Being used to Homer I found this not up to what I was expecting it to be. I would only recommend it to those that are not Homer lovers !!!

2.0 out of 5 stars Go with another free translation 16 Feb. 2014
By Gonzo Hawkeye - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
There are several free translations of The Aeneid available on Amazon, but this one is the most difficult to read. I'd recommend trying one of the other versions listed below instead as they translate The Aeneid into poetic verse. This version is structured like a novel with block paragraphs, which makes it a bit challenging to absorb.

The Aeneid English - http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0083ZC6Y2

4.0 out of 5 stars It's Virgil What Else do you Need to Say? 6 Mar. 2014
By Steve Hoenig - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Maybe you read it in college. Maybe not. It's a classic. No one who believes themselves truly educated can ignore this book. It is a part of our history and it is a part of who we are. I don't know what else to say about it except it right up there with the Iliad, the Odyssey, and Beowulf. You just need to read it.
These days so many of us don't really seem to understand where we came from. Your great, great grandparents may have arrived on the MayFlower, but trust me that is not where you came from.
Human history is rich and sad and amazing and depressing and so so promising. Learn as much of it as you can. It helps in a strange kind of way to know about our ancestors. That one reason I love Simon Schama's, A History of Britain. I'm not British by blood but I feel like a first cousin.
History connects us. It gives us a commonality and a genuine connection. And it's far cheaper than group therapy. Usually more fun too.

3.0 out of 5 stars I Read It, but It Is Beyond My Knowledge... 2 Mar. 2014
By Christina Packard - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I am trying to read as many classics as I can. This book I found on Amazon for Free to be used with my Kindle. I believe there were twelve chapers of which I can honestly say that I understood chapter two which was the battle at Troy. I knew the names and places in that chapter. To understand the rest of the book it really would be helpful if one knew the battles and places and all inolved. I got lost with all the names I had never heard. To understand I would have liked to had in depth notes to explain what was going on and when, but I did read it all and for free made it even better. I thank Amazon for putting this on for Free for Kindles.

3.0 out of 5 stars Charming but Archaic Translation 7 Dec. 2012
By Demeter - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I used this translation for a course that I was taking in mythology.

Pros: It's FREE.

Cons: The flow of the story is difficult to follow because the translation is written in such archaic english that it almost needs translating!
3.0 out of 5 stars Hard, a bit dry, but worth reading 26 Mar. 2015
By Liam Cady - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Wow, that was hard to get through. It feels a lot like a workout when you are out of shape, very difficult, hard to work on, but rewarding.

I didn't love everything, and there was a lot that went over my head, but on the whole I am glad I read it. This book would be best read by people already familiar with Roman mythology and heroes.

This edition has page numbers included in the actual text, which can be a bit jarring, especially if you use "text to speech."
