Best book I've had in a while.

I've always been interested in Greek mythology, but didn't know the full story of how the gods came to existence. I really liked the way the reader told the stories.

Educational and interesting

I didn't know so much about Greek mythology. I had heard a few stories at school or college, but this audiobook has opened my eyes to the immense world of the Greek gods and goddesses. Those people had some pretty weird beliefs, and Perseus was supposedly crawling with these superheroes? Wow. Interesting to think about the fact that people believed in such things.

Know about Greek Mythology

I was impressed and definitely not disappointed. I loved having all the gods and goddesses lined up and expanded on in a way that made sense to me and that connected the dots in an interesting way.

Short and relevant

This is a really good audio book. It took me like 5 hours and 42 minute to listen and I didn't feel like I lost any minute while listening it.
