Adventures of Odysseus
review 1: This one started out promising, and ended okay, but there was just so much unwanted information (do I really need two pages of someone putting on makeup?). If a hundred pages had been cut out this would have been great. Once I employed my skim reading techniques I was able to finish. I read another review of this book where they made the comment that all the men are described as handsome, so while reading the book, that became annoying. When the story focused on Odysseus it was compelling, but it was his companion, epertius, that was not so interesting. Note to self: dont bother with the sequels.
review 2: I really enjoyed this first novel in Glyn Iliffe's historical fantasy series about Odysseus and the Trojan War. Partly because he writes how I like to w
... morerite and what I like to read but also for his great ability to recreate a sense of the ancient world. Glyn does not shy away from bringing the gods into the story which adds a whole other dimension to the novels. The characters are also very human. I would highly recommend the books in this series. Be sure to read them in order. less
