Okay, confession time. I have a bachelor's degree in English Literature and I have never read The Odyssey in entirety. (In different classes I have been assigned the book and read different part equaling the whole book, but it has always been so overwhelming as a single book that I have never sat down and read it in its entirety.) I've always had problems with books (and movies) in older versions of the English language. I struggle with Shakespeare. I struggle with Chaucer. And I struggled with The Odyssey. However, Gareth Hinds makes The Odyssey accessible to the point that I didn't want to put down the book AND I understood it all. And to add to it all, the illustrations in this graphic novel are engaging and gorgeous.

Paige Kinnaird Thank you for that. As an English Major, I also never read THE ODYSSEY in its entirety. Looking forward to reading this version.
