Well im going to be completely honest about this book. When I first opened the book The Odyssey, I was a little hessitant to reading it. I was a fhreshman in high school and I HAD to read it, it was an obligation because it was a class project that we had to do. But in the end it was all a good read. The book is filled with a wonderfull adventure and action and also love. I recomend this book to anyone who is seeking a thrilling adventure. By the end of this book i was glad that I didn't slack off and actually did the read for this fantastic book. You willnot be dissappointed afterwards.

Still relevent today.

While a harder read for kids, The Odyssey is still a much-needed read in schools today. Not only can students focus on the surface area motifs of home and heroes, but they can also be pushed deeper into analyizing what real life issues the "monsters" in the story represent. This story has been around for thousands of years, and rightfully so!

    Enjoyable

    Read this book for two reasons:
    1) It is a highly regarded classic
    2) The language makes insulting someone sound ten times funnier

    Name Making Process ~~ Step 5-Additional Tips & Examples

    Tips:<br>
    *Choosing a name based off your pelt, eyes, or personality can be bland. Choose the exotic names as well. Add spice to the word.<br>
    *Writing things down, on paper, on your phone, can really help. Try writing the names, colours, mixtures, ect. that you like.<p>

    Examples:<br>
    Pelt~lilac lynx point<br>
    Eye colour~sea green<br>
    First part if name~Soul<br>
    Second part of name~-kit, -paw, -catcher<br>
    Full name~Soulkit, Soulpaw, Soulcatcher<p>

    Pelt~black and grey swirl<br>
    Eye colour~deep copper<br>
    First part of name~Shadow<br>
    Second part of name~-kit, -paw, -kissed<br>
    Full name~Shadowkit, Shadowpaw, Shadowkissed<p>

    Pelt~blue point<br>
    Eye colour~dark blue<br>
    First part of name~Venato<br>
    Second part of name~-kit, -paw, -strike<br>
    Full name~Venatokit, Venatopaw, Venatostrike<p>

    Pelt~cream chinchilla with cinnamon streaks<br>
    Eye colour~grey-violet<br>
    First part of name~Spell<br>
    Second part of name~-kit, -paw, -caster<br>
    Full name~Spellkit, Spellpaw, Spellcaster<p>

    Pelt~Abyssinian chocolate with black smoke swirls<br>
    Eye colour~deep gold<br>
    First part of name~Cypress<br>
    Second part of name~-kit, -paw, -poisoning<br>
    Full name~Cypresskit, Cypresspaw, Cypresspoisoning<p>

    Please do not use these names (Soulcaster, Shadowkissed, Venatostrike, Spellcaster, & Cypresspoisoning) without first talking to me. I might be using one of them already. Otherwise, create along. If you wish to post about the cat you've created, please post it at result three. If you have additions for the first part of the name, please post them at result one, stating that they are the first part names and, if possible, in alphabetical order. You can do the same for the second part of the name, but at the second result. Anything else you want to add, please first talk to me at result four. Thanks! LightBlood.

    Time Has Not Been Good to This Book

    First off let me just say that I like this book. I understand it is one of the greatest books ever written and rightfully so. It is filled with magic, adventure, and epic storytelling. So saying that the book has not really aged well. I am sorry but I have to speak for the modern readers of this story and say that this book will probably bore you. The language although beautiful is incredibly hard to understand. You have to reaf very carefully to undetstand what is going on. And sure maybe if I were living back in those days I would give it a good review, but were not living back in those days. Were living in today and unless your a history major your going to have a jard time understsnding this book. So if your looking for entertainment you might want to pick up another book but if your looking for a history lesson this is the book for you.
