Publisher's Summary

The long siege is ended. Troy lies in ashes. The black ships of the Greek war-host set sail for home – but for King Odysseus of Ithaca, the return voyage holds hazards far greater than any he faced in the Trojan War.
A sequel to Black Ships Before Troy, Rosemary Sutcliff’s retelling of The Odyssey transforms Homer’s complex epic poem into a traveller’s tale with a cast of men, magicians and monsters: the flesh-eating Cyclops, the deadly enchantment of Circe and Odysseus’s battle to regain his wife and long-lost kingdom.

A great reimagining of Homer's classic tale

Rosemary Sutcliff's retelling of the Odyssey, Homer's immortal tale of heroism and journeying home, is magnificent. Robert Glenister brings it to life with verve and dramatic flair, and makes this audiobook an absolute treasure. This audiobook belongs in your collection, and will be a regular listen for those who love the classics.

Excellent as an Ancient Greece Studies go-along

Any additional comments?

We're enjoying having both of Sutcliffe's Ancient Greece stories read to us with flare by Robert Glenister as we study Ancient Greece.
I was feeling disinclined towards reading yet another book about a.Greek gods out aloud to the children, yet I was really wanting to cover at least 2 of Homers epic tales, in a child friendly format - this audio book fits the bill perfectly, and I'm getting to enjoy the story as a listener too.
Highly recommend!
