(3.9 stars; 437 reviews)

"The Iliad is an epic poem in dactylic hexameters, traditionally attributed to Homer. Set in the Trojan War, the ten-year siege of Ilium, by a coalition of Greek States, it tells of the battles and events during the weeks of a quarrel between King Agamemnon and the warrior Achilles. Although the story covers only a few weeks in the final year of the war, the Iliad mentions or alludes to many of the Greek legends about the siege" (Summary from Wikipedia) (15 hr 40 min)

good stuff

(3.5 stars)

grateful for the audiobook. haters on the reader know nothing. dont complain. act. where is ur reading?

A Great Recording

(5 stars)

The recording quality is very good. The translation uses Roman names, but that's an easy obstacle to overcome. Easy and enjoyable to listen to.

I am grateful to all volunteers. I am hateful of all critics.

(5 stars)

I wish I could buy these ignorant critics for what they are worth and sell them for what they think they are worth. Sesumarongi (backwards ingnoramuses)

Aardvark is right! Bellona is a fully Roman goddess and has no Greek equivalent. The Iliad is a Greek story and I can't take the Roman gods/goddesses. I am a good reader too, but, really?


(5 stars)

Great book! I love the narrator, he was very amusing with the voice of Helen. I love the old literature. Thanks librivox for all the great books keep it up!

(3 stars)

I am in no way a "hater" but this reader is so obnoxious that he manages to completely obliterate this masterpiece. Why is it necessary to savagely shout into the microphone???

(0.5 stars)

Narrator had no excitement or anything. Didn't get past the second part. Monotone is not a good quality for a Narrator.

One Great Book

(5 stars)

Why were some of you banging on the read? I thought he did a good job.
