    This is the perfect ORAL reading for young children The language is beautiful and very similar to the word pictures Homer displayed for his audience I recommend that adults that missed out on The Iliad and The Odyssey as students begin their TRUE education by reading this version The list of characters is HUGE so this easy to read version puts everyone is place on the stage of Ancient Greece If you have never read Greek Mythology have your smartphone off for Googling because even though the This is the perfect ORAL reading for young children The language is beautiful and very similar to the word pictures Homer displayed for his audience I recommend that adults that missed out on The Iliad and The Odyssey as students begin their TRUE education by reading this version The list of characters is HUGE so this easy to read version puts everyone is place on the stage of Ancient Gr...

    This was an amazing edition The one thing that might irritate some people is that its a childrens book But its a childrens book from like 1918, so nothan LoTR is a childrens book Anyway I m pretty sure all that means in this context is that the pacing is faster than in the original, some of the blood guts weird ancient times sex is taken out Pacing in ancient epics is always snail like so this might not be a negative depending on whos reading.The ancient greek esque illustrations This was ...
