That family is so bizzare! My sister called yesterday and said her (nerdy) high-school aged daughter wants to read the Odyssey and did I know anything about it. I told her it is a poem written in the 8th century BC but is a classic she will hear referred to all her life. I told her that if she read it, I would, too and downloaded it for free onto my Kindle. Haven't heard yet if they're getting it for her. I may just send her a copy via Amazon. Has anyone read this? Thoughts?
