Whether it's the adventures of Greek gods and goddesses or Norse trickster tales, we all love to hear a good story. Kenneth C. Davis gives readers a taste of the diverse myths that live on in the cultures and religions around the world today. In his trademark question-and-answer style, peppered with entertaining sidebars and quotes, he also shows how almost every civilization's mythology shares common themes. A wealth of photographs and art reproductions, along with clever black-and-white illustrations by Sergio Ruzzier, helps convey mythology's lasting vitality. This is the perfect young companion to Don't Know Much About® Mythology -- and other titles in Davis's best-selling Don't Know Much About® series.

Jason Harris narrates this popular audio program with able assists from an introduction by the author and the wonderful, if underused, voice of John Bedford Lloyd. Listeners won't get more than a smattering of information here, for while the question-and-answer style offers great questions, the answers include only sketches of some of the world's most enduring myths. Missing from the audiobook is the helpful sequential timetable, "Mythic Milestones," that accompanies the print version. While this is valuable as a quick reference to the highlights of world mythology, nothing is as good as listening to the real thing. One hopes this compilation is meant as a starting point for those new to myths. S.J.H. © AudioFile 2006, Portland, Maine-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine
