5.0 out of 5 stars Heroes
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 19 June 2019
These are absolutely wonderful retellings of Greek mythology. I’m now ordering the first volume, Mythos, to get some of the earlier tales, and I’m hoping Stephen Fry doesn’t stop here with Heroes but goes on to give us retellings of Homer’s Odyssey & Iliad and Virgil’s Aeneid, stories I’d certainly look forward to reading in the future.

I don’t think I’ve read retellings this good for a long time, perhaps since David Kossoff retold the Bible stories, which now seems very long ago indeed. Highly recommended.

I hope you find my review helpful.
