it was amazing
Recommended for: people who like the classics
Read in January, 1997

The best story ever-it has everything-love, romance, war, brave, handsome men, exotic places, monsters, beautiful women-its all in these two stories. Odysseus is my all-time favorite hero, and although he is a brave hero, he has his faults and it's this combination that makes him so lovable and what makes this story one of the greatest of all time. The text can be difficult to read, and following the who's who of the gods and goddesses can be quite a feat. I've read it several times, I never get tired of it.

Daniel Heinrich Schliemann, who at that time thought he had discovered Troy, taught himself Greek by memorising it in the original ancient Greek language.
