Hm. On the one hand, it's not really fair to judge ancient stories by modern standards. But on the other hand, it actually is kinda fair, dammit. Odysseus, our hero, is essentially a giant gary-stu that everyone is in love with, and if you don't like him you can just fuck right off (quickly, or you will probably end up dead, just fyi). He can do no wrong, his son can do no wrong, his poor wife that is stuck in her house for 20 years thanks to shitty ancient greek patriarchal society (and because ...more

The Odyssey by Homer is an exciting story that tells about Odysseus and his endless journey trying to reach home.

I couldn't find the exact version of The Odyssey that I read (I read the version translated by Richard Lattimore). This is one of my favorite books of Ancient history... very interesting. This book had me wondereing what would happen to Odysseus next and I couldn't wait to read that part where he was reunited with his wife and son. My expectations were more than fulfilled... it had a very exciting and dramatic ending. I definitely want to re-read this one.
I thought that the book has to be one of my favorites. Odysseus is one of those few Greek heroes who managed to still be alive after almost being destroyed by Poseidon. The back had a lot of action from the beginning to the end. I like how Odysseus kills the suitors at the end of story.
This is a great retold version! Beautifully written!!! :-)
