First book of 4 of the retelling of Odysseus' tale from the fall of Troy to his return home. Michel Honaker's style makes the story accessible in a modern language and keeps the essence of the tale. I'm going to keep on reading. Book 1 focuses on Odysseus' brilliant Trojan Horse, the fall of Troy, Cassandra's bad omen, how young men want to replace Odysseus as King of Ithaca and in Penelope's bed and Telemaque going on his quest to find his father. Good stuff.
