The Odyssey Book Summary

The poem mainly centers on the Greek hero Odysseus (known as Ulysses in Roman myths) and his journey home after the fall of Troy. It takes Odysseus ten years to reach Ithaca after the ten-year Trojan War.  In his absence, it is assumed he has died, and his wife Penelope and son Telemachus must deal with a group of unruly suitors, the Mnesteres (Greek: Μνηστῆρες) or Proci, who compete for Penelope's hand in marriage.

The Odyssey - Homer Book Reviews

  • Eh not great (Sido88)

    Boo boo
  • Good book (Kyky12345 56)

    Good book
  • The Homer the great (Gary Carter kid)

    Homer made the book well thought and plus he was blind and made a cool and awesome story about the BATTLE OF TROY!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Over all the book is the bomb that exploded in greatness
  • Use SparkNotes to Enjoy (mrjunuh)

    I'm glad I read it, but don't be fooled that you can read this translation without some type of Spark/CliffNotes.
  • Pathetic. (Flaws 2 Fatal)

    Watered down beyond recognition, and why does it rhyme? Doesn't deserve to exist lol
  • What the DUECE (KourtneyW23)

    This book sucked. I had to read it for 9th grade. Who the heck likes Mythology? Weirdos.
  • 4/5 (Coltman98)

    This is a sequal to the Iliad and follows Odysseus as he travels from Troy. After being gone he is assumed dead and his family will have to fight their own battles. Odysseus on his travels home will test the Greek Gods and himself on his journey to his home, Ithica. This book is good for following the Iliad, but dissapoints with how slowly the book starts. Over all, I recommend this to anyone who is a fan of Homer.
  • Torture (Artivity030)

    I had to read this over the summer for school and it was absolute torture! I couldn't wait to get to the end! Absolutely hated it. I don't even know how people say they "enjoy" it.
  • Odyssey (Odd gyyvuvyuvyluful)

    It was OK. I disliked all that poetry though. Otherwise, not terrible.
  • Awesome (Ipad mother023)

    I'm in 7th grade and when I was in 5th they took me to a field trip to watch the odyssey as a musical it was awesome so I got thr book and said this is great! It gave me a little more details
