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

The Illiad

My memory of the first translation is a little dim from many years back so I didn't expect to enjoy this version quite as much as I have. It ranks as one of my favorites due to the classic narrative of what must be a master of tale telling. I can only imagine what it must have been like to sit for the epic, magnificent oral readings that this originated from.
