It s about time we ve met the Greek heroes and their foes Perseus Theseus Heracles Jason and many This installment was as entertaining as the first one Mythos But it felt like Fry crammed in too much information in one book For example Heracles labours were described so shortly and I would ve liked a detailed account Also there was a LOT of name dropping which Fry even acknowledged saying that the important names will stick It s another great book for mythology lovers or those who are looking to get into it This will be a good start after reading Fry s Mythos of course
