Read 2 times. Last read October 17, 2018 to November 15, 2018.

Read this again in 2018 with the Omnibus Tenebras group. I'm doubling my previous star rating, and adding that this time I grew in admiration for Odysseus and Penelope, for the story of glory in marriage and family rather than glory in circuitous battle as in The Iliad. Good work, Homer.


2012: 2 of 5 stars. I'm glad that I read it. Finally. However, I can't say that (I've grown so much that I'm at the point where) epic Greek poetry suits me. That said, it wasn't as bad as having Polyphemus bash my brains out on the floor, so I have much to be thankful for.
