    Brought to you by Penguin. 

    Following the best-selling retellings of the Greek myths in Mythos and Heroes, Stephen Fry's bewitching third volume, Troy - concerning love and war, passion and power - is now ready for ordering.    

    The story of Troy speaks to all of us - the kidnapping of Helen, a queen celebrated for her beauty, sees the Greeks launch a thousand ships against the city of Troy, to which they will lay siege for 10 whole and very bloody years.  

    It is Zeus, the king of the gods, who triggers the war when he asks the Trojan prince Paris to judge the fairest goddess of them all. Aphrodite bribes Paris with the heart of Helen, wife of King Menelaus of the Greeks, and naturally, nature takes its course. 

    It is a terrible, brutal war with casualties on all sides as well as strained relations between allies. The Greek's most fearsome warrior, Achilles, argues with King Agamemnon, his commander, over another woman, the Trojan slave Briseis. The consequences lead to terrible tragedies.

    In Troy you will find heroism and hatred, love and loss, revenge and regret, desire and despair. It is these human passions, written bloodily in the sands of a distant shore, that still speak to us today.   

    It is a myth in which we seek the truth about ourselves and which Stephen Fry brings breathtakingly to life.

    Amazing! Just it isn’t broken down by chapters well.

    The book is amazing and if you liked the two previous voyages into greek mythology you will love this. Very calming and enchanting. The reason for a star less is because it isn’t broken by chapters well. It has two giant chapters of 4 hours in the middle and even the other ones comprise a few so it’s a bit hard to orient yourself if you want to listen to something again. But that’s audibles fault and not Stephan Fry’s. No fault with him or his work. Brilliant as always.

    All three books - Mythos, Heroes and Troy - are brilliant. They are a pleasure to read and to listen to.

    amazing story telling

    I loved the story and the way that Stephen Fry makes it so easy to follow. it definitely makes me want to know more about the myth, specially about what would be the next part of the story, the Odyssey.

    Greek Narration at its best!

    Modern day Homer, Stephen Fry, tells the third and most dramatic part of his trilogy of ancient Greek mythology in his usual dramatic and entertaining way.
    A treat to read and listen to!
    Bravo maestro!

    Was für ein großer Spaß!

    Die zwei ersten Hörbücher Frys zur griechischen Mythologie sind großartig, aber dieses schießt wirklich den Vogel ab! Eine unbedingte Hörempfehlung für jeden, der Heldensagen mag, Stephen Fry liebt und die griechische Mythologie faszinierend findet. Ich hoffe, die Odyssee folgt bald!

    episch

    Auch wenn man von der Komplexität und Vielzahl der Namen fast erschlagen wird, ist die Faszination dieser Götter- und archaischen Menschenwelt beeindruckend. Und Vieles lässt sich in der heutigen Welt wiederfinden.
