2 Free Kindle Books by Homer

As you grow older, you no longer look at the classics as something you "have" to read. They become enjoyable and you find yourself seeking out new books to consume. The following free kindle books are just two of the most classic books of all time.

The Iliad by Homer

Homer's Iliad begins nine years after the Greek armies first arrived at Troy. A plague has overcome the Greek armies because Agamemnon has refused to return the daughter of a Priest of Apollo. Achilles, the epic's central character, exposes this fact and confronts the king. Agamemnon agrees to release this girl, if, and only if, Achilles gives him his 'war-prize', Briseis in return. (from Book Rags).




The Odyssey by Homer

After ten years, the Trojan War is over and the Achaeans head for home-with varying results. Some, like Nestor, come home quickly to find things pretty much as they left them. Others, like Agamemnon, arrive home to find things considerably changed. Still others, like Menelaus, wander for a time but eventually return home safely and little the worse for wear.(from Book Rags).
