    more from this reviewer

    Something for everyone

    Virgil's Aeneid is an inspiring thriller. It combines action with mythology, romance and drama. <BR/><BR/>Along with being a beautifully written epic, it is also a historic piece that periodically incorporates Roman history into it's pages. <BR/><BR/>A fan of any of the aforementioned genres will be interested in the Aeneid.

    A story of success for an individual and a people

    This combines the Iliad and the Odyssey of Greek, yet is different and Roman, and as those epics, it ends well. Every time I read this I learn something new that I missed previously.

    Excellent tale!

    I was completely absorbed by this epic poem - much more than I thought I was going to be! The ability to skip to the endnotes with my Nook helped immensely with understanding the text - I know that I wouldn't have bothered with reading endnotes had I been reading from a book and would have missed the detail provided by the translator. I am going to reread The Illiad via my Nook for this very reason.
