Great Adventure

Awesome listen. I have always wanted to read the book. Listening to it really get's a person into the story. I'm waiting to rub some olive oil on my skin and I am now a Zeus fearing man.LOL Great story.

A Classic

A great way to get to know this classic, Anton Lesser is excellent as narrator and the story is thrilling. Phrases such as 'Wine dark sea' and 'His words had wings' are set into context and the actions of the Gods are brought to life in this vivid retelling of The Odyssey. This is a classic in every sense of the word.

His words had wings

No idea what that means; but you will hear it 10,000 times. Wow - those Greeks knew how to have a good whinge; and - wow - Homer's world is utterly bereft of morality. Shrewd Odysseus is surely one of the least likable heroes in the canon.

I had read this previously and was expecting something more serious . . . - but this was highly enjoyable and actual comedy gold in some places. Full credit to the narrator and translator for making this so enjoyable. Highly recommended.
