    Avis de l'équipe

    Few stories last a generation, and even fewer can survive the rise and fall of civilizations. Homer's Odyssey has, like few other texts, entertained and educated people since around the end of the 8th century BC. The sequel to the Iliad, this tale is the great journey of Odysseus after the fall of Troy. Norman Dietz, an award-winning narrator, gives a serious performance and brings an authority to the text, ensuring listeners will enjoy hearing Homer's epic poem in the same oral tradition loved by the ancient Greeks.

    Description

    Surviving the Trojan War was just the beginning of the adventure for Odysseus. What lay ahead was a journey home that would last for years as he encountered gods and monsters before finally returning home - only to face the greatest threat to his happiness of all. This translation of Homer's classic tale captures all the timeless excitement and gripping drama that have made it a favorite for centuries.

    A good reading of a classic

    This is a fine reading for listening. If you are a scholar, or have a hard time with some audio books, it might not be for you. It is not written in a completely contemporary style so you need to have a long attention span to understand what is happenning.

    The Odyssey by Homer

    This is a good modern version of The Odyssey, but I prefer the translation by Robert Fitzgerald which has a more poetic flavor. Norman Dietz is a good narrator. He speaks clearly and makes an interesting listen. I would recommend this audio book for those who would like a modern version.

    Not Enough Information in the Listing

    Telling us that the author of Odyssey is "Homer" a person who may or may not have ever existed, misses by a wide, wide margin the essential bit of information we need to made a decision about this recording. Namely, WHO IS THE TRANSLATOR? Who took the Greek and translated it into 'contemporary' English. And what does contemporary mean in this case, 1750, 1850, 1950 2004?

    The Stuttering Odyssey

    as you may surmise, the performance of this book is a bit glitchy, it occasionally skips like a clipped stutter.

    Timeless book One pet peeve

    My Clasics Education may be rusty...however Ar"Gives " shouldn't be pronounced Ar"Jives". The meter of the poem doesn't require it and I can't find any instance of pronouncing it thus.
    I'll stand corrected graciously if anyone disagrees with me :)

    A Grand Adventure story.

    Was curious about this story and I'm glad I got to listen to this story. The narrator was a bit fast at times and I wish he did a better job at giving various characters different voices but I enjoyed it nonetheless.
