What better way to honor a story from the oral tradition of the past than a remarkable presentation by a storyteller of the present! The stories are vibrantly retold:The lion of Nemea, the slaying of Hydra, the poison arrows, the stables of King Augeas, Hippolyta’s girdle. In his reworking of Hercules, Odds Bodkin shares all of the labors and adds his own modern flair. He's masterful as the storyteller. One listens eagerly and is taken through a range of emotions as Hercules rages, Eurystheus whines, Persephone coddles, and Hades questions. The storytelling pace ebbs and flows with the intensity of the adventures and is handsomely augmented with musical interludes and background. Close your eyes and travel through Greece of old with Hercules and Odds Bodkin. A.R. © AudioFile 2001, Portland, Maine [Published: APR/MAY 01]
