The Odyssey By Gareth Hinds August 22, 2011

Teen Review By: Matthew J.

Rating: 5/5

What is the book about?

This book is about Odysseus, sacker of Troy, who on his voyage home was cursed by the gods. Mutiny and misfortune plague him, delaying his journey 17 years.

What did you like/dislike about it?

I liked the well done art and the delivery of the story. I think that Homer’s epics should be shown to everyone.

Who would you recommend it to?

I would recommend it to anyone who likes a long graphic novel, around 250 pages, and who is a reasonable age (some gore).
