Publisher's Summary

Get to know the Greek gods and goddesses, from the mighty Zeus, to the temperamental Poseidon, the beautiful Aphrodite, and every character from A to Z.

Who wouldn’t want to hear about Zeus and his command of lightning, Hades and how he found his bride, the wisdom of Athena, and so many other stories that capture the imagination.

These stories can do more than just entertain; they can also inspire and teach us lessons that were penned by the Greeks themselves.

Starting with the creation myth, this audiobook will take you through the stories of the Titans, introduce the Olympians, bring in the demigods, and sneak a peek at the monsters that made up the mythology.

You’ll learn who all the gods and goddesses were in relation to one another, mythological explanations for natural events, and why any of this still matters today.

In addition, you’ll discover: 

  • The names, powers, and significance of all the major Greek gods and goddesses
  • Rich stories based around the Greek pantheon
  • Moral lessons and cultural values important to the Greeks, preserved in their mythology
  • A brief history of Greek civilization and how they worshipped their gods and goddesses
  • Creatures of Greek mythology that still feature in modern tales today
  • And so much more Greek history!

Up on Mount Olympus, along the shores of the Mediterranean, and deep in the Underworld, gods, goddesses, demigods, and creatures linger in the mind and stories of an ancient culture.

This culture gave us science, philosophy, and a rich mythology that never stops enticing us.

To appreciate the power of their stories for yourself and become absorbed in a world so like and yet unlike our own, buy this audiobook now.

Couldn’t stop listening

Usually I pause my audible books here and there or will sometimes even divide them in a few days but it was not the case with this one. Greek mythology is a topic that i can never learn enough about and im always looking for new books to expand my knowledge on it, and Russo did a great job with this one. It has extensive and detailed information on all there is to know about Greek Gods, Goddesses and anything you can imagine in between. Im probably even getting the physical copy to actually read in a future again.

One of my most favorite

This work appears upon cursory examination to be an encyclopedia of greek mythology rather than a cursive narrative, but as such, it seems quite useful for reference.

Great book

The author obviously did his homework before putting this audiobook together. I found it be an intriguing amount of information. Although it was almost in the form on a verbal family tree.

Always wanted to learn about Greek Myths. This a great stepping-stone book, as I realized through this audiobook that Greek Mythology is more complexed than I originally thought it was.

Very entertaining!

I guess this is very cool! It is a little bit small of an audiobook in original timing. However, it's great to have in a bag for delivery.

Great Version of the Greek Mythology

This is a great book to start learning the Greek Myths. The stories are well-told and well-read. I still prefer Edith Hamilton's Mythology, but I think this version is a little easier to understand for a beginner.
