Rated 3 out of 5 by from Worth the Read The Iliad may seem daunting but it is worth reading. The story itself is very interesting, it's quite different than the tales that have been depicted in movies and tv.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A tale of humanity and war. In this translation of Iliad we are immersed in an epic tale of humanity in the midst of war, the story of Hector to protect his city, Achilles for glory then terrible revenge. We see the pathos of humanity contrasted with the tantrums of the gods. Through his tale Homer explores the consequences of war, it's glory and cost.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ancient Gore I'm rereading this, having read it maybe twenty years ago, am enjoying it but I don't remember it being this violent and gory - Homer really seems to enjoy describing the different ways a spear can pierce a skull. The first book, the argument of Achilles and Agam, is still my favorite.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fascinating and Epic. #plumreview Perhaps the most interesting this epic war classic has to offer is the differing take on morality for ancient Greeks. To what may seem petulant and immature to modern readers, Achilles demands a completely understandable and in fact moral within the Ancient Greek view. A good primer that morality may not be as set in stone as we tend to think in modern times.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A great war epic This is a great book for anybody who is interested in greek history/mythology. As a fan of greco-roman themes I have watched many movies about the Trojan war, so it was interesting to finally read what is the basis for those films. It was interesting to see how dramatically different the movies are from the source material. The book ends before the sacking of Troy but to get answers from Homer read "The Odyssey" as it gives a few answers to what happened to some of the characters. This is one of my favourite books!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Read I picked this book up to read for school. I expected it to be a boring but it was a fantastic book filled with similes and imagery. It's was like going to the movies since the book goes in depth about the taste, the sounds, and the action. It felt as if the reader was at the Trojan war.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Universal Required Reading Homer's first epic poem displays the range of human emotions and vices from bravery to jealousy and envy in a wonderfully narrated tale. This ancient work should be required reading for all of humanity.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from All Hail, HOMER There is nothing that compares to the artistic delivery of such a respected author. Homer paints the story with such passion and power that includes the reader as either a Trojan Warrior or a Greek Soldier! Excellent!
