Four stars because I'd recommend it if, like me, you finished the Odyssey and immediately started fantasizing about retracing his voyage yourself. Otherwise, you can safely skip it.

A more philosophical writer might have connected his voyage with Odysseus's in a more personal or insightful way. And a more flowery writer might have evoked the scenes of Odysseus's trip, both then and now, more vividly. Roth is a sailing geek first, literature geek second, so an awful lot of this book is given over
interesting subject, so-so writing, affability of author notwithstanding
