Publisher's Summary

Explore the captivating myths of the Greek gods and heroes! 

Although the Greek gods and goddesses were powerful immortal beings, they were in many ways still very like the humans who worshiped them. The gods and goddesses are stricken with jealousy; they fall in love; they get angry when they feel slighted; and bestow gifts when they are honored. Likewise, the heroes are larger than life: they’re stronger, faster, and more skilled than ordinary mortals, but they are still subject to pain, illness, and death.

This audiobook on Greek mythology will take you on a captivating journey, so you can experience the enjoyment of the entertaining stories while also learning about the Greek myths that lie at the roots of Western language, culture, and civilization.

Narrator

If this book was narrated by a different person it would have been great. The narrators southern accent was so pronounced, it sounded as though he was just butchering all of the characters names. I found it hard to follow along or even concentrate on what he was saying. It sounded like Dr. Phil.

GREAT…

I loved reading and listening to each story of the Gods and Goddess. I loved how each one was separated and focused on one at a time.
