How do you not recommend a classic?

It has been years since I read Homer, but I bought this to review when I get a chance. That is one of the delightful things about ebooks, they can be stored and carried. At the present I own over 150 digital books; I'll never go back to paper. There are, of course, those Luddits who shun this marvelous technology sometimes look at my Color Nook and when I show them what it can do and what "I" can do with it, some of them begin to wobble a bit.
In addition to the books, magazines and newspapers I take with me, I carry documents, pictures and gobs of videos, even some of my own. I have one video in which I talk about the advantages of portable electronic readers. Maybe I ought to start marketing some of these myself?

You may want to buy The Odyssey rather than trying this book's version.

The Illiad was a great read in this book. I was suprised to see the digital layout change completely when it went on to the odyssey. It may just be me but I had to buy another version to be able to finish reading it.

    Very Well Writte

    This book is the original. Most people think that others are, but this holds the throne. The Iliad and the Odyssey of Homer is one of the best literature books out there, in the world of books.

    Love it but, what order is it in?

    I love Greek and Roman myths(thanks to Rick Riordan) I even disided to do my monthly book project on this!(7th grade) But I need to kniw. In this book is the Illiad or the Odessy first? Any way five stars and recomended to all Greek and Roman myth-lovers!( WARNING! Some names in this book are mixed with greek and roman names( and others). For example, Hera is Juno and Zeus is Jove(<-IDK) but the first book is writen in the greek point of view.
