Homer’s marathon poem – the companion to his other masterwork, The Iliad – remains a cornerstone of world literature. After the fall of Troy, Odysseus treks home over a ten-year-span, encountering mythical creatures and incurring the wrath of gods. Meanwhile, thinking Odysseus dead, his wife and son struggle defend his crown. The ultimate journey story, Homer’s tale defines the word “epic.”

The Odyssey

But beware - ifi you want the Fagles translation, this is not it. The Fagles translation is superior to this.

Definitely not a Fagles edition

Wish I had looked at reviews before downloading - this is definitely NOT a Fagles edition. I purchased it as a quick way to look up quotes for a paper using a Fagles edition - this won't be of much help. It even uses different names for main characters - (Ulysses vs Odysseus).

Not Fagles

This version here is the Odyssey but it is decidedly NOT Fagles translation. It's a fine translation of the Odyssey but if you are looking for Fagles, as I was, this isn't it. At least it was inexpensive...

a treasure for all

This book is the most amazing book I've ever read! From now on I can't look at a book, or to be exact, anything ever again! If I were to have had a chance, and be able to sell it for $500,000, I wouldn't. I recomend you read it!

A True Masterpiece

It's pretty astonishing that you can buy a classic book written in the 8th Century BC for just $2.99. I find it very strange reading such a complicated, ancient, poetic masterpiece on a 21st century tablet, it's pretty bizarre! If you don't know, The Odyssey is a poem about a Greek legend and his journey home after the collapse of Troy. A fulfilling read if you can fight your way through it, however I found the poetic language a struggle at times, so be warned it is really heavy going.

A Classic

I had to read part of this book in high school. At the time I found it somewhat interesting but difficult to get through. I was required to read it again in college and got more out of it on that go-around. It's certainly a classic work and worth your time to read it since so much of it is still referenced in today's world.

So vidid!

I've read the Odyssey several times, in a few different translations. This is the one that brought it to life for me.

hard but worthwhile

it wasn't easy, but the Odyssey and the Iliad are such basic texts that all this effort was well worth it. I still have a hard time believing that the text was written in roughly 800 BC, yet the insight into what it's like to be human seemed so real.
