Surviving the Trojan War was just the beginning of the adventure for Odysseus. What lay ahead was a journey home that would last for years as he encountered gods and monsters before finally returning home - only to face the greatest threat to his happiness of all. This translation of Homer's classic tale captures all the timeless excitement and gripping drama that have made it a favorite for centuries.
Cosa pensano gli ascoltatori di The Odyssey
A good reading of a classic
This is a fine reading for listening. If you are a scholar, or have a hard time with some audio books, it might not be for you. It is not written in a completely contemporary style so you need to have a long attention span to understand what is happenning.

Not Enough Information in the Listing
Telling us that the author of Odyssey is "Homer" a person who may or may not have ever existed, misses by a wide, wide margin the essential bit of information we need to made a decision about this recording. Namely, WHO IS THE TRANSLATOR? Who took the Greek and translated it into 'contemporary' English. And what does contemporary mean in this case, 1750, 1850, 1950 2004?
