The Trojan War is over, and Odysseus longs to return to wife and son on his island kingdom of Ithaca. But between hero and home stands an array of dangers unlike any ever faced by mortal man.

On his epic voyage - an adventure so grand and glorious it has become the very symbol for all great journeys - Odysseus must face the monstrous cyclops, escape the enchanting nymph Circe, defy the terrors of Scylla and Charybdis, and descend to the land of the dead. Even home is not safe, for there Odysseus must triumph in one last battle to be reunited with his loving wife.

For nearly 3,000 years, the story of Odysseus' journey has enthralled the world. Now Full Cast Audio brings you Geraldine McCaughrean's brilliant retelling, in a dazzling recording that will captivate young and old alike. Download and start listening now!

    " I think Perseus was my favorite of the four, just because it has a more positive ending. Yet that is just the way the myth goes. The story was retold by an excellent author. I recommend her writings to all. "

    " I mostly read this to refamiliarize myself with the actual Hercules legends, after a lifetime of twisting via Walt Disney and Kevin Sorbo. It's a fun little book, and I'd recommend it to any young readers who might ask. "

    " Really nice to read because it has a sense of adventure but also has a touch of laughter in it. "

    " I read this to the kids for some of our history lessons. It is easy to understand and fun to read. They enjoyed hearing about Odysseus and the giant cyclops and the other tales. They really enjoyed the book. I hope it will make The Odyssey not so scary for them to read and understand some day "
