Customer Reviews of The Odyssey of Homer

Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lattimore is amazing If you glance at this book and notice that all the lines are written as verses, do not be alarmed, the verses are not difficult to understand. Lattimore's translation of Homer's The Odyssey is probably the best that you shall ever find, and it seems to remain truthful to the original, yet does not make it hard on the readers to understand. I highly recommend this edition for anyone interested in reading this epic.
