I feel even worse about this than The Odyssey but really I found this so unspeakably boring! I couldn't finish the thing but I did later read most of the end for study purposes. The language really did not work for me and somehow I didn't relate to any of the characters, no matter how awful their predicaments. Also, the amout of repetition, listings and interruptions in the narrative in order to go off at inappropriate and boring tangents made the whole experience worse for me. In the end I just didn't care for it but it is Homer and there is worse due to the historical interest and so I am giving it two stars.
