    One of the most extraordinary achievements in world literary history. Too good to be relegated to the dustbin of high-school required reading, the first of Homer's epic poems tells of the counsel of Nestor, Achilles' slaying of Hector, and the defeat of the Trojans by the Greeks. (Translated by Samuel Butler.)

    James M says: "Illiad at three or four times the price worth it?"
    "Recommended"
    Overall

    In the past, I had bogged down when trying to read The Illiad, but the Audible version helped me wade through the less inspiring portions of the story. The book reminds me of Moby Dick in the sense that the story can get lost in details at times. The pay-off is when you can look back on the completed tale and see that it has taught you something. The only negative to the Audible version is that each book, or chapter, begins with a synopsis of what is going to happen in the chapter as if the reader (listener) will not be able to figure it out. The result is that it takes away some of the excitement and drama.
