A charming and readable version of this classic tale,
This review is from: Homer's Odyssey (Paperback)
I had never read Homer's Odyssey before, although many of the stories within it will be familiar to most people.
There is a lovely brevity and succinctness about the style as one would expect from a leading poet. I read it in the space of a couple of days, including one long journey, and it had me captivated.
I would thoroughly recommend it to anyone wanting an approachable but not dumbed down version of these stories. I am now motivated to read a full translation of the original - which I would never have been before.
