A Classic Adventure,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Odyssey (Oxford World's Classics) (Paperback)
I read this after reading the Oxford World's Classic version of the Illiad. While the Illiad has the more charismatic characters and the energy and excitement of epic battles, quarrelling gods and heroes like Achilles, Ajax and Hector, the Odyssey is I think the better read. The prose style of this version is especially effective and this is a ancient boys own adventure. Its probably not something you'll read in a day or so, but its worth the effort.
