Publisher's Summary

The Trojan War is over, and Odysseus, the cunning king of Ithaca, sets out for home, his wife Penelope, and his son Telemachus. It proves a long, 10-year journey, fraught with dangers, from Polyphemus, the one-eyed Cyclops, and the seductive Sirens, to the love of Calypso on her all-too-comfortable isle. When he arrives in Ithaca, he has to contend with a group of suitors who have been pressing his wife to forget about her husband, admit she is a widow, and marry one of them.Anton Lesser, one of Britain's finest audiobook stars, brings this great classic to life using a new and imaginative translation by Ian Johnston.

The Odyssey

This book is really nice to read expecially if you like reading Greek myths. In this story alowne, I came across lots different adventures and things that went wrong. Odyssious is a really good character and I think he's lucky because he always managees tp sirvove whenever dezaster struk him and his crew. The nirator is good and I'm sure that anyone would enjoy Homer's story and also enjoy the differt adventures that Odyssious found himself in.
