It is not intended to replace reading the actual epic, but it does help make it more accessible to all. Good work.
Greek history and mythology is fascinating. How can anyone not enjoy the precursor to Western Civilization?
Would recommend even if you are reading the real Odyssey story -- a good pre-book read.
The Illiad is good too.
