A wonderful read,
This review is from: The Ulysses Voyage: Sea Search for the "Odyssey" (Hardcover)
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.
