From Homer Yes... Stephen Mitchell ....no...
I love the Illiad, What turns me of is this book is 1/3 commentary, and the remaining 2/3's appears to be only part of the full Iliad (even taking account of the 'extra' parts).
Good reader.... like
Yep all of the above
This book- dislike not fully the Iliad. Just talking and bits and pieces...Baby Food? don't know..
The music in the wording was enjoyable. As soon as I finished, I had to go immediately to the Odyssey.
I learned what Homer said and not what Hollywood’s distortions
It was exhilarating and heightened my imagination. I’m eager to find additional classics from the period.
It is kind of fun to revisit all the books I should have read in school.
maybe I was distracted, but I've listened to the first couple of chapters and I don't know what the heck is going on or what it's about
Yes, I will give this a second chance and re-listen from the start.
I don't know if it's the narrator or that the book is boring.
I listen to a lot of books while driving but if I am lost after the first 1/2 hour or so it's really tough to keep going or start over.
Read the story and leave out the commentary. There seemed to be more comment than story
Just translate the story
It was slow and monotone
Thank goodness I could return this to get something better c
Alfred Molina's voice is very beautiful.
This is not a good translation. It's more fair to call this a modern epic poem abridgement of the Iliad. The tipoff is that weird, weird introduction. The
I would have loved the story if it had all been there. The only reason I marked one star is because thats the lowest it goes.
They didn't finish. The book stopped at Hector's burial. Nothing was there about taking Troy or the Trojan Horse. Immensely disappointing.
Lots, would have more if the story went to completion
Yes put the rest of the story in it. This may be my last purchase from Audible.
