This is a vernacular version of Greek myths, similar to Lamb's Tales from Shakespeare, which is meant for "boys and girls." However, the modern retelling of the proverbial stories is over-simplified for adults and un-exciting for all except children who really enjoy mythology. David Case's clipped British accent goes well with the tales although his reading is replete with British pronunciations of words not readily recognizable. He uses few vocal characterizations. Numerous technical demerits detract as well. E.F. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: MAR 94]
