Stephen Fry has made Greek mythology cool for the masses. Troy is the final book in his Mythos trilogy of books. I would really recommend picking up the audio version of the three books. Mythology has always been delivered orally in the old days. I heard both Mythos and Heroes and I can assure you they were wildly entertaining. Fry’s delivery of the tales is amusing when he gets into character in the audiobook versions. I am really looking forward to Troy, it promises to be a great read as much as the two previous two books. There are still many great stories to be told in Troy. I am really fond of the hardcover editions of the books. You will not regret getting these books. The stories are timeless, Stephen Fry’s interpretations of the ancient myths are a bolt of lightning of freshness. He is a master of words.
In this brilliant conclusion to his bestselling Mythos trilogy, legendary author and actor Stephen Fry retells the tale of the Trojan War.
Full of tragic heroes, intoxicating love stories, and the unstoppable force of fate, there is no conflict more iconic than the Trojan War. Troy is the story of the epic battle retold by Fry with drama, humor, and vivid emotion. Achilles, Hector, Odysseus, Helen, their lovers, and their mortal enemies all burn bright in Fry’s compelling prose. Illustrated throughout with classical art inspired by the myths, this gorgeous volume invites you to explore a captivating world with a brilliant storyteller as your guide.
