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.

Ik heb het boek met veel plezier gelezen. De humor die Stephen Fry erin heeft verwerkt maakt het heel wat lichter dan wat je bij oud-Griekse mythes verwacht.

Maar soms wordt het zo ook wat te licht, hoewel zijn eigen visie en interpretatie heel interessant is. Misschien had Stephen Fry dit aspect in het schrijven wat meer naar voren mogen brengen, zijn eigen interpretatie.

Wat mij brengt naar mijn laatste opmerking. Naarmate het boek vordert krijg ik toch het gevoel dat het een opeenvolging, een lijst is van mythologische verhalen, wat waarschijnlijk ook wel voor een stuk de bedoeling is, maar door wat meer in te gaan op eigen interpretaties van de verhalen, zou er een enorme meerwaarde gegeven worden aan die verhalen. Dat bindende element mis ik een beetje.

Maar toch, een heel toffe leeservaring! ( )

Stephen Fry shines through with his wit and humour as he devotedly retells these ancient myths. I thoroughly enjoyed his book. ( )

The most difficult thing whilst reading Mythos is avoiding Stephen Fry's voice reading it to you in your head. But no, this is not a complaint nor do I find it the least bit irritating. It's amusing in fact. And for any starters and those of us refreshers of known Greek myths, Mythos is a splendid delight. Not only does Fry retells the myths in a linear fashion as much as it allows but he also spends enough amount of time to give as much trivia (ex. Melissa means 'bee' in Greek, or how some Greek words gave birth to some English words we still use today, or how some leads to Scientific and planetary names, it is Pandora's jar not Pandora's box, and multiple times he connects some of it to Shakespeare's works and once even references a Sam Cooke song whilst other pop culture references are also made) in the footnotes. Some are even further polished with the help of additional information in the Appendix section. There are also photos of known paintings and sculptures alike inspired by the Greek tales. It is worth noting he starts from Chaos and ends in King Midas' ass ears. In between them are tales of gods and goddesses', at times illogical, at times frightening, wrath and blessing, Zeus' well-known illicit liaisons, and a number of creative metamorphoses. Unfortunately but understandably, he doesn't include the Iliad and the Odyssey here.

Each of the myth is written with such vibrance, such wit, such humour, and such charm I can't help but want more from this collection. Refreshing my memory with some beloved Greek tales from high school, with a brilliant teacher I was mostly fond of, has brought me back to my teenage years. In fact once the same teacher divided our class into four groups to compete and answer Greek mythology questions. I can't forget how I didn't manage to answer the question given to me due to mental block and anxiety despite her hint about Hermes' Roman name, Mercury, by reminding me of the Hippocratic staff. Now, I can't ever forget Mercury. Stephen Fry is really a one-of-a-kind storyteller. Mythos is never to be missed, a much needed multivitamin for the mind. ( )

Would be a good reference book as I bet he gets it all correct, but quite apart from his writing style (which is just not for me) it got harder and harder to pick it up again every time I put it down. Just got bored and there was too much else more exciting to read. ( )
