The Odyssey

The OdysseyThe Odyssey by Gareth Hinds
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I really enjoyed this version of the classic "The Odyssey" by Homer. What a great way for young people to be introduced to ancient literature. The artwork is remarkable, and the retelling of this adventure kept me turning the pages. I think the only turn-off could be those danged Greek names, but there are ways of getting around difficult names, (right, Ms. Bouffidis???) Everyone is in here, from Cyclops to Calypso, and there are battles galore, disasters, and all the difficult things Odysseus had to do to get back home to his wife. This was a fun read!
