Publisher's Summary

Two major epic poems came from ancient Greece and had the power to shape our culture for centuries. They are both attributed to the blind poet Homer, and are called Iliad and Odyssey.

The Odyssey is the story of the Greek hero Odysseus, or Ulysses, who began a journey home after the fall of Troy. It will take him ten years of marvelous and terrible encounters before he finally reaches his native city, where everyone assumed he was dead. There will he find his wife Penelope, famously weaving and unweaving a never-ending tapestry while obnoxious suitors are competing for her hand. Once again, Odysseus will have to outsmart his opponents in order to be reunited with his family.

The Iliad and the Odyssey are the oldest extant works of Western literature. They are of tremendous cultural importance, and their magic is still strongly alive.

    "37 minutes?"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    I didn't realize when I bought this that it was just a very small exerpt of the story. There are other inexpensive classics thar appear to contain the whole book.


    What could Homer have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Providing the whole story would have been appreciated rather than just a few minutes of it.


    Any additional comments?

    I feel ripped off.

    "Abridged Not the full story"

    Thought this was the full book, but only covers the initial plight Telemachus faces at home and Odysseus' return. Good narator so I purchased not seeing the very short listen time as compared to the other versions.
