Foyles Notes

The Greek Gods and Goddesses: capricious, foolish, barbaric and with a massive appetite for life. Stephen Fry breathes new life into these well-known stories and characters, glazed with his wicked humour and unequalled gift to tell a story. I was lucky enough to hear Fry read from this book at Hay Festival and, I'd urge you to listen to the audio book as well as read it, because I now want Stephen Fry to read every book to me forever and ever. This is an absolute treasure of a book.

Jay, Birmingham

Synopsis

The Greek myths are the greatest stories ever told, passed down through millennia and inspiring writers and artists as varied as Shakespeare, Michelangelo, James Joyce and Walt Disney.They are embedded deeply in the traditions, tales and cultural DNA of the West. In Stephen Fry's hands the stories of the titans and gods become a brilliantly entertaining account of ribaldry and revelry, warfare and worship, debauchery, love affairs and life lessons, slayings and suicides, triumphs and tragedies.You'll fall in love with Zeus, marvel at the birth of Athena, wince at Cronus and Gaia's revenge on Ouranos, weep with King Midas and hunt with the beautiful and ferocious Artemis.Thoroughly spellbinding, informative and moving, Stephen Fry's Mythos perfectly captures these stories for the modern age - in all their rich and deeply human relevance.
