The magnificence of this timeless tale is highlighted by the eloquent reading of George Guidall. His guttural anger; sprightly joys; loud, authoritative commands; quiet, tender tones; and pithy asides hold the listener's attention from the very first book. He has the strength and stamina of Achilles and Agamemnon themselves, and his performance demonstrates a deep understanding of the epic, making this audiobook a fine teaching tool. There's no doubt that the best place for this tape is the high school or college classroom. Students will enjoy and understand the massive work so much better when their own reading is augmented by Guidall's masterful interpretation. D.D.G.
