Wow, when I first saw this cd I didn't expect to enjoy it as much as the first set which were brilliant, and had most of the better known heroes and their stories on them. Stories like Herakles and Jason, Theseus and Perseus, but I think this set of tales is even better! The sound quality is excellent and Ben Soames voice is really lively, bringing these tales to life. I listened to them on a long drive up to Scotland and I was really transported by the storytelling. The music is well chosen too and my kids 12 and 14 really liked them too. I had read versions of some of these stories before, but there are some great action sequences, like when Belerofon kills the Kimera and some beautiful descriptions, of Pegasus, the winged stallion and proper gory stuff, like when Acteon gets ripped apart by his hounds. The cruelty of the gods and goddesses is one of the things this set of stories really gets across well. The way the stories are told was a bit like Lord of the rings or even Conan the barbarian at times and even though they are supposed to be for kids I reckon anyone who likes legends and fantsy would enjoy them. Really good storytelling, a pleasure to listen to.
