Nordic mythology, like this for the while it have been that loves read more than Greek mythology. I have known classical myths like the box of Pandora, but an account of a creation of a world-wide and of the humanity was new mine and was fascinating. I found it especially that interests what of some histories, recounted for first Greek philosophers of an increase of Christianity, has alike biblical counterparts. While a book – so it Fries been in an introduction – no tip to go to a meaning and interpretation of some myths, there was still historical and geographic commentaries intriguing that me think. There are some modern references to the equal that dips his own transfer and humour to some classical histories.

Has found a book slightly last to take to and concentrate on, for several reasons: I have loved to read all a footnotes to the equal that have been interested, but this has meant breaking out of a main text and that loses a flow. Also, because of a character of mythology when being episodes and short histories, has not taken absorbed in a history in a same way does with the novel. But, neither of these things reflect bad in an author, is so only a character of a subject. Search to structure a book so that it is like this cohesive and easy to follow like this possible, but with to the mythology does not go to be never the direct linear history. Another thing was a sheer the quantity of the names has launched was – impossible to agree the one who was the one who and the one who was a father of the one who and the one who the powers have had – but, again, the supposition concealed is so only a character of mythology.

Likes read a second book, Hero, but will have the pause goes in!

Has read the few descriptions is, and swings one of two ways, neither, is really well, or can find better accounts of some Greek myths. Personally, I have found this to be incredibly entertaining. While it can not go like this thorough likes another when it comes to a picture a big plus of mythology. That gives is the history . A history said in the very only way, which is entertaining, amusing and interesting! It sells some myths, painting the for real beautiful picture with his words ( takes a basics does VERY A lot). If you are new to some Greek myths, or is the lover that wants to listen the new account said like the history, entwined to the line of coherent time, concealed there will be you yearning more thoroughly would recommend that you take the copy of Mythos.
4 / 5
Has purchased this book with a version of audio, and to be sincere like wonderful like that the narrator is, honradamente the desire has had no. A version of audio fails a lot of paragraphs of a book, has different odd words and losing a lot of sentences. In fact it causes to the plot of subjects is trying use a two near in sync, how is impossible the majority of a time. If you are the reader the one who use an audio apresamiento to help absorb an information inside the book, then would not recommend squandering your money that purchases it.
Like him standalone the book is very good and the very interesting bed, which would recommend.
5 / 5
Can not say the one who this book is writing partorisca. Some tones of tongue and dives of complexes to very basic as if it is to separate writing for audience of adult and then for small boys. It finds like the series of incomplete thoughts. I do not have enjoyed and the desire could take my money behind.
4 / 5
Can appreciate that Stephen Fries tried to do with this book, but am sad of the says has not done for me. There have it very too much in a way of modern syntax and has launched when it portrays conversations, feels jarring and out of place in the book in this subject @@@subject. I create in an Ivy of signals is writing like this saying ' will bet ' in report to guess where Zeus east, does not mean to be cruel but I cringed in the law that piece of dialogue. One ordering of some histories is wise in a first half of a book, but the a bit chaotic results that look in some means last, as if simply trying cram like this in like this possible, or as if some histories were afterthoughts.

Fries Mentions the book for Edith Hamilton, and takes my last subject a lot well in a preface of his book. In a @@subject to write the book of histories of vastly different time to differ complexity etc., Governs out of any tentativa to unify them so that it has involved aying in my histories of own way that was in any mine felt and has had state said by writers add in of the ways have thought has adapted his @subject'. For my flavour in reading Mythos, Fries has (in my opinion) fallen foul of this feeling, apresamiento too much artistic licence with some histories and likes to portray him.

It is all bit it too jokey and juvenile. Unnecessarily Like this

Usually the bit of Greek mythology results the bit monotonous but ossia superbly fact. Alive iut in Greece and I have directed partorisca have some the Greek friends read it and want it. A partner has had his mother read it the one who teaches Greek mythology in colegiala and would like me use the like the help to teach still to take his pupils that the fall that chooses on the bit of English tongue on birds ,etc
5 / 5
This counting again of some Greek myths requires no leading knowledge and is said in Stephen Fries is way inconfundible. These characters can be of the but possess all a foibles of humans with his investigation for amour, revenge, anger, sulkiness, jealousies and vanities. You can read all some histories or simply diving in loving house in the particular deity. Any only is this reserves the must yes is the Hellenophile or lover of mythology but Fry also takes aches to aim a linguistic influence that some names of some of have them propiciado an English tongue - absolutely fascinating.
Also finds it that it amuses that a title is also a name cervecero Greek.
5 / 5
Are happy to read or listen the Greek Mythologies all day long; there is any way to do these histories that bores or tedious- no for me in all the chance. And in a same way, can listen Stephen Fries all day. Perhaps some could think that his tentativa to king-say he with some modern reference contrite. Well, Stephen Fries has any never has alleged fresco or hip. It is all tweed jackets and all some better for him-,a same time is also one of a first person to possess an Apple Mac computer in Londra. They are not one for audible books in that have always prefered- this in spite of prefer- books and real books, but this have hooked. Having roughly of one the majority of sumptuous and the good-looking histories have said the mine for Stephen Fries! It is exactly like this amazing as it conceal and more.

Has has had always the a lot of sketchy knowledge of some Greeks, and some myths of his existence and actions. This wonderful, entertaining and the informative book has fill in of the like this empty for me, and in the fashion that founds them a lot of enjoyable.

There is enjoyed this like this is them directly be the Amazon and has ordered a sequela, Heroine, to continue my learning and entertainment
5 / 5
has tried to read some Greek myths before but would take really confused roughly those who was those who and how is all has related! This version is easy to read without being “dumbed down”. As well as a tragedy and the work there are some flashes of humour, both of some myths and Stephen Fry is commentaries ( does not interrupt some histories too much, and there is useful footnotes throughout). I have it that there is enjoyed really read this book, and to good sure can me see that it read it again - a lot of something I often say!
4 / 5
Ossia The fantastic book for the frank approximation to count again some myths and legends of some ancient Greeks. Calm really can remark his amour for a mythology and an investigation that do.

A reason for only four is does uneccessary, irrelevent nods to a current agenda of LGBT+ community. I am not sure reason each audience imagine the one who identifies like such has to do it the thing in everything does. I do not create in focus, think a LGBT+ the community is going behind with still seal. This in spite of, do not want to tarnish this revises too much. But please, times and of the places to be that they shout on some community and concealed is not in the book of myths in Greeks that has not had focuses bobo for sexualities (thats thanks to a victorians).

Has found Mythos whilst so only exploring by means of quell'I could buy to read afterwards. And they are I happy I stumbled by means of Stephen Fries is book. My first book for him and has considered to give is the gone so that it agrees read by means of books of ancient myth like the boy. I have been drawn to the east for an end of a first chapter. Doing any supposition that knows even anything on some Greek myths, Stephen Fries calm walks by means of like this easily like the boy takes read the bedtime history, giving you so only a right quantity of info still retain still when this or that Goddess, @Titán, Ninfa or Oceanid collected on again, to good sure that causes mischief.

Find surprised that so much of our popular words and the sentences derive myths and was downtrodden there is @@give once quickly approached an end of a book. Easy to read, easy to comprise and easy to go back to (to good sure I ) down a line. Absolutely recommended!
4 / 5
Stephen Fries says the good history, and knows very a lot of the one who the majority of people loves for way of accessibility and clarity. Of this point of view - to the equal that could nettle scholarly - ossia the tentativa very brave to explain a lot of these knots of myths never enough took to, or there is perhaps excepts of the one who weave was too dark. His dry asides is useful, more than the distraction, as they confirm that we are taking a same thing like that is to write - some myths require this!

It was wonderful to read some histories agree of my infancy, but with Stephen Fries is inconfundible take on things. I know some reviewers has not liked him his informal fashion, but think likes of Fries is writing in general will enjoy this.
An investigation and the references are extended, as I can delve to some funds & of histories more want to, or so only read on by means of a main text.
Remorses to give was my infancy soyyths of Ancient Greece' and thinks that has found the worthy substitution :)

have the little of Stephen Fries is reservations to comprise autobiographies. My partner bought a second of some books of Greek mythology, but have them really has wanted to read in mandate. Calm does not have to that but have the bit of OCD for things like this lol. To dip it directly love these books. If you are to to the Greek mythology the taste, then of these books are for you. To good sure recommend these books.

Interpretation very simplistic of centuries of legend. It is done with amour and cure but with the tongue has stuck was the compliance. So only it lines it a surface of some histories but would be ideal for any the one who does not know him and loves the discharge of cradle

absolutely adores this book. They are always state interested to learn on history and of the Greek myths, but some histories can be like this complicated that is to dip always was. Stephen has there is broken some histories down and calm really help you to maintain the clue of the one who is the one who, reason there is the plot of greek of the and mythical creatures!
Really enjoys a way says some histories also. It is a lot of witty and when it begins to read I fight to dip a book down!
Wants to do more the books have taken!

Had listened of Greek mythology but never in any detail to the equal that have decided to read this book. Material Mythos done the wonderful work to cover a lot some main myths (that can say) in a reservation. I aimed that the plethora of words, the symbols and the appearances of modern life am derived of Greek mythology.

There is enjoyed this book because of a flowery tongue, entertainment. It looks this Fries the fun writing has had this and I have had certainly amused to read the.

Been seating in the bar of Greek beach for the pair of the days that read this wonderful king-saying of some histories that underpin so much of European literature. I have been adapted of a lot of histories that has agreed like the boy and promoted to enjoy a lot another the this was fresh uncle has fulfilled. There is enjoyed particularly these moments when you have been invited to see a hand of an ancient history teller giving words and experiences the one who live with us today.

This was bit it also ‘Stephen Fries' for my flavour. Some the ones of the Greeks are complicated and the gentleman Fries done his best to do them the little more comprehensible, which achieves to the big discharge. To That that did not like me was of some commentaries bobos as, for me, at all but nettle.

Has loved this book. I have known roughly some of some 'of the' mentioned here but discovered like this more roughly him. I have loved a footnotes this has has linked words and of the sentences use today, with these of the and a time in that has lived it. I agreed of QI - as Stephen Fries once hosted. I found it informative and very easy to read without being to academician.

Ossia Splendid. There is a potential to be bit it dry but in Stephen Fries is the able hands is both learnt and involving. Easier That read that an original Homer or Ovid, this crisp setting out of some Greek myths and the characters leaves all these classical references partorisca fall to plant, of an impact our day-the-tongue of day to one the one who is and that it is of art of Renaissance. Well value the bed.

Has been sold like the he counting again of some myths but in realities so only loans the one who has given birth tho that and like a greek advantages of tongue to the modern day english terms. Well If yours to this think but has been expecting this partorisca be more than the history. For example wheb taking on a clash of some @@@titan, a war is glossed on partorisca direct on like ceeated mountains and volcanoes.

His a lot of QI, easy to comprise, enough the jolly approximation the Greek mythology. This in spite of, sometimes chair that that can be quite patronising so that it say that it is to somewhere in a half among the serious book in Greek Mithology and Of the for dummies or to the to something likes concealed. Enjoyable Read in any case.

An emphasis remains in the annale that says more than the studio of a subject of the Greek mythology and I enjoyed it immensely! I have read books of studio on mythology to the equal that interest but is wonderful to read the ape he counting again of these myths, and in fact ossia a whole point of myths to the equal that are meant to be tale again to maintain them alive.

When it Was school age , a lot of moons, has loved some histories of Greek Mythology. But my reading has not been good and has been classified like this “so only another boy of the working class begun of for life of factory”. Today probably it was diagnosed dyslexic.

Arrived to finalise reading Stephen Fries is new book Mythos and his thrilling prose, boss in the reality and a magic way have said a yarns his active rekindled the passion had forgotten.

Well has finalised doing in the factory but any before I have achieved the terracing of honours in chemist and not doing in “face of coal”.

This book is the wonderful to redraft of some Greek myths. Stephen Fries headed to humanise and modernise excellent histories that a half reader could have been postponed for been due to his fashion of inaccessible writing. Still if are not interested particularly in of the Greek myths, would have to read this purely for a writing adds!

Because of the whoops in my part, has ordered this after buying a second first book... Time of advantage along planned, probably to be the new press, to good sure value a wait, and that looks forward to to devour the gentleman Fries is your conversational word for word. If you are the defender of Greek mythology, or master delve deeper, buy this book. Very happy.
