Greek romance and drama

There are so many myths out there that are worth studying, and Greeks are one of the biggest ones in this realm.

Yes!

I thought this was an extensive bundle of good stories and heroes that they try to describe, even though they are all fictional.

Your typical Greek myths

Troy, Hades, Ikaros, and others are described in this double book or bundle. Very enjoyable to listen to all the stories.

Greeks

The mythological creatures and the epic characters in these books make sense. I had this stuff in high school, but audiobooks are the way to go.

British accent

I liked hearing a true British accent, as opposed to all the American narrators on Audible. This one stood out.

Intriguing

The Greek myths apply to many words today and many habits and sciences that have been left over by it. Interesting read, I mean... listen.

Know what you get

If you like mythology, this is it. If you don't like a British accent, don't get it. But inn my eyes, the narrator was really good.

Surprisingly good

The myths from the ancient world always fascinated me. Great day and age that we can just sit back and listen to those stories. Funny they believed these things back then.

The Greek roots

Hey, all the language and all the terms in our science we derived from Greek.... some of those stem from the myths. Like narcissists being from the Narcissus myth, etc.

I can't believe this is out there! So cool! Skip all those hours in high school listening to lectures and get this one to find about Greek myths at your own time.
