5* for the stories on all 3 volumes. Suitable for anyone over their sixth birthday - adults too. Interesting and educational, and the Greek/Roman myths are fascinating cultural background for anyone in the western world.

BUT a reduced rating for volume 3 because there is no list of titles so you have no idea which myth is where or even whether a particular myth is included. It's a needle in a haystack. Volume 1 and volume 2 - both with 2 cds - have a leaflet giving the titles of the individual myths, so you can pick and choose on these volumes. Volume 3 has 3 cds - good value, but no booklet.

It is useful to be able to choose a favourite: for instance, if in everyday life you come across a reference to eg. Orpheus or Heracles or some other mythological character, you can pick one track out to show that particular story. And some are more interesting/suitable for a child's interest than others.

So we end up not listening to volume 3 so much, which is a pity. The three volumes are set out as one big story of Atticus going to compete in a storytelling competition, so to complete the big story you need to hear the last few tracks of the last cd of Volume 3, but the individual stories can stand alone.

We thought it would never come out, so it was great when we managed to buy the last discs. It's lovely to listen to the stories of Atticus. It's brilliantly done, very intelligent and excellent entertainment for children and adults alike on long (or short) car journeys. My 9-year old actually knows more about ancient Greek history than his teacher now and both of my children keep re-reading the book, too, than listening to the stories over and over again. Because there are so many stories on so many CDs, it never gets boring, even though we've listened to them over 10 times! Would absolutely recommend it to anyone who loves stories and history.

Our family has been on tenterhooks for a year waiting for this, the final volume, of the lushly narrated Atticus the Storytellers 100 Greek Myths.

Our youngest (10) has had the previous two volumes as her bedtime listening since they came out, and was delighted when the 3rd volume arrived - especially as it is just as good as the previous two.

We now have hours and hours of brilliantly told tales that will entertain for years to come.

This is the second compilation of the myths that I have bought because I was begged!!
They are a selection of short stories pitched perfectly for children and they seem to be particularly popular at bedtime....

My 6 year old daughter loves this, and listens to it (and the other CDs in the series) most nights before she settles for sleep. The storytelling is superb, and the music peaceful and evocative. The whole family enjoys it on long car journeys, too.

I am delighted I made this purchase!
