Readers' reviews:

“The Odyssey is, well, the Odyssey. Beyond being a tremendously exciting read, it is a foundational work in Western literature. It is a glorious story of love and war, gods and humans, adventure in and around the Mediterranean (and, some argue, out to the West Indies).” (Everyman, goodreads.com)

“This is one story that really stuck with me all these years. This story takes you on a breathtaking journey that will bring you to your feet in a standing ovation! The story of love, betrayal, courage, honour and more is timeless. The characters come to life. The Odyssey will capture your mind and emotions, and you won't want to put it down. A great adventure.” (Meg, goodreads.com)

“The Odyssey is a touching story of faith, loyalty, and the importance of family. Homer does an amazing job spinning a tale that is utterly riveting. It is a book you can read again and again without ever getting tired of the wonderfully moving prose. The Odyssey will capture your mind and emotions, and you won't want to put it down. A great adventure.” (Tracy, goodreads.com)
