    I'm glad I read it, but don't be fooled that you can read this translation without some type of Spark/CliffNotes.

    This is a sequal to the Iliad and follows Odysseus as he travels from Troy. After being gone he is assumed dead and his family will have to fight their own battles. Odysseus on his travels home will test the Greek Gods and himself on his journey to his home, Ithica. This book is good for following the Iliad, but dissapoints with how slowly the book starts. Over all, I recommend this to anyone who is a fan of Homer.

    I had to read this over the summer for school and it was absolute torture! I couldn't wait to get to the end! Absolutely hated it. I don't even know how people say they "enjoy" it.
