Beutifully and thoroughly Narrated

Inspires you to read the original in its wonderful poetic splendour. I was amazingly surprised at the Odyssey. I loved it. So much more than the Iliad! Worth your while!

Honey, Im home!

Honey, I'm home - twenty years late! Adventure, love, war, one-eyed giants, wrathful gods, sultry sirens and a rather roundabout journey back home to the wife. The question is, did the fair Penelope believe his excuse that the traffic was a little heavy on the way home? An epic tale, never boring, very well read, with a wonderful flow and rhythm of language. It's a 2700 year-old precursor to the Lord of the Rings, the Hitchhiker?s Guide to the Galaxy and Alice in Wonderland. What our great-great-great (etc) grandparents listened round communal hearths, instead of watching reality shows and soap operas. Audio quality (at level 4) is excellent.
