Publisher's Summary

The most powerful men in the world were all together in a circle in the middle of the room. Drawing their daggers, they cut their right hands and, above the pile of gold, swore Odysseus’ vow: Helen could marry whom she liked, and the Princes would defend them both…. Everyone’s heard of the wooden horse of Troy, and of the beauty of Helen. Well this is the story as Odysseus saw it, from his boyhood in Ithaca to his participation in the bloody Trojan war itself.

A fantastic introduction to Greek Mythology

I read this book as a child and was thrilled to find it on Audible. I have now passed it on to my daughter and I hope she gets as much enjoyment from it as I did. This book spawned my love of Greek Mythology. Tony Robinson is a genius! Fantastic!

Greatest Audio book of them all

I was thrilled to find this wonderfully narrated story from my childhood on audible.

Tony Robinson and Richard curtis put their own wonderful humour into the timeless tale of Homer's Illiad. A must listen for every young boy on a long car journey, with enough entertainment to keep all ears glued to the stereo.

Worth every penny.
