Présentation de l'éditeur

Get this:

Cronus liked to eat babies.

Narcissus probably should have just learned to masturbate.

Odin got construction discounts with bestiality.

Isis had bad taste in jewelry.

Ganesh was the very definition of an unplanned pregnancy.

And Abraham was totally cool about stabbing his kid in the face.

All our lives, we’ve been fed watered-down, PC versions of the classic myths. In reality, mythology is more screwed up than a schizophrenic shaman doing hits of unidentified…wait, it all makes sense now. In Zeus Grants Stupid Wishes, Cory O’Brien, creator of Myths RETOLD!, sets the stories straight. These are rude, crude, totally sacred texts told the way they were meant to be told: loudly, and with lots of four-letter words.

Skeptical? Here are a few more gems to consider:

• Zeus once stuffed an unborn fetus inside his thigh to save its life after he exploded its mother by being too good in bed.

• The entire Egyptian universe was saved because Sekhmet just got too hammered to keep murdering everyone.

• The Hindu universe is run by a married couple who only stop murdering in order to throw sweet dance parties…on the corpses of their enemies.

• The Norse goddess Freyja once consented to a four-dwarf gangbang in exchange for one shiny necklace.

And there’s more dysfunctional goodness where that came from.

Don't read this book in the bathtub, your roommate will think you are choking on something and she'll burst in and see that you are tearing up and think you have been dumped. It's gonna be really awkward.
Definitely read it somewhere else in the house, though. Or on the subway if you don't mint people watching you giggle.

Cory O'Brien is getting it right: his updates to world mythological tales are very funny, totally comprehensible (unlike some of the original versions), sexy enough to make them occasionally NSFW, written in a vernacular that will offend some but totally delight most, and more than anything, makes it clear that mankind does try to figure out how to explain s*&t that happens, and that the explanations take much the same arc regardless of culture. This book should be required reading in every single mythology and classics class in the country. Bravo!

I have read a lot of mythology in my time, and eventually stopped because everyone took it so overly seriously. This is not that. It is a brilliant, funny, pop-culture filled tome of some of the most insane and genuinely funny writing I have ever had the pleasure of reading. Some personal favorite section titles: "King Midas Is: GOLDFINGER", "Ra and Sekhmet, or: How Beer Saved the Universe", and "Local Father Discovers Immortality with This One Weird Tip!".

Cory O'Brien has struck gold with this wonderful book, and I certainly hope more people buy it and read it, and read every part of it.

Because you will actually cackle and snort with laughter and people will think you need medication. Cory O'Brien not only hones these myths down to their purest form, he manages to capture the bawdy wonder of storytelling around ancient fires. His additional myths on America and the big bang show that despite our bells whistles and laptops--we still need myths and myths of myths. It's hard to write a book that can make your Uncle Joe laugh just as hard as your sullen teen nephew--this is the one. GET IT. GIFT IT. You're welcome.

I had never been much of an ancient myth enthusiast; I never sought them out or researched them simply for the pleasure of it. I found the old myths frankly boring and somewhat hard to understand. But how wrong was I?! Huge awesome parties, crazy orgies, and so much high school drama that ends in murder is ridiculous!

O'Brien retells these myths like no one we've seen before, in a way that is not only hilarious, but also legitimately interesting. Chalked full of cursing and vaguely inappropriate, this is just what we need to make myths interesting for all people again. I never really understood myths before reading them retold by O'Brien, but I finally get and I can't stop laughing.

Seriously, buy this book. You won't regret it.
