We all know what it’s like to try to struggle through reading something like The Odyssey. I’m sure almost anyone who really wants to try to get through it has probably considered just listening to the audio book, but I have a double whammy for you: the audio book of The Odyssey being read by Sir Ian McKellen. Now if you don’t know who that is, just think of Gandalf from the Lord of the Rings trilogy – hopefully there are some other nerdy, die-hard fans (of these movies)like myself still left out there. Long story short, imagine listening to thirteen hours of Sir Ian McKellen’s British accent lilting the verses of The Odyssey. It sounds like the best way to get through it , especially if it’s an English assignment forced upon you by the school board. Hope you enjoy!
