Another thing I find embarrassing to admit is that I don't and never have liked The Odyssey. The back of this book calls it "THE GREATEST TALE OF ALL TIME." Don't get me wrong. I have a healthy respect for it. I recognize how important it is and how very old it is. To be able to read something that was probably written in the 8th Century is awe-inspiring. I just feel like having read it once is enough for me. Now that I am out of school, I feel safe putting it in the donation box.
