  • The Illiad

    By otter+60
    My memory of the first translation is a little dim from many years back so I didn't expect to enjoy this version quite as much as I have. It ranks as one of my favorites due to the classic narrative of what must be a master of tale telling. I can only imagine what it must have been like to sit for the epic, magnificent oral readings that this originated from.

  • Roman mythology?

    By Gregvaw
    Why are the Roman and Greeks gods both used in this book?
  • Amazing Epic

    By Coltman98
    The translation of the book is amazing, this is one of Homer's greatest novels. The book takes place during the ten-year long siege of Troy by Greek coalition cities, it also tells the battles and events during the final weeks of the siege. The book although staged during the final weeks mentions the other events during the siege. I enjoyed the novel because it gives a great perspective of the Trojan War that makes the war seem real. I recommend this to anyone who enjoys Homer's works and Greek mythology.
  • The iliad

    By Tyler Blakley
    Legendary classic that's been around longer than the bible and still has a more enticing storyline.
