The Iliad by Homer June 16, 2009

Posted by Aubri in Classics, Slow Plot, week 1.

From Summerhippee

I had to read this book for my world history class and would have never read it other wise. It is a story about the last year of the Trojan War which is fought between the Achaeans and the Trojans, where the Achaeans try to take over the city of Troy. It is really gory and the author gives lots of details about who dies and how they died. I didn’t really like this book because of all the gore and violence but I did like it because you got to here a lot about how the Greek gods played apart in the war. It also had quite a few twists and turns that I was not expecting and also had some exciting suspense. But I would not recommend this book for people who do not like gore and a slow plot.
