Phillips's wildly funny romantic caper stars Greek gods who are living in a run-down townhouse in London, barely making a living and losing their powers. Apollo falls in love with Alice, a cleaning woman, who is in love with Neil, an engineer. Apollo and Neil face off, Alice is killed by lightening, and Apollo falls into a coma, turning the sun off and threatening mankind's existence. Neil makes a perilous journey to the underworld to rescue Alice and bring Apollo back to life. Tom Sellwood undertakes an enormous cast of characters--from sexy, deep-throated goddesses to the whiny Apollo and an assortment of Londoners. The abridgment is flawless, keeping a high-energy pace and offering a barrel of laughs. M.T.B. © AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine [Published: MAY 2008]
