This book review will be short and sweet. Not because I didn't like the story or because it's been done before. It's because when it comes to mythology and the stories of Odysseus and his son Telemachus, I can't be angry or cruel. I've always been a lover of Greek tellings, but this one is more than adventure. It was all about how a young boy became a man, without his father there to show him.
Telemachus wanted to defend his mother, Penelope from those seeking to marry her, he he but also wanted to know if his father was still alive, after the whole Troy incident. He wasn't a brute just curious. He was a boy needing his father. He needed to believe his father was still alive and so he headed out to find him. The story was more of an emotional trial than an actual adventure. It's great if you want to go to your next college course on mythology, but it was no Jason and the Argonauts or The Battle of Thermopylae. It's just character building, honestly. Not bad but not good for me, the reader.
I gave the book a decent rating, but not one I'd say, "Oh man- you have to read this!"
