Firefly, September 3, 2010 (view all comments by Firefly)
Unlike the other reviewers, my son LOVES this book! He read it for the first time in the 7th grade on the recommendation of some friends who'd read it in grade school, and it remains one of his all time favorite books. In fact, he loved it so much that he read The Iliad from which this is based (which he also loved).

This was an assigned reading book for my freshman class. The first time I read it, I had no clue what was going on. I'll have to read it 3-4 times before I have any idea what is going on. There were way too many characters, and it was fairly boring. It's too complicated for freshman!!!

This book is horrible! I was forced to read it and when I finished I had no idea what I read! It is SO confusing! There are like 1 million characters and there is NO way that a freshman in high school can even come close to reading and understanding! My whole grade was forced to read this and I could not find ONE person who liked it!!! (except all of the weird nerds) If you like greek mythology then you will LOVE THIS BOOK!! but if you don't... DON'T EVEN THINK ABOUT IT! As a matter or a fact, DON'T even look at the cover!!! It is soooooooooooooo bad!!!! Did i mention that this book STINKS!!!?!? UGH it is torture to have to read such a horrible book!

Product details 320 pages Laurel-Leaf Books - English 9780553494839 Reviews:
"Synopsis" by , US
"Synopsis" by , The Story of the Iliad

Homer's epic poem, The Illiad, is one of the greatest adventure stories of all time. In it, the abduction of the legendary beauty, Helen of Troy, leads to a conflict in which even the gods and goddesses take sides and intervene. It is in the Trojan War that the most valiant heroes of the ancient world are pitted against one another. Here Hectore, Ajax, Achilles, and Odysseus meet their most formidable challenges and in some casas their tragic ends.

Rosemary Sutcliff makes such extraordinary stories as those of those Trojan horse, of Aphrodite and the golden apple, and of the fearsome warrior women Amazons, accessible to contemporary young people.

From the Hardcover edition.
