    The first of Homer's great epic poems, the Iliad portrays the final days of the Trojan war. The Iliad has stood the test of time and is still one of (it not the) best depictions of ancient warfare. It is an essential precursor to the infamous journey of Odysseus. Translated by Stanley Lombardo.

    Daryl says: "Good for first timers"
    "I liked the audio version of the Iliad!"

    Story
    What made the experience of listening to Iliad the most enjoyable?

    I actually don't have a lot of time to actually read, so this is perfect for me. I can listen when i am moving in between classes, on my way to and from school, and while i am doing other things.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    The Iliad is a classic! There are so many characters to choose from that it is hard to pick a favorite. If i had to chose a favorite, I would say Diomedes! That dude is a beast and really fun to listen to.


    What does Stanley Lombardo and Susan Sarandon bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I really enjoyed the pace of the reading. It was faster than i am used to reading. I also like the tone for each of the characters in the book. Stanley really gave an outstanding performance to all the speakers in this book. I also like that Susan gave the summaries before the next book started, she was pretty awsome as well!


    Any additional comments?

    I would recommend this app to anyone that likes to listen to stories. Whatever your preferrence of genre, this is an awsome app and audiobook. I wish they would actually do this with some of my boring textbooks! The only reason I didn't rate this a 5 star was because I wish they would have added a search bar in each chapter so that I could find a reference to go back to when I want to find something specific. Other than that I was very pleased with this audiobook!
