    God how I loved this tasty little morsel 😍 I admit the main reason I bought this book is because of Jason Frazier the narrator After I got my first taste of him from “Blame it on the Mistletoe” I knew I gotta get of his yummy sexy narration 😁 So I went audio hunting on Audible and bought several of his titles And this little treat caught my attention right away First of all I studied English literature and classics are and will always be my first and great love So it’s no wonder I also have a special fondness for mythologies I love myths that vivid and powerful imagination of gods and their glory the powerful heroes and their epic battle scenes the beautiful world of nymphs mermaids goddesses and unicorns all that kind of deliciousness And we have of course at least heard if not read about Ganymede the most beautiful mortal who has ever walked on this earth 😊 So beautiful and perfect that he was taken away to Mt Olympus to become the cupbearer of Zeus the king of all gods 😉 However this is a very different perspective on retelling of Ganymede because this is his POV 😱 And let me tell you our hero Ganymede is a one very cheeky and snarky Grecian brat 😂 The way he conveyed the story it was masterfully and beautifully crafted of course with the healthy amount of uick wits and a bit of dry humor 😉 This is not just Ganymede retelling what truly happened some 4000 years ago This is him teaching us valuable life lessons passing us a wisdom that he’s learnt first hand so that we won’t settle for the first thing that came along our way 😌 It was fun it was witty and hilarious and it was glorious 😱👏 And Jason Frazier’s superb narration made it even enjoyable and realistic to immerse oneself into this mythical magical world 😍 I was in a different plane when gods walk among mortals and engage interactions with us puny and weak humans I was in a place where there were mighty and magnificent temples built for gods that we worshipped and when we still believe in the fortune telling by chicken blood that we had just sacrificed I was mesmerized I was in love I was Ganymede himself and I was in love with my plain wise and loving sheep farmer Zeus 🥰 And smutwise although it isn’t explicit it was very titillating and erotic 🔥 Well after all for the lovers of books about men loving men Ganymede truly was our pioneer in the art of lovemaking between men Right? 😁 I can’t recommend this little tasty morsel enough And you know the best part??? This audio was under 5 bucks 😱 Can you believe it? Because I can’t and I’d gladly pay 50 bucks for this glorious and beautifully narrated story 👏 Loved loved and loved it 💙5 And just like our love I became immortal stars⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️Audio ratingStory 5 stars ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️Narration 5 stars ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️Performance 5 stars ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️Overall 5 stars ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

    When you listen to audiobooks on a regular basis as a listener you start to find performers you love Before you know it when you’re looking at the lists of audiobooks you’re searching the listings not by title or author but by who performs the audiobook and then reading the blurbs of the books they’ve done Finding a new and awesome performer is like finding a new author and in fact absolutely leads to just that finding new authors through the performerI reviewed this in full over at Out in Print ueer Book Reviews

    If you are looking for a traditional Greek tale with formal classic language then this is certainly not for you Picano visualises a young man given immortality at fourteen who has aged mentally with the earth; he sees and knows the world – the modern world – and he speaks like a modern albiet an American boy He decides to speak up and tell his true story because he sees that “a certain group of overconcerned busybodies are intent on making me a symbolic victim of an old pervert’s lust; and contrarily by others saying that the perversion is fine” He wants to set the record straight to point out that his human rights had NOT been violated and he’s not the unwilling victim raped and abducted without his permissionHe also says in the prologue that he wants to give guys of today some hints “to get themselves a sugar daddy who really counts rather than settling for whomever comes along”Yes – unhinge your classical brain we ain’t in the land of Laurence Olivier as ZeusNow you’d think I’d be complaining bitterly but I’m really not I thoroughly enjoyed it once I saw the tack that Picano was taking Ganymede is a cheeky little bastard but wouldn’t you be if you were fated to be the most beautiful youth that ever lived? Picano takes the story mentioned in The Iliad that Ganymede was the son of Troas King of Troy and whilst some of the ends of the story are changed a little Ganymede Explains It All with typical youthful brio When Zeus propositions him there’s one of my favourite lines in the book and typical of the boy “If you want me you’re going to have to do a lot better than they did I’m not going to be known as the idiot who threw over Apollo and Hermes and Ares for an instant baking” The fact that his dad is dying of embarrassment as his son talks back to Zeus is a perfect touchGanymede learns very early on that being so beautiful is both a blessing and a curse His father shows him off as one of the wonders of Troy and soon on the boy is exiled from his home because Troas doesn’t want any gods turning up to court his son and making a nuisance of themselves Ganymede’s adventures begin after this rejecting Hermes Ares and Apollo after giving them a little taste of what they were going to miss because he knows he’s worth than any old randy minor god And who can blame him However it’s not until he’s humbled that he gets the chance to fulfill his destiny The fact that it was Ganymede that brought about the Trojan war and subseuent destruction I thought was nicely done It was his face that launched those ships after allThe book is illustrated with lovely black and white drawings by David Martin which are very lickable and I wish I could show you oneThis book could easily have descended into a laughable sporkable farce but it doesn’t It manages to be a fun funny read thanks to the characterisation of the narrator and if you can get hold of a copy reasonably priced I think you’ll enjoy it

    The obvious reference point is Merlis’s “An Arrow’s Flight” but Picano sticks to the time period instead of inserting modernity into the mix And Picano’s conversational Ganymede is funny and breezy and altogether charming His observations on life and mythos are as interesting as they are clever

  5. Jayne Jayne says:

    This book was originally written in 1981 by Felice Picano and details the early life and career of Ganymede as told by the alluring boy in his own words It is extremely well written a colourful ribald account of his escapades as he fights off the attentions of men of all rank and age His beauty also captures the attention of various Immortals who will go to great lengths to seduce him It probably should be noted to those unfamiliar with Ancient history that Ganymede is 12 at the beginning of the book so 21st century sensibilities do not applyThe book hasn’t been in print for a long while but now it has been republished as an audiobook narrated in a salacious drawl by Jason Frazier This is the first audiobook I have listened to all the way through The delivery is everything especially with a book that could be dismissed as being either too highbrow by some or too lightweight by others This would be a shame In fact it is a witty sexy sometimes humorous account of Ganymede’s life The reader gets a peephole view into the lusty world of Troy and its inhabitants where beauty is highly prized and judged at every turn Ganymede is the most beautiful of all boys gaining sexual experience with a variety of Immortal lovers before being disgraced and shunned for rejecting the top man Zeus; probably not his greatest career moveJason Frazier’s voice should have an R rating He could read a telephone directory and make it ooze with sexual promise The book itself is not explicit but the theme of lust runs through it in a pulsing thread Ganymede learns humility but still retains an arrogance that only truly beautiful people can get away with He isn’t particularly likeable but that doesn’t matter His story is told in such rich and gorgeous detail one cannot help but be captivated This is a book to be savoured at home rather than driving or in a public place as it would be a crime to miss a single wordI was given a copy of this Audiobook in return for an honest review

  7. Stephanie Stephanie says:

    This is such an amazing short listen I love read mythologies so I thought this is such a great short story about Ganymede I just love how Jason Frazier has done this narration Even though it is short it was definitely entertaining

    Marvellous😂 I just love the dry ironical satirical voice that Felice Picano has given to Ganymede

    Audio reviewOverall 5Performance 10Story 4OK I have to admit that I didn't really understand this story but I LOVED the audio performance by Jason Frazier After I listened to it I looked up Ganymede and realized why I didn't know much about the story I've never really been into mythology but now after Googling Ganymede I think I will go back and listen to this short audiobook againI've found a new audiobook performer to add to my list of favoritesA complementary copy of this audiobook was provided to me but my review is freely given and not influenced by the gift
