Many stories have stood the test of time, but this selection have entranced audiences for thousands of years and remain as fresh today as they were when first told. A fascinating collection which gives vivid insights into lives in ancient times and the issues that occupied the people of the day.

Includes tales of ancient Egypt, written to discourage militant women from reviving the old matriarchal system; enchanting stories of the Buddha that were later adapted by Aesop; old humorous stories of the Brahmans; stories from the Greeks in Asia Minor, including the wonderful sketch "The Ladies of Syracuse", which gives a fresh, charming, and lively picture of life in Alexandria; plus the epic Cupid and Psyche by the excellent Latin writer Apuleius.

    Henrik Karlsson

    "Har precis startat en provperiod hos Storytel och det är det bästa jag någonsin gjort. Att lyssna ger mig full koncentration på boken samtidigt som jag kan pyssla med annat."

    Birgitta Johansson

    "Det bästa som har hänt mig på länge. Dessutom lyssnar jag på böcker som jag nog aldrig hade kommit mig för att läsa annars. Jag lyssnar i bilen, på promenaden eller när jag städar."

    Birgitta Lindh

    "Jag och min man delar familjeabonnemanget och har haft Storytel i 5-6 år. Vi är så nöjda med både appen och Readern. Här finns ett stort bokutbud som passar oss båda!"
