I bought this book to find help with my research making a documentary film on Odyssey. I soon realised it's more than a book for research: it's undoubtedly a product of labour of love and ingenuity, giving clues to resolve riddles, but also with respect and adoration to the original text, leaving things open to the magical realm of imagination. Profoundly romantic to the tale's origins, placing the wanderings of Odysseus mostly in Greek territories, plus taking into account local folk tales and seafare know-how to prove it, this is an excellently written book that gives joy to all Homer's enthusiasts.

Haven't finished reading it, but it is intriguing, even for someone who doesn't sail, and who can't appreciate all the hardships.

Ordered 30 June, arrived by courier 4 July. It was described as in a 'used', 'good' condition. I would rate it far higher than that. It really requires a knowledge of the 'Odyssey' for full appreciation. Would recommend.
