Audiobook Review for the Library Journal - Mythology

Hamilton, Edith. Mythology. 12 CDs. unabridged 14 1/2 hours. Hachette Audio. 2013. ISBN 9781611135121.

A masterpiece like no other, Edith Hamilton's Mythology, is a timeless collection of Roman, Greek, and Norse myths that continues to inspire and delight millions. Stories of the gods and heroes are still cornerstones in Western culture and this powerful book weaves many of the classic tales together in one cohesive, engrossing, and thoroughly enthralling collection. The narrator, Suzanne Toren, does an amazing job of delivering this classic in an engaging and insightful manner. Proof that human nature hasn't changed all that drastically, be it through the classic fables or in our own modern society. For fans of ancient history and folklore.
