    " I love the story but hate the translation. I wish I had read the Fagles version. "

    " I've putting this off for way too long but I finally finished it. My book challenge has really motivated me to make time to just sit in a comfortable space and just dive into books. Anyways. I have a cartoon version of the Iliad, but fortunately I've forgotten the events that happened and in which order so I guess reading the poem made me look deeper into what isn't shown in the movie and the more significant events, like the huge conflict between Agamemnon and Achilles. Not only is there betrayal, there's also a lot of violence and romance. I noticed that there was some obvious foreshadowing. I can't believe the main character dies! "
