The text is beautiful and moving. The narration is excruciating. He ends every line with a rising intonation that drove me absolutely crazy. It's such a shame -- I feel like this is an ideal work to be experienced aurally!

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?
It's a great idea: the lost names of real human beings that Greece and Troy saw fit to sacrifice to an immortality for others who had a lot already but wanted more. I tried several times to get through this but couldn't put it all together. In fact, my insistence on trying several times to make heads or tails only resulted in futility. I have to admit that I never got to the end but that I sure tried. I was expecting some type of intimacy with common folk barricaded inside the walls or dying beneath the sun.
What do you think your next listen will be?
Modern Greek language or George RR Martin
Would you be willing to try another one of Mark Ashby’s performances?
I have no reason to remember his name, so perhaps by chance I will stumble across him again, for better or worse.
What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?
Eternal frustration. I can't quite claim my anger and sadness are the author's fault; ay, the world is far too imminently catastrophic. This poem was a great idea, so I'll go with disappointment. Coupled with my city's traffic, this audiobook just made my ADD worse.
