I haven't actually finished reading the book, and honestly, I don't intend to.
The story is truly interesting, because it's about Odysseus and all, but I think that this book is not yet for my age. The first 13 pages lulled me to sleep. Maybe later on in life, when I'm old and balding and have nothing to do, I'll pick this little book and decide to finish it :)

However, I recommend this book to those with Mythology lessons in their English class. Their is a glossary at the back most part of the book, and it could really come in handy.

Natalie LOL, I understand your pain...It can be work getting through Homer's drawn out tale. I would have never read this book for leisure. I read it in high school and again in college, so having someone interpret and discuss it helped me like it. I didn't appreciate it or like it until I was in college, though. Good Luck!

Tristram hahaha. . . thanks Neon!
I'll be in college next year, and who knows?
