What I learned from this book:
1. Stephen Fry is not only a good actor; he’s also an excellent writer and narrator.
2. Being beautiful during the time of the Greek legends was almost always a curse.
3. Zeus was a jerk.
4. Prometheus was a bro.
5. Midas just didn’t learn.
6. I wish the book had been longer

If "Gods and Heroes of Ancient Greece" by Schwab is the King James Version of English Greek myth retellings, "Mythos" is The Message. Fry is delightful as always with his droll storytelling. Highly recommended as a take on the Greek myths in modern vernacular.
