To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
This is the perfect way to read The Odyssey. It has a great table of contents with analysis at the end of each chapter. The chapters are condensed so you get the salient points of the story. Highly recommend.
Cliff Notes are great. Never been disappointed. Read the real book though, especially if you are a college slacker. 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.
The important details of every Book are explained and analyzed, not very much in-depth but deeply enough to give a basic understanding of what's going on, why, and how it might be interpreted. I had read the Odyssey twice in the past (and remembered almost nothing), so this was a great way to refresh my memory without having to read the epic for the third time for a course.
It is not intended to replace reading the actual epic, but it does help make it more accessible to all. Good work.
