Newly updated by D. C. H. Rieu, son of E. V. Rieu One of the foremost achievements in Western literature, Homer's Iliad tells the story of the darkest episode of the Trojan War. At its center is Achilles, the greatest warrior-champion of the Greeks, and his conflict with his leader Agamemnon. Interwoven in the tragic sequence of events are powerfully moving descriptions of the ebb and flow of battle, the besieged city of Ilium, the feud between the gods, and the fate of mortals. @RageAgainstTheAchaean Pissed. I am so, so very pissed. First I have to go to this beach. Then I have to kill all these dudes. And NOW – now! This prick stole my biscuit. Who does that? Am I right? Can’t resolve this problem on my own – calling Mom! From Twitterature: The World's Greatest Books in Twenty Tweets or Less

A really worthy four stars story.I'm not really sure how I wound up reading this book and loving it. Epic battle story with gory details of spears going through the gaps between your armour or straight through it. Sons going down in battle leaving fathers grieving back home. How a large portion of t...
