Stephen Fry captures the wondrous stories of Greek mythology and its relevance for the modern reader.
The Greek myths are among the most influential stories ever told, passed down through the millennia. They have inspired writers and artists from Shakespeare to Michelangelo and from James Joyce to Walt Disney. The stories are deeply rooted in the DNA and tradition of Western culture. In Stephen Fry's hands, the tales of the titans and gods become an entertaining and well-told introduction to warfare, rivalry, worship, eroticism, love, life wisdom, triumphs and tragedy.

"In an age characterized by hasty forgetting and gross superficiality, it is an important gesture that Fry makes with Mythos, which aims to retell the most important Greek myths so that everyone is welcome; it should be a pleasure. Can be recommended both to people and , young and old, knowledgeable as well as ignorant." The weekend newspaper

"Mythos by Stephen Fry is a humorous and epic retelling of the Greek myths ... Mythos was an excellent reading experience and at the time of writing the best of the year. So if you're into Greek tales that can do a little more than Homer's trivial verse, then Mythos a fine addition to your collection.", 5 out of 5 stars.
