Review of 'The Iliad' on 'Goodreads'

4 stars

Typical of my style, I made it about three-fifths of the way through the book (through Book 14). This was my first go at a Homer classic and while I don't have anything to compare it to yet, the Fagles translation had a good flow to it. As for the story itself, I enjoyed the interplay of gods and men, but there's only so much I can take of the hundreds of characters battling it out, scene after scene - which I expected; I gave it the 500-page epic the J. J. Try, but couldn't quite make it.
