    One of the great masterpieces of Western literature, The Odyssey chronicles the many trials and adventures Odysseus must pass through on his long journey home from the Trojan wars. Though the stormy god of the ocean is determined to keep him off course, Odysseus is clever and has the brilliant goddess Athena on his side.

    Tad Davis says: "Great prose translation, great reading"
    "Just a gem"
    Overall

    This version, with this narrator, is just a gem. The Anthony Heald makes all the protagonists and all that happens, clear and understandable. He is a delight to listen to. The translation makes ancient Homer very accessible to my modern ears. The story is interesting and exciting. It is a great way to get insight about the daily lives and mores of ancient kings, princes, and common people. (Not at all like the "sword and sandal" epics that used to come out of Hollywood.)
