Odysseus: The Oath: Book One by Valerio Massimo Manfredi
Odysseus: The Oath: Book One by Valerio Massimo Manfredi
Manfredi tells the Iliad tale in a 21st-century way. In fact, it's more than the Iliad: he describes Odisseus's childhood, seasons it with The Argonauts and takes you to the fall of Troy. He is an archeologist, so don't expect great character building or descriptions but you know he is using more historical evidence than just Homer and it's a great story.

5.0 out of 5 stars a very nice gadget, 3 Nov 2013
I keep finding new features in the kindle. The simple way to search for dictionary definitions is great if you want to improve your word power. I've just found out that if you are reading a novel with several characters or places you can search for that character and see when it turned up before.
If you find you keep racing the minute counter, you can switch it off.

this was cheaper than the recommended charger but it does the job well. I plug my kindle on the slow 1A port. (I believe rightly or wrongly) that slow charge will make your batteries last longer. The cheap USB chargers (0.5A) that you buy in the pound shop will also do the job but you may have to switch the kindle off during charge.
