THE HELMET OF HORROR The Myth of Theseus and the Minotaur

by | Read by Various Readers

Fiction • 3 hrs. • Audio Program • © 2006

Pelevin's retelling of the story of Theseus and the Minotaur will certainly challenge listeners. The entire story exists within an online chatroom populated by enigmatic users who attempt to resolve their situation of being locked in separate rooms that open to strange landscapes in which a creature is lurking. Brilliance uses a full cast of talented narrators, including Susie Breck and Dick Hill, to differentiate characters since the entire book consists of chatroom text entries. Typical chatroom sounds, such as door slams when a character leaves the discussion, add an element of authenticity, but some discrepancies remain between an aurally based medium like audiobooks and the visually based, soundless premise of the book.
