The Odyssey by Homer

Yay! I finally finished!! I actually finished it over he weekend, but I was too lazy to write a review. Okay, this book was a school required book. I’ll be honest, I didn’t really like it.

If you’re super into Greek mythology, I’d probably recommend it. But I’m not. The story was mildly interesting but everyone a character was mentioned it went into its heritage and made the book quite lengthy. Reading the book kind of felt like running through water.

I was surprised at the format of the book, though. I though it would be totally Odysseus telling his story. No, actually it started out with his son looking for him. There were lots of flashbacks and changes of points of view.

It wasn’t bad (like The Grapes of Wrath from last year) but its not my kinda book.
