    Little is known about the Ancient Greek oral poet Homer, the supposed 8th century BC author of the world-read Iliad and his later masterpiece, The Odyssey. These classic epics provided the basis for Greek education and culture throughout the classical age and formed the backbone of humane education through the birth of the Roman Empire and the spread of Christianity.

    "As if Homer was reciting the stories himself"
    Overall

    While I read the cliff notes way back in school, I could never sit down and actually read these books all the way through on my own. Now I know why. These are fantastic stories meant to be TOLD. The excellent narration voice and style often made me feel like I was sitting in a palace 2800 years ago listening to Homer weave his terrific tales in real life.

    This was one I never wanted to end.

    Since both stories flow into each other, you really will want to hear both in order to follow the stories of these great Greek heros, so this two book collection is a perfect compilation.
