The Yawnyssey

The Odyssey - Homer, Robert Fagles, Bernard Knox

The Odyssey. That epic tale. That slightly boring, must-have-been-the-translation, am-I-too-young-to-appreciate-this, epic tale.

Don't get me wrong, I understand that this is a classic. And it has gotten very good reviews. Buuuut it started pretty slow. And it dragged on. Lots of telling and retelling of the same events. And lots of plundering and then crying when they got plundered. Got a bit tiring after a while.

Still better than Ulysses though! (Not that that's hard)
