Τα λόγια είναι περιττά για ένα βιβλίο σαν αυτό!
Επικό με όλη τη σημασία της λέξεως!
Σε μεταφέρει στην αρχαία Ελλάδα και σε διδάσκει πολλά πράγματα.
Μια ιστορία που πρέπει να διαβάσει ο καθένας μας οπωσδήποτε, για να μάθει να αγαπά, να πολεμά για την οικογένεια και για το δίκιο του, και να ξεπερνά κάθε εμπόδιο μαθαίνοντας και φτιάχνοντας χαρακτήρα.
Μάθημα ζωής το βιβλίο αυτό...

Along with the rest of Homer this is essential reading for knowing much more than simply the journey of a heroe after The Trojan War, this represents the origins of the classics and from that what our literature and stories are all about.

It's good, but it's sooooooooooo long. It's also a really old dorm of writing, and can be difficult to follow.

Loved the detail, the prose, and the chance to delve into a bit of ancient Greek fiction. One of the inspirations to our modern fantasy.

If I were to retell this story, I'd focus on Eumaeus, and call it "The Noble Swineherd."
