    This translation is fine, though rather dry, and it has one big

    This translation is fine, though rather dry, and it has one big problem: it uses the Roman names of the gods. Since this is a GREEK epic, it really should be using the Greek names (Zeus, not Jupiter; Hera, not Juno; Athena, not Minerva; and so forth). It will however, give you solid understanding of the events of the epic in an inexpensive format.

    Great Book - Want a different Art Work Cover

    I give this an honest 4 stars for the fact that I love reading this kind of stuff. However, my one wish is that they could change the art cover for it. I also bought this book in Barnes and Noble Leather form and it has a nice rich, look to it. I was hoping they would just have that has the photo for the nook.

    But again, don't get me wrong. I love the stories in it.
