I knew this book would be good based on all the recommendations I've read, but I didn't know just *how* good. I started it as a read-aloud to my kids during our Ancient Greece history lessons. I have never read "The Iliad", just knew bits and pieces of the storyline. I have been reading a few chapters each day, but ended up finishing up the book on my own because I was so drawn in by it. Now the hard part will be not giving away more details to the kids while I finish reading it. I really loved it! Some of the parts have been a little too gruesome for the girls, but they are *girls*, after all. ;-)

We also have "The Adventures of Odysseus" by Sutcliff and now I'm expecting great things from that book, too!
