Product description

Review

This is a spirited retelling of stories that Fry clearly knows and loves (The Times)

Assured and engaging. The pace is lively, the jokes are genuinely funny, and Fry once again proves himself a master of great learning worn lightly (Guardian)

Here, indeed, be monsters, myriad adventures and machinating gods. Fry is a personable and passionate narrator (Mail on Sunday)

Fry brilliantly retells the dramatic, funny, tragic and timeless tales of these heroic men and women in all their grit and glory. Filled with white-knuckle chases and twisted labyrinths, impossible puzzles and blood-curdling monsters (Northern Ireland Homes & Lifestyle)

Joyfully informal yet full of the literary legacy. The Greek gods of the past become relatable (Guardian (on 'Mythos'))

The best thing he's written since his superb first novel . . . entertaining and edifying (Telegraph (on 'Mythos'))

A rollicking good read (Independent (on 'Mythos'))

Perfect for the 21st Century. Ebullient, funny, Fry retells the Greek myths with elegance (The Times (on 'Mythos'))

A wondrous new immersion in ancient stories we only thought we knew. Brilliant, funny, erudite, inventive, surprising and enthralling (Richard North Patterson (on 'Mythos'))

Arguably the greatest living Englishman (Indendent on Sunday)

From the Inside Flap

There are heroes - and then there are Greek heroes.

Few mere mortals have ever embarked on such bold and heart-stirring adventures, overcome myriad monstrous perils, or outwitted scheming vengeful gods, quite as stylishly and triumphantly as Greek heroes.

In this companion to his bestselling Mythos, Stephen Fry brilliantly retells the dramatic, funny, tragic and timeless tales of these heroic men and women in all their grit and glory.

Join Jason aboard the Argo as he quests for the Golden Fleece. See Atalanta - who was raised by bears - outrun any man, before being tricked with golden apples. Soldier through the twelve Labours of Heracles, shiver in terror under the stone-cold gaze of the dreaded Gorgon, Medusa, and witness wily Oedipus solve the riddle of the Sphinx.

Filled with white-knuckle chases and twisted labyrinths, impossible puzzles and blood-curdling monsters, acts of base cowardice and genuine bravery, Heroes is the story of what we mortals are truly capable of - at our worst and at our very best.
