Holiday Gift Guide Pick "Mythos is filled with all
their favorite Greek myths, along with stunning illustrations and
notes from the author. It's a quick-witted retelling so beginners
and experts can both get something from it."
Holiday Gift Pick "Let waggish comic actor Fry be your ferryman as he retells, with the aid of eminent classical artwork, the ancient and strangely au courant Greek legends. Among them: Zeus and Hera's coupling of which Cry writes, 'Crackling with tension, impatience, and disgust, theirs was nonetheless a great marriage.'"
- O, The Oprah Magazine
"[Stephen Fry's] gloriously imaginative, erudite, warmhearted, and subversively funny retelling of the classic Greek myths...thoroughly enchanting and elucidating"
"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."
