This is the most challenging book I have ever read, but the challenge was definitely worth it. I've been wanting to read this book for a while and take my time reading it. I enjoyed both poems. The Iliad was heartbreaking, while The Odyssey was more adventurous. The Gods and Goddesses are very manipulative, they're definitely not to be messed with. Both the mortals and immortals are ruthless. I could definitely see myself rereading this book.
