The Greek myths are amongst 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. 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. Spellbinding, informative and moving, Stephen Fry's Mythos perfectly captures these stories for the modern age - in all their rich and deeply human relevance.… (mere)

So after listening to the Odyssey (fabulous), then Madeline Miller’s Circe (highly recommended) and her Song of Achilles (also highly recommended), I’d planned to read Hesiod, Ovid, and more when I stumbled across this.

I really enjoyed Fry’s approach in retelling/reimagining the Greek myths. I listened to his reading of his work and I’m sure if I had read it in print I would have heard it in his distinctive voice anyway.

One aspect that I appreciated was his explication of the etymology of many of the words we use today, even if he did go off a tangents a wee bit. Only four stars since I found myself having to work to finish the last portion; I’m not sure why this was so; maybe too much of the same thing, perhaps. Though I thought the appendices were informative.

I always enjoyed Greek mythology, but Stephen Fry adds his own flavor to the stories and legends and make them even more enjoyable. Listening to the audio book was so much fun. ( )

I don’t know much about Greek mythology except some names, but it’s always fascinating to read the bloody tales. But my memory is poor and I can’t remember the details even if I’ve read some of them many times. Even now after finishing this book, I can’t say I remember much except the most famous ones but I listened to this audiobook for the experience. Stephen Fry is an excellent, hilarious and witty narrator and I really enjoyed the way he told the stories in this book. ( )

Stephen Fry és d'aquells britànics educats en la tradició clàssica per un dels "collegues" de la Universitat de Cambridge, penso amb ell com un cavaller decimonònic que hagués estat totalment al seu lloc prenent un whisky amb un jove Winston Churchill en un club de la City.
Gràcies a "l'amor a primera vista", segons les seves paraules, per la mitologia grega, i el seu bagatge cultural, ens ha escrit un recull de part de la mitologia grega preciós en la seva redacció.
Els mites grecs són alhora una cosmogonia i una sèrie de faules moralitzants protagonitzades per déus, titans, nàiades, nimfes i herois... farcides de violència, sexe, traïcions i gelosia.
Mereix una menció la traducció al català d'Anna Llisterri. ( )

Even those readers who are not enamored of Greek mythology will be captivated by Fry's recanting of beloved stories from Ovid and Homer, enhanced by his own irreverent asides and footnotes. His overview of the realms of gods, goddesses, minor deities, and their interactions with the humans who are always at a disadvantage is entertaining enough, but where he really shines is in the first ages of Titans and Giants, before the birth of Zeus. Particularly touching is the legend of Prometheus, giver of fire to humans, who defies Zeus and destroys their joyous friendship in the process. Fry points out, time and again, where the gods made mistakes and also refused opportunities to show remorse and make reparations. A truly delightful collection from a storyteller whose warm-hearted, deep dive behind the standard retellings is unique and will be savored by any aficionado of the genre. ( )
