Publisher's Summary

Beneath the gaze of the gods, the mighty armies of Greece and Troy met in fierce and glorious combat, scrupulously following the text set forth in Homer's timeless narrative. But that was before 21st-century scholar Thomas Hockenberry stirred the bloody brew, causing an enraged Achilles to join forces with his archenemy, Hector, and turn his murderous wrath on Zeus and the entire pantheon of divine manipulators; before the swift and terrible mechanical creatures that catered for centuries to the pitiful idle remnants of Earth's human race began massing in the millions, to exterminate rather than serve.
And now all bets are off.

Incredible story. So multifaceted.

Incredible story, how Simmons manages to weave sci fi and the classics together I will never know. This and the first book Ilium are modern classics. A must for any sci fi or indeed classics fans also.

Quite a disapointment

Would you try another book written by Dan Simmons or narrated by Kevin Pariseau?

Yeah, his Hyperion saga was excelent.

Has Olympos put you off other books in this genre?


Would you listen to another book narrated by Kevin Pariseau?


If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Olympos?

Oh man, lots and lots. It was to islamophobic, too rightwing, hostile towards women - and ultimatly dos not answer any of the interesting questions from the first book.

Any additional comments?

Yeah, read the hyperion saga - ifinetly better and a much more satisfying read.
