Mythos
Mythos: A Retelling of the Myths of Ancient Greece | Stephen Fry
PREORDER Mythos, to be one of the first to discover Stephen Fry's magnificent retelling of the greatest myths and legends, ever told . . . No one loves and quarrels, desires and deceives as boldly and brilliantly as Greek gods and goddesses. They are like us, only more so - their actions and adventures scrawled across the heavens above. From the birth of the universe to the creation of humankind, Stephen Fry - who fell in love with these stories as a child - retells these myths for our tragic, comic, fateful age. Witness Athena born from the cracking open of Zeus's great head and follow Persephone down into the dark realm of Hades. Experience the terrible and endless fate of Prometheus after his betrayal of Zeus and shiver as Pandora opens her jar of evil torments. The Greek gods are the best and worst of us, and in Stephen Fry's hands they tell us who we are. Mythos - smart, funny, and above all great fun - is the retelling we deserve by a man who has been entertaining the nation for over four decades.

I struggled this week! Everything was just hard. But that‘s ok. Next week is a new week. Also, despite tripping over on my first run of the week and then nearly being chased by a cow, I got a PB for this evenings run, so not all bad!

Hestapleton Way to set a PB! Sounds like a great week to me! 1w
sudi You did so great on your goals especially the yoga one 👏👏👏. But i'm intrigued by the cow story, how did almost get chased by a cow? 1w
Hufflepuffle @sudi @jenniferw88 @IndoorDame On my usual route there is this big field which often has cows. There is a group of new young cows (with horns) and one was just staring me down. I carried on warily and it started pawing the ground with its hooves and edging towards me. So me being me waved at it and introduced myself and talked to it hoping it would realise I‘m not a threat but surprisingly that didn‘t help! 1w
Hufflepuffle @sudi @jenniferw88 @IndoorDame so I kinda froze while it stared me down and then decided I would edge slowly away and out of the field. It stared me down the whole time but luckily it didn‘t come after me! As I went I was trying to decided whether I would make it to the gate quicker than it would get to me!! 1w
sudi @Hufflepuffle sounds scary, that is one mean cow. You should probably not wave at it the next time you go through the same route, what if she remembers you ? 1w
IndoorDame eeek! Glad you got by safely. Hopefully you won't need to negotiate any more bovine peace treaties on future runs. 1w
wanderinglynn You may have struggled, but it looks like a great week to me! 🙌🏻 6d

Just finished listening to the #audiobook as preparation for seeing the live performance at #EdinburghInternationalFestival later this August 😍 Stephen Fry is obviously charming, witty and wise in this casual retelling and i can't wait to see the man himself conducting an evening of story-telling. We have tickets for MYTHOS: Men, though there will also be MYTHOS: Heroes & MYTHOS: Gods performances.

Whilst the stories themselves aren't exactly new, the layout and writing style makes this such an enjoyable read that I genuinely feel I've taken in more about Greek mythology than from any other book I've read. Would recommend to those both new to and already in love with Greek mythology! ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

Managed to get an #audiowalk in before the rain came.... went to the Post Office to send some #bookmail.

I think I‘m finally starting to enjoy listening to a book rather than reading it. This is my first ever audio book and my 3rd audio walk. I really wasn‘t sure at first but now I‘m getting into it. I‘ve chosen This is Going to Hurt as my next one - what do you all think? It might be more attention grabbing?

IamIamIam It's a great alternative when you can't just sit and read. I've found great books I probably wouldn't have picked up if the library didn't have it available on audio. Narrators are key so don't feel bad if they just don't catch you. There are lots to choose from! 3mo
Birdsong28 Stephen Fry is a good choice for your first one. Try the tagged book for your next one. It is so good, I was so sure before I bought it as I had seen it on here getting ok reviews but I think audio is a the best way to experience this book. 3mo
Birdsong28 Meant to read not so sure about the book lol! 3mo

One of my new favorite retellings of Greek myths!

review
JulietBoydAuthor

To my mind, this is everything a retelling of ancient myths should be. It has personality, humour and a lot of references to modern life, such as how the Greek gods have given us certain words. If you don't add something of yourself to the myths, then you're simply copying, which is pointless.

tjwill Have you decided which one? 6mo

It was a sickle. An enormous scythe whose great curved blade had been forged from adamantine, which means ‘untameable‘. A massive aggregate of grey flint, granite, diamond and ophiolite, its half-moon blade had been refined to the sharpest edge. An edge that could cut through anything.

5/5⭐

I absolutely adore this book! Fry's way of writing is such a pleasure to read and it made the myths very... reachable, I guess that is the best word for it. It made them come alive even more.
I will definitely be rereading this one many, many times in the future and I will get my hands on the second book, Heroes, for sure!!

Urania - Muse of Astrology Polyhymnia - Muse of Song (or mindfulness as Fry puts it, which I prefer)
Clio - Muse of History Erato - Muse of Erotic Poetry Calliope - Muse of Epic Poetry Thalia - Muse of Comedy Melpomene - Muse of Tragedy

Lemme start by saying that despite his charms I often find Stephen Fry to be a pompous, problematic snob. HOWEVER, if I was ever gonna let him give me a lecture it‘d be on this subject. And it‘s a good instinct! Fry loves these stories and his love breathes all the life into them they deserve. Funny, unpretentious, accessible, and entertaining.

This was a fun and surprisingly quick read. If you already know a lot about Greek mythology you might not learn much new but Stephen Fry‘s way of telling the myths is still fun, especially when he‘s imagining dialogues 😄. I especially enjoyed all the background stories for many words coming from Greek that we still use today. The only thing I really would‘ve wished for is an index to keep up with all the names and relations.

Cinfhen Right language @Chrissyreadit I‘m getting better at reading & understanding but I‘m a total #WorkInProgress😉 10mo
Chrissyreadit @Cinfhen wow! I have friends who went to Hebrew school as children and my Aunt spoke Hebrew, although I believe her family primarily spoke Yiddish. (My great grandparents were from Eastern Europe) Good for you learning as an adult! 10mo
See All 22 Comments
Cinfhen My grandparents and great grandparents also spoke Yiddish but not necessarily Hebrew @Chrissyreadit I moved to Israel 4 years ago so learning Hebrew is kind of less of a choice and more of a means....I‘ve gotten pretty good with the restaurant menus 😊😜but overall my Hebrew sucks!! 10mo
Chrissyreadit @Cinfhen do you speak Hebrew? 10mo
Chrissyreadit @Cinfhen I did not realize you lived in Israel! Do you like it? Funny fact... when I was young I had a pen pal from Israel- she sent me my first “gift” bookmark! 10mo
Chrissyreadit @Cinfhen do you use English a lot in Israel or more Hebrew? I‘m always fascinated by languages. I was born to be a polyglot but am unfortunately monolingual. 10mo
Cinfhen Ha!! That‘s funny @Chrissyreadit yay for pen pals!!! I‘d say I‘m about a third grade level Hebrew 🙄it‘s been an interesting journey xx I love the community and I‘ve made some really wonderful friendships. I enjoy the weather and Mediterranean cuisine but it‘s not the easiest place to live....Culturally, geographically - it‘s very different than suburban Pennsylvania 😉 10mo
Cinfhen Yes!! Where I live the community is 70% Anglo speaking... so it‘s American, British, Australian, Canadian, South African ~ which makes it much easier to communicate @Chrissyreadit 🙏🏻 10mo
Chrissyreadit @Cinfhen I bet! It is so interesting culturally! Do your kids like it? Is this your forever home? BTW, I could say the same about WV- culturally difficult, not the easiest place to live, but still some great community and friendships. 😏Now I‘m even more curious! 10mo
Chrissyreadit @Cinfhen I love that it is so culturally diverse but all in Israel- do most people jump into an Israel lifestyle or are there touches like restaurants or food from other countries but Kosher? 10mo
Cinfhen Food wise israel is richly diverse and has become quite a culinary destination. Some chefs adhere to the kosher guidelines but there are still plenty of places that serve non-kosher food or mix meat & dairy together in their cooking. @Chrissyreadit I think for me the hardest part is the mindset...I think like an “American” where manners are important and you think about the whole and not the self. 👇🏼 10mo
Cinfhen I don‘t want to stereotype or generalize but I find majority of Israeli‘s are rude or maybe a bit abrasive 10mo
Cinfhen I think these are people who are constantly on edge. Unfortunately for a small, young country they have seen plenty of wars & conflicts @Chrissyreadit ☹️ (edited) 10mo
Cinfhen I‘m not sure about my forever home but for now we are navigating and learning to appreciate the history that this country offers. @Chrissyreadit and my kids will probably be in therapy for years!!! I took them from a suburban community and dropped them in a desert😂😂 but it‘s all good!! (edited) 10mo
Chrissyreadit @Cinfhen thanks for answering my questions! I‘m always curious about life in other places. Do your kids see themselves traveling more? I would love for them to have opportunities to increase seeing the world in terms of lifestyle not just vacation. 10mo
Cinfhen My kids are somewhat older @Chrissyreadit my oldest is 25, she stayed behind in NY & didn‘t move with us. My middle child is 23, he did uni here but moved back to the states last year. He‘s currently working for a start up and lives in LA & my youngest is turning 17 on Sunday. He‘s in high school ( 11th grade) Id say all 3 of my kids are extremely independent, adventurous, well rounded and world travelers. They see the world globally 10mo
Cinfhen In that regard I feel like we‘ve given our children a gift to explore and be open to new possibilities and opportunity but it‘s hard to be so scattered 😢😢😢 10mo

Cinfhen Awwww, thank u my friend @TrishB 😘😘😘 it‘s tough being a parent 10mo
Chrissyreadit Yes! I can‘t bear the thought that they will move on even while I work to prepare them for it! But then I think time to explore and regroup when it‘s time for grandkids. Where will your youngest go to college? 10mo
Cinfhen He‘s actually talking about doing university in Israel @Chrissyreadit which makes me happy...because if all 3 kids end up in the states, I‘m out of here 🦋🦄🕊 10mo

This #awesomeread by #stephenfry at his finest, retelling, reintroducing, reimaging the #greekmyths via #mythos I love this witty, funny, irreverent collection of the tales of the Greek Gods. I've read the classics, and yet I think Fry has managed to capture the spirit of those times when the gods where real, exceptionally well. #booksniffer #itouchmyshelf #amreading #booksbooksbooks #booklover #bookworm #bibliophile #literature #storytelling
