Description

The Iliad:
Join Achilles at the Gates of Troy as he slays Hector to Avenge the death of Patroclus. Here is a story of love and war, hope and despair, and honor and glory. The recent major motion picture Helen of Troy starring Brad Pitt proves that this epic is as relevant today as it was twenty five hundred years ago when it was first written. So journey back to the Trojan War with Homer and relive the grandest adventure of all times.

The Odyssey:
Journey with Ulysses as he battles to bring his victorious, but decimated, troops home from the Trojan War, dogged by the wrath of the god Poseidon at every turn. Having been away for twenty years, little does he know what awaits him when he finally makes his way home. 

These two books are some of the most important books in the literary canon, having influenced virtually every adventure tale ever told. And yet they are still accessible and immediate, and now you can have both in one volume.

Narrator was awful

A classic of epic proportions too bad the narrator did not do this story justice. All characters have the same tone and voice and quite unfortunately the narrator's voice was very painful to listen to .

Stale and monotone

I do not like this book because the narrator's voice is unpleasant and monotone. There is no life to this story and I cannot listen to it.

Always wanted to read this.

Always wanted to read this but the task seemed to daunting. It was hard slog just listening. Glad I did it though. The text fills in the many gaps left open by the hollywood machine.

What a great narrator

I have multiple versions of Iliad/Odyssey. Most of the others have stayed faithful to hexameter, and I zone out after awhile.

This version by Purkey is much easier to listen to. Recommended. (Be sure to get the Kindle version first.)

narrator lacks intrigue

I couldn't even get through the first 5 minutes if you're going to read an "epic novel" the narrator should be more intriguing and make you want to listen

The Iliad & the Odyssey

Classic books centering on the Trojan War in the Iliad and after the Trojan War, just trying to get home in the Odyssey. If you have a taste of a truly bloody war, then this is a book for you.

classic tales

what a amazing story. I favored the odyssey more. the 20 year journey seemed worth it at the end.
