Summary

For years, the Greeks have lain siege to the walls of Troy, the final act in the greatest war the ancient world has ever seen. Rivers of blood have been shed in the fight, but it takes one man to end the conflict: the brilliant strategist Ulysses, who defeats the Trojans with a simple trick - a wooden horse with an army inside. Victorious, Ulysses and his men prepare to make the long trip home to Ithaca. It will be an odyssey to remember.

At every step, Ulysses' path is blocked by warriors, monsters, and the gods. He battles a Cyclops, a sorceress, and worse, but this valiant leader never falters. For beyond the seas lies his beloved wife, and he will not rest until he is by her side once more.

Sequel to the 2015 Audie Award-nominated title Heroes, Gods and Monsters of the Greek Myths, one of the best-selling mythology books of all time.

Not nearly as good as Evslin's The Greek Gods.

This was a bit of a slog. Decentish captain who gets boastful and screws over his crew. Crew are stupid and deserve to die. Long slog of a story through to a decent ending.

Voices and such were very good. Greek Gods are petty and childish as ever.

the best story telling I have ever heard

Perhaps it's to soon , the images have yet to leave my imagination. Marvelous storytelling!
I have heard many master storytellers, but NONE finer than this. I shall give the highest compliment I can, I Shall pass this to my children.
