A Classic

A great way to get to know this classic, Anton Lesser is excellent as narrator and the story is thrilling. Phrases such as 'Wine dark sea' and 'His words had wings' are set into context and the actions of the Gods are brought to life in this vivid retelling of The Odyssey. This is a classic in every sense of the word.

Great Adventure

Awesome listen. I have always wanted to read the book. Listening to it really get's a person into the story. I'm waiting to rub some olive oil on my skin and I am now a Zeus fearing man.LOL Great story.
