    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.

    Sam says: "Worth the price, worth the time"
    "Timeless stories, fairly good narration"
    Overall

    As for Homer's stories the Illiad and the Odyssey, they anchor western literature. This narration is decent. It is not annoying; it is eloquent and careful. It isn't 5 stars, but probable between 3 and 4. Bottom line: this is a solid purchase for your audio library.
