5 out of 5 (1 rating)


Most of us would like to know the Greek myths better than we do, and in this book Cambridge academic and BBC presenter Nigel Spivey re-tells the Greek myths as the spellbinding stories they are.

In exciting prose he tells of Jason and the Argonauts and the travels of Odysseus, of Oedipus's crime and Orpheus's excursion into the underworld among many more.

Review by

This was an excellent book. It makes the Greek myths accessible to the average American and shows them for the awesome stories that they are. I would recommend it to anyone who wants to know about the myths but hasn't the fortitude to wade through Homer's version.
