I read this book in 6th grade for English. Or rather, my class listened to the audio version. Ok, I'll be honest. I didn't particularly like this book. At some scenes it is bloody and too descriptive. But this is based on The Odyssey, so it's not like it's this author's fault. Anyway, I would not read this again. I didn't particularly enjoy it. However, it is not a bad book, which is why I give it three stars and not two.
