Mythos
Mythos: A Retelling of the Myths of Ancient Greece | Stephen Fry
PREORDER Mythos, to be one of the first to discover Stephen Fry's magnificent retelling of the greatest myths and legends, ever told . . . No one loves and quarrels, desires and deceives as boldly and brilliantly as Greek gods and goddesses. They are like us, only more so - their actions and adventures scrawled across the heavens above. From the birth of the universe to the creation of humankind, Stephen Fry - who fell in love with these stories as a child - retells these myths for our tragic, comic, fateful age. Witness Athena born from the cracking open of Zeus's great head and follow Persephone down into the dark realm of Hades. Experience the terrible and endless fate of Prometheus after his betrayal of Zeus and shiver as Pandora opens her jar of evil torments. The Greek gods are the best and worst of us, and in Stephen Fry's hands they tell us who we are. Mythos - smart, funny, and above all great fun - is the retelling we deserve by a man who has been entertaining the nation for over four decades.

Very I formative book on the Greek Gods. Peppered with just the right amount of humor here and there to keep you interested. If you like learning more about Greek Gods and their stories this is a great read and I would recommend it.

Thoroughly enjoyable retelling of a selection of Greek myths, particularly those dealing with the creation of the gods and the explanations for natural phenomena. I particularly liked his digressions into the meaning of Greek and Latin words and how we can see many of those words in modern English.

Tamra I‘m so anxious to get this - I ordered it! A rare treat for me this year! 3w

#BookReport A bit more reading time this week. I finished and reviewed West Coast & A Lost Lady & I also finished 2 bedtime romances (not worth naming). I'm about 2/3s through Mythos which is more consistently entertaining than Bullfinch's version of the stories, but I doubt that I'll do any better at remembering them. Made a start on The Days of In Between. #WeeklyForecast finish those to and hopefully also finish There Was Still Love for #LMPBC

Tamra Thank you for posting Mythos! I had totally forgotten I wanted to read it - will be getting soon! (edited) 3w
Cinfhen I forgot half of what I “learnt” regarding Mythos but it was so fun to listen too!! I think I could listen again and it would be just as much fun. You had such a great reading week! (edited) 3w
erzascarletbookgasm I‘m interested to know how The Days In Between fares. 3w

CarolynM @Tamra If you are interested in the Greek myths I'd definitely recommend it. Stephen tells a good story. I also like all his footnotes showing where the names of the characters are also Greek (and sometimes Latin) words from which English words have been derived. I just wish I could remember more of the details. 3w
CarolynM @Cinfhen When I read Bullfinch (30 years ago) it went in one ear and out the other - I've only ever been able to remember one story and Stephen hasn't mentioned that one yet🙂 It's been a better week for reading than the last few. (edited) 3w
CarolynM @erzascarletbookgasm So far so good. I'll let you know🙂 3w

Had to do this one via audio because Stephen Fry!! Both the content and performance were perfection. Something to go alongside Gaiman‘s Norse Mythology in my collection!

I didn‘t actually listen on today‘s walk in the mountains, but it was too dark to take a pic on last night‘s audio walk and much less pretty, so here‘s pretending. 🎧

“Sorrowing at the death of her beloved servant, Hera took Argus‘s hundred bright eyes and fixed them onto the tail of a very dull, dowdy old fowl, transforming it into what we know today as the peacock—which is how the now proud, colorful, and haughty bird came forever to be associated with the goddess.” 🦚

ljuliel That sounds like me. I stop Audible due to expense , thinking I‘ll just borrow library audiobooks, then Audible has a new one that I really want, and the library wait is 6 months, so I join back up again and again. I think I should just keep my membership since resistance is futile. 1mo
Aimeesue @ljuliel Audible is half price for the first 3 months right now, which was a major factor. But really, ONE audiobook a month + some pretty lame Audible Originals? I doubt I'll keep the membership past 3 months. I have 6 Library cards, though (local counties reciprocate with mine) so I don't usually have to wait very long for ebooks or audiobooks. Aid I don't audio listen that often. Still have tons of audio bks from the last time I was a member! 1mo
ljuliel Yes, I have hundreds I have yet to listen to. I know one book a month isn‘t much, but when I see how much kindle books are now, they‘re both about the same cost for me. I usually read on kindle if not audio. It‘s kind of a toss up. It‘d be best to use only the library, money-wise . 1mo

Fry covers the Greek origin myths from creation through the Titans and then the major gods plus a lot of fun smaller ones like the Muses. As always he has a gentle wry style with the odd pop culture reference or double entendre. A light and easy way to read about Greek myths. I think I‘ll get the next one on audio though because his voice is 😍.
3.5 stars. It probably would be 4 except I‘m a little bit in love with Ovid who overshadows this 😜

Cinfhen I own both book and audio and I‘m looking forward to reading/listening in the coming weeks 3mo

Hufflepuffle @sudi @jenniferw88 @IndoorDame On my usual route there is this big field which often has cows. There is a group of new young cows (with horns) and one was just staring me down. I carried on warily and it started pawing the ground with its hooves and edging towards me. So me being me waved at it and introduced myself and talked to it hoping it would realise I‘m not a threat but surprisingly that didn‘t help! 4mo
Hufflepuffle @sudi @jenniferw88 @IndoorDame so I kinda froze while it stared me down and then decided I would edge slowly away and out of the field. It stared me down the whole time but luckily it didn‘t come after me! As I went I was trying to decided whether I would make it to the gate quicker than it would get to me!! 4mo
sudi @Hufflepuffle sounds scary, that is one mean cow. You should probably not wave at it the next time you go through the same route, what if she remembers you ? 4mo

Just finished listening to the #audiobook as preparation for seeing the live performance at #EdinburghInternationalFestival later this August 😍 Stephen Fry is obviously charming, witty and wise in this casual retelling and i can't wait to see the man himself conducting an evening of story-telling. We have tickets for MYTHOS: Men, though there will also be MYTHOS: Heroes & MYTHOS: Gods performances.

#litsywalkers

Managed to get an #audiowalk in before the rain came.... went to the Post Office to send some #bookmail.

I think I‘m finally starting to enjoy listening to a book rather than reading it. This is my first ever audio book and my 3rd audio walk. I really wasn‘t sure at first but now I‘m getting into it. I‘ve chosen This is Going to Hurt as my next one - what do you all think? It might be more attention grabbing?

IamIamIam It's a great alternative when you can't just sit and read. I've found great books I probably wouldn't have picked up if the library didn't have it available on audio. Narrators are key so don't feel bad if they just don't catch you. There are lots to choose from! 7mo
Birdsong28 Stephen Fry is a good choice for your first one. Try the tagged book for your next one. It is so good, I was so sure before I bought it as I had seen it on here getting ok reviews but I think audio is a the best way to experience this book. 7mo

To my mind, this is everything a retelling of ancient myths should be. It has personality, humour and a lot of references to modern life, such as how the Greek gods have given us certain words. If you don't add something of yourself to the myths, then you're simply copying, which is pointless.

It was a sickle. An enormous scythe whose great curved blade had been forged from adamantine, which means ‘untameable‘. A massive aggregate of grey flint, granite, diamond and ophiolite, its half-moon blade had been refined to the sharpest edge. An edge that could cut through anything.

I absolutely adore this book! Fry's way of writing is such a pleasure to read and it made the myths very... reachable, I guess that is the best word for it. It made them come alive even more.
I will definitely be rereading this one many, many times in the future and I will get my hands on the second book, Heroes, for sure!!
