The War Nerd Iliad
A raw, gruesome and occasionally very funny retelling of the Iliad—written in flawless prose. Couldn't put this down once I'd started. The gods turn out to be fascinating and weird, and the humans are nothing like us moderns. I also liked how Dolan sometimes inserts himself into the narrative to provide some backstory or explain some historical detail. If you're a 'war nerd', enjoy weird books or simply never got around to studying the Iliad because it seems too daunting, this is for you.
