Murder by Death

I read cozy and historical mysteries, a bit of Paranormal/UF, and to mix it up, I read science and gardening books on occasion.

Mythos

Mythos - Stephen Fry

A quick review:

 

I debated between 4.5 and 5 stars because at about the 75% mark I started to drift because the abundance of names became hard to follow.  But it's Greek mythology; has anyone ever managed to compile the myths without all the names?  No, I doubt it, so, it hardly seems fair to penalise Stephen Fry because it lagged a bit.  I went the full 5 stars because the names thin back out at the end, and because it's narrated by the author, and Fry can read me any damn thing he wants and I'll listen - even though I have an issue with how he says 'issue'.  

 

If you have any interest in Greek myths but found them incomprehensible - take a look at Fry's effort; I think it's an excellent read for non-academics.
