Hear about some of the most interesting, best-known myths from ancient Greece. In this elaborate guide, you’ll learn all about the dilemmas, relationships, and trials the Greek gods, goddesses, and other mythical creatures went through. Examples are:

  • All the trials of Heracles (Hercules), Theseus, and Perseus, the Greek epic heroes of mythology
  • The story of Daedalus and Icarus
  • Legends that include Pelops, Argonauts, and Heraclidae
  • The entire siege of Troy explained

This audiobook will examine how both myth and fact contributed to the culture and traditions of the Greek, and how these influences and stories continue to live on throughout the centuries!

Love and romance

Yeah, but there is a lot of fighting and blackmailing involved too in these Greek myths. Nice book, though.

Greeks had some crazy stuff

The romance, the sagas, the gods, the power, and the drama cannot be summarized in one sentence. Better just get the book.

I like these myths

Nothing else to say really, I just wanted to say I like them. Nothing more. Oh, so this review needs to be 40 characters or something. I reached it now.

You can't beat the Greek when it comes to mythology. They were some of the first ones. Weird stories, man.
