Review:
"If you ever thought Greek mythology was intimidating, Stephen Fry's approach will appeal to you, as he explains the myths in casual terms relating them to modern-day people or events (yes, there's even a reference to Morrissey). There is also plenty of just generally funny commentary that had me laughing out loud and sharing passages with my family."
-GeekDad

"[Stephen Fry's] gloriously imaginative, erudite, warmhearted, and subversively funny retelling of the classic Greek myths...thoroughly enchanting and elucidating"
-Brain Pickings
