Mythos

By author
Narrated by: Stephen Fry
Length: 15 hours 24 minutes

Mythos

“Brush up on your classical mythology painlessly with the help of Stephen Fry! The Greek gods are brought to life with a fresh perspective and loads of uncensored naughty bits served with a side of pop culture references. Best enjoyed by listening to the Libro.fm audiobook to fully appreciate the storytelling aspect of these tales that were meant to be enjoyed in the oral tradition. But hard to resist the gorgeous package of the cloth bound hardback. I own both. :)”
