This book is awesome.......for most of its parts. It's not that I don't like the book, it's just that the author(s) used one phrase over and over again. So, in Odysseues's mind, he lists things he notices that would help him. And then, grabs the last thing he notices and uses it. I m not saying that's a bad thing, it's just that they used it over and over again. They could have used a different choice of words and said the same thing! That is all I want to say. All in all, the book was really awesome!!!!!!!:)
