Sintesi dell'editore

Nathaniel Hawthorne masterfully grabs the imagination of children with these timeless tales of adventure based on the incomparable Greek mythological heroes' escapades.  

Children will enter a world of magic and intrigue as they face ferocious beasts, clever enchantresses, and tricky gods, alongside the greatest heroes of all time. 

Will Theseus escape from the maze that is guarded by the awful Minotaur? Can Jason steal the Golden Fleece from under the nose and claws of a vicious dragon? Can Odysseus outsmart the witch whose potion has turned his men into pigs? And will Cadmus rescue his sister from the bull who has kidnapped her - and who turns out to be none other than mighty Zeus himself in disguise? Find out in this enchanting retelling of the classic tales, spun by an American master.

Incomplete!

I needed to read this for a literature/writing class I'm teaching for 8th and 9th graders. I bought this audio book for my daughter with ADHD and slow processing speed disorder to listen to because it helps her process as she reads. I ended up listening too because I'm not particularly fond of Hawthorns writing style and just reading it had become tedious. As to the readers' performances: I thought the main narrator had a babyish tone to her voice like she was reading to preschoolers; the others who came into read for the other characters didn't seem to jive with the character thy were portraying, even pronouncing names differently than the main reader. That was very distracting. But the most egregious error was that the reading of the book was incomplete. There are still 10 pages left in the story of Jason and the Golden Fleece!

The last story is incomplete!

What a letdown not to know how the last story works out. It's like falling off a cliff with no bottom.

Dreadful narrator & version

I would like to return this to Audible please. I quickly want to re-read the original to excise these awful voices from my mind.

Great stories - Awful reader

Would you try another book from Nathaniel Hawthorne and/or the narrators?

These wonderful stories are marred by the dreadful main read. She is simple terrible. The worst is add things like a Appalachian Farmer accent for Athenian rustics (Simply terrible!!)

Look for Anthony Quayle's version. Avoid this one.

Recommended Reading

I think it is very important for students to know mythology to understand western literature. This has great narration and great cast to make the stories understandable.

I can't believe this is a book....

If you're looking to feed your kids bad morals, racism, sexism, and the like, this is the audio book for you! I honestly can't believe these stories are still around. Mentioning being turned black if you're bad, no rights for women, and so many other unbelievable aspects in a children's story. At least the voice actors were pretty good.

Delightful retelling by Hawthorne

The retelling of some traditional Greek myths in Victorian style is delightful. The performance is not my first preference (I prefer a single artist) but fair enough.

Incredible Prose.

I Lovez Nathaniel Hawthorne. This is wonderful Classic American Literature. I am also to this day still a huge fan of Nathaniel Dwayne Hale, better known as Nate DOGG. I for one feel that Nate was probably influenced by Hawthorne when he wrote the feel of Classic American Literature in his Rhymes.

Slow

Took awhile to get going and I kept looking my interest. Not a fan. Hardly can finish.
