    Summary. Book 5 opens on Mount Olympus at another council of the gods. Athena once again asks Zeus to assist Odysseus, and Zeus decides to send Hermes to help him break free of his captivity by the "lustrous" r, Zeus warns that Odysseus's journey home will not be easy. Athena is also reminded that she must continue aiding Telemachus in his journey home, particularly when it comes.   The Odyssey isn't just an important book, it's also a very exciting book and a beautiful work of literature. As the popular Percy Jackson series for younger readers attests, kids are fascinated by Greek tales of gods, monsters, and heroes, and The Odyssey is the original Olympian tale. The epic hero, Odysseus, overcomes supernatural creatures 5/5.

    In Europe I am drawn to the East, especially the Balkans and Greece. I would rather go to Montenegro than the Riviera, and I would rather spend the weekend in Transylvania than Biarritz. I love ending any day at the beach. I find reading books on airplanes a great pleasure, and somewhere in my library is a book for every flight I have taken. Now Neptune had gone off to the Ethiopians, who are at the world's end, and lie in two halves, the one looking West and the other East. He had gone there to accept a hecatomb of sheep and oxen, and was enjoying himself at his festival; but the other gods met in the house of Olympian Jove, and the sire of gods and men spoke first.
