Telemachus' father, Odysseus, went off to war before Telemachus was born...and never came back. Aged 16, Telemachus finds himself abandoned, his father's house overrun with men pursuing his beautiful mother, Penelope, and devouring the family's wealth. He determines to leave Ithaca, his island home, and find the truth. What really happened to his father? Was Odysseus killed on his journey home from the war? Or might he one day return to take his revenge?
Telemachus' journey takes him across the landscape of Bronze Age Greece in the aftermath of the great Trojan War. Veterans hide out in the hills. Chieftains, scarred by war, hoard their treasure in luxurious palaces. Ithaca retells Homer's famous poem, The Odyssey, from the point of view of Odysseus' resourceful and troubled son, describing Odysseus' extraordinary voyage from Troy to the gates of hell and Telemachus' own journey from boyhood to the desperate struggle that wins back his home...and his father.

Boring, waste of time
It’s like someone just taught the author of this book what an adjective is and he was mind blown by such a thing. Other than that I have no idea why someone recommended this book to me. Author just talks about total crap the WHOLE book. Who cares what every single person is wearing in this book, I DONT
