Odysseus

by Geraldine McCaughrean

This title is now available on MP3-CD from Brilliance Audio for only $14.99. (Please go to Brilliance or Amazon.com to order - we no longer sell directly.)

The Trojan War is over, and Odysseus longs to return to wife and son on his island kingdom of Ithaca. But between hero and home stands an array of dangers unlike any ever faced by mortal man.

On his epic voyage—an adventure so grand and glorious it has become the very symbol for all great journeys—Odysseus must face the monstrous cyclops, escape the enchanting nymph Circe, defy the terrors of Scylla and Charybdis, and descend to the land of the dead. Even home is not safe, for there Odysseus must triumph in one last battle to be reunited with his loving wife.

For nearly three thousand years the story of Odysseus’s journey has enthralled the world. Now Full Cast Audio brings you Geraldine McCaughrean’s brilliant retelling, in a dazzling recording that will captivate young and old alike.

Reviews:
"This retelling of Homer's classic tale has freshness, vitality, and creative use of language. The Full Cast Audio performance, with original music, brings new life to the many mishaps of Odysseus and his crew on their 20-year journey home from Troy....A great choice for classroom listening."
    — KLIATT Final Issue   Starred Review
 
"The legendary voyage of Odysseus will electrify listeners . . . The full cast ensures that each person, god, and specter is distinct. Indeed, with 20 years of adventure to narrate, the cast creates admirable order in the "world-encircled sea." Together McCaughrean and Full Cast Audio evoke the allure of Greek mythology."
    — AudioFile 2008
 
"McCaughrean’s language is lyrical and the action and suspense will fascinate young listeners. Narrator Cynthia Bishop establishes an exciting pace, and the full-cast voicing makes the many characters easily recognizable to listeners. A solid choice for school and public libraries."
    — School Library Journal
