“Mythos: The Greek Myths Retold supplies a wonderful reintroduction to some of the more popular stories...Fry wears his learning lightly, delivering a series of witty vignettes and stopping along the way to note the Greek origins of familiar words. ('Giant' derives from Gigantes, a group of primal deities known for their strength – though, interestingly, not their size.) Never again will you confuse Fates with Furies, or wonder why we have cornucopias."
