Who cut off Medusa's head? Who was raised by a she-bear? Who tamed Pegasus? And whatever happened to that Golden Fleece? It takes a demigod to know the answers, and Percy Jackson can fill you in on all the daring deeds of Perseus, Atalanta, Bellerophon, and the rest of the major Greek heroes. Told in the funny, irreverent style listeners have come to expect from Percy (I've had some bad experiences in my time, but the heroes I'm going to tell you about were the original old-school hard-luck cases. They boldly screwed up where no one had screwed up before...?), this story collection will become the new must-have classic for Rick Riordan's legions of devoted fans-and for anyone who needs a hero.

"Sixteen-plus hours is a lot of listening time! Yet, taking it in chunks, listeners will delight in this collection, not only appreciating the breadth of the mythology but also the joy that Jesse Bernstein takes in his narration. As Perseus "Percy" Jackson, Bernstein narrates with an insider's point of view, as he is a son of Poseidon, and the hero and storyteller of Riordan's Percy Jackson books. Bernstein uses varied pacing, stretched-out words and pauses, and punched-out words and phrases, all in service of portraying the wise, know-it-all teenager that his character is. While the core of the myth is accurate (Atalanta does toss out three apples during her race), its telling is rife with witty comments as well as modern language and phraseology. A.R.
