The iliad

Legendary classic that's been around longer than the bible and still has a more enticing storyline.

Milestone book man 1 ,

Iliad

I think that the book was great as I am in seventh grade the book was also fairly challenging but interesting and the ancient Greeks were in my perspective to centered on the ideology that there are many gods if "they" had based religion on a simpler base as monotheism then the Greeks in my opinion would have prospered much longer than they did over all I think that the book was very changing to any that would like to read it however be prepared to think

Mak đź–¤ ,

Blurs Roman and Greek culture to add diversity to an already verbose text.

The old English is eloquent and refreshing. I think there was an over-compensation in diversifying the names. It illustrates Grecian and Roman culture as one and their gods as one of the same. For instance, labeling Athena as Minerva to avoid being repetitive. However, the old English makes this unnecessary and blurs very different perceptions of the same thing.
It bugs me like an itch that needs to be scratched. A great simple example of the difference in the cultural perception of gods and life can be found in father and author Rick Riordan’s Heroes of Olympus series.
