    In Homer's account in The Odyssey, Penelope - wife of Odysseus and cousin of the beautiful Helen of Troy - is portrayed as the quintessential faithful wife, her story a salutary lesson through the ages. Left alone for 20 years when Odysseus goes off to fight in the Trojan war after the abduction of Helen, Penelope manages, in the face of scandalous rumours, to maintain the kingdom of Ithaca.

    Vered says: "A good listen"
    "Strange but Interesting"
    Overall

    The narrators are quite exceptional in their delivery of Penelope's point of view, and the chorus line lends the book a feature of Ulysses' own epic. However, the story looses imagination towards the end and seems to rush to conclusion instead of cultivating Penelope's actions a bit more. Overall a satisfying, and short listen.
