Very good

Enjoyed the narration and translation very much. It is better to listen to Homer rather than read the translations on paper.

Fall in love with this new translation

Even more captivating than its sister saga "Iliad" this translation and performance succeeds brilliantly in bringing a historic classic alive for the modern listener/reader. The images are vibrant, the saga captivates. Absolutely a fabulous listen - it is as if you are sitting around a fire as the storyteller takes you on a journey!
