I'm listening to it for the second/third time now, reading along with traditional verse and doing google searches on the names i don't know. What a fabulous story. I totally give this a thumbs up!
Tolkein took a lot from the Aeneid. Listen for Camilla and think about Eowyn and many more examples.
The story of the Trojan Horse is here, not in the Illiad. This is a GREAT work.
At the beginning of part 2 Lamb says the Capuans were discussing the medicine of Galen. This is 215 BC. Galen was not born until 129 AD. I find it astonishing no one ever noticed this! But I love Griffin's read. I just hope there aren't too many of these mistakes......ones I haven't caught.
