Publisher's Summary

This reissue of the 1919 classic combines the immortal stories from Homer's Iliad and Odyssey into one glorious saga of heroism and magical adventure. Beloved by generations, Padraic Colum's masterful retelling of these epic adventures is remarkably fresh, consistently spellbinding, and unmatched for its richness and poetry. It carries a new generation of young readers to ancient Greece with Odysseus and Achilles who, guided by the gods, seek vengeance against the Trojans, and follows Odysseus on his perilous journey, through the land of the Cyclopes, past Circe the Enchantress, the terrible Charybdis and the six-headed serpent Scylla.

Chopped About

Very disappointed with this audiobook. Although it is pleasant to listen to and the stories are beautiful, there is only 1 file and you cannot choose to listen to individual chapters or separate the stories of The Odyssey and The Iliad.
Such a shame.
