    don't watch "Troy" . . .

    i think filmmakers should stop spoiling the great works of great men. don't satisfy yourself by watching merely the film 'Troy' that is based on this book. it doesn't contain even 5 % of the book! read the book of Homer . . .and watch the film. then you will learn the difference; and greatness of the book!!

    About the book

    I don't have talk about Homer or Iliad as you all pretty much know everything. I will just talk about the quality of the book. Despite the fact that it is an inexpensive edition, the paper quality is pretty good and there is an extensive introduction about the content in general. I think the book will be pretty good. The cover is a bit thin and I would recommend you to bind it or cover it using lamination sheet to avoid any damages. The packing was a bit flimsy. When I received the book, it w...

    First tragedy book ever

    This is the first work of western literature and wow! Homer was a genius, he placed the foundation of theater decades before it actually came into being. 'The Iliad' by Penguin is a revised translation of this 15,000 lines long epic poem. It is so named because it tells the story of Greeks' siege of city of "Ilium", the Troy.
    You will learn so much about Greek Gods and the epic itself through this book. So before you watch the Brad Pitt starrer "Troy" it is advisable to read it.
    "Troy" was ...

    A Great Epic

    The Iliad is one of the greatest Greek epics still around. It's presented much differently in general folklore though. The book has glorious details about which nipple did whose bronze arrow pass through and who is whose son/bastard child. It's not exactly fun to read this unless you are a Greek mythology geek.
    This paperback by Projapati Books has a lot of typos which are excusable since the book comes at such a great price in such a good package. Flipkart's service with this product was gr...

    Quality Book and Print

    Book is classic, a great one for the collection.
    concerning the paperback cover, it's of good quality and the packing was good.
    Quality print, though the font looks a little small than other books, but good for reading.

    Worth the money.

    Satisfying

    It looks better and is better than your would expect at the price it sold at (At least for me, it was just 80 bucks and the delivery charge). The paper quality is good and the font are fine and you won't have a problem with it. If you are on a budget, this is your stuff.

    Must buy!

    Product quality is excellent. I don't want to talk on the content of the book as I have not read it yet. I think it must be an amazing journey into that classic world when I shall be reading it. Thank you Flipkart for delivering it in time.
