Review: The Illiad of Homer, The Odyssey
The Illiad of Homer, The Odyssey by Mortimer Jerome Adler
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
The Iliad and the Odyssey are, of course, must-reads. It's hard to comment on classics like these, but, for those who haven't yet read them: I think the Odyssey is more entertaining than the Iliad because the action continues throughout whereas the Iliad has many breaks in the action to engage in the kind of lists of unpronounceable names you see in some places in the Old Testament of the Bible. Both of them are, however, fantastic.
