Glad I read this book. It was interesting to see what people believed about the ancient Gods. It was also interesting to see when the Gods did and didn't interfere with their lives when they could easily solve all of their problems.

This book was all about Odysseus's journey back to his home after 20 years. I thought it was interesting to see the hospitality he was shown in some places. I also thought it was a little much how his wife was constantly crying and weeping over him.

I also didn't love the ending (won't give it away). It seemed like a little bit of a cop out. But, I am very glad I read it and can see why it is a classic. It is one of the only books that tells some of the stories about the ancient Gods.
