The Odyssey is the saga of the Greek hero Odysseus and his return voyage from the Trojan War. Having been away from home for many years Odysseus faces many challenges and adventures on his return journey to Ithaca. These include facing the one eyed giant called the Cyclops, the sorceress Circe, a visit to Hades, the Sirens, and the monsters Charybdis and Scylla. Upon his arrival home Odysseus defeats the suitors of his wife Penelope. The plain English prose translation by W. H. D. Rouse is the subject of this review and is highly readable. This epic story of adventure is one of the must read classics of world literature. Highly recommended.

Too hard to understand. Try No Fear on Spark Notes for translation.

Bought it for school-ONLY
Great product! Just not what I would choose to read if given a choice. The reader is fine, just not that into Homer 8b...

I would listen to Jacobi read the phone book
How fabulous to listen to this well done recording. Even though the stories are so familiar, this was really gripping, and I plan on revisiting this audiobook with regularity.
