Women and Other Monsters

Building a New Mythology

By Jess Zimmerman
Narrated by: Vanessa Moyen
Length: 6 hours 53 minutes

Women and Other Monsters

Women and Other Monsters is a fresh and invigorating reflection of ancient mythology, gender, and the modern world. Zimmerman re-examines eleven monstrous women of Greek mythology (the Siren, the Hydra, the Fates, Medusa, etc) and applies her findings to not only her own life experiences, but to the world at large. The result is part memoir, part literary analysis, and part manifesto. Fresh and feminist AF, Women and Other Monsters will gut punch you with its realness, its relatability, and its monstrousness.”

A Thousand Ships

A Novel

By Natalie Haynes
Narrated by: Natalie Haynes
Length: 8 hours 33 minutes

A Thousand Ships

“From The Aeneid to The Iliad and The Odyssey, classic stories of the Trojan War are implicitly reliant on the role of women, however reticent they are portrayed. Finally — finally! — we have a retelling that does women, girls, and goddesses justice. Through the perspective of women in various places and times during the war, Natalie Haynes constructs an epic collage that follows the warriors, refugees, oracles, muses, wives, and daughters of Troy, Greece, and beyond in one of the most famous conflicts in world history.”

Mythos

By author
Narrated by: Stephen Fry
Length: 15 hours 24 minutes

Mythos

“Stephen Fry has dusted off the Greek myths. Starting with the creation and going through all the infights, back-stabbings, and just plain stupid mistakes of the Greek pantheon, he breaths new life into these tales with his characteristic wry humor and witty asides. A great added feature of the video book is that Fry himself reads it, so sit back, turn on your LibroFM-playing device, close your eyes and be prepared to be entertained while learning or relearning the ins and outs of Greek mythology.”

Circe

By Madeline Miller
Narrated by: Perdita Weeks
Length: 12 hours 8 minutes

Circe

“A bold retelling of the Circe episode from Homer's Odyssey that not only captures the interlocking pieces of Greek mythology, but also gives each god, titan, and Grecian a pulsing complexity. Both Circe the book and the character are quiet, sensual and--at times--freewheeling, adventurous, and devastating. Perdita Week's performance here is multi-layered and captivating. The voices she chooses to portray each character captures the unfolding drama and humor beautify.”

Ariadne

A Novel

By Jennifer Saint
Narrated by: Barrie Kreinik
Length: 11 hours 59 minutes

Ariadne

“Satisfying the need for more Greek/Roman transformational myths from much-needed other viewpoints, Jennifer Saint delivers tales of Ariadne and her sister Phaedra’s life on Crete and beyond. Less heroic yarn and more character inquisitiveness — a refreshing addition.”
