My son in law ask me to see if I could get him the complete book of   The Iliad

I ordered him one book but he said it only has part of the story.  Can anyone tell me what I should be looking for?

Michelle,

 

  He said the Iliad.  I am not into the type of books he is so I have not a clue.  All I know is he said it should be a very thick book

Homer wrote both The Illiad and The Odyssey. In my search, I didn't find any posted, but a few WL. Good luck.

The ones I see listed here are about 400 pages, but if you go to Amazon, they have some with over 700 pages. It probably has to do with who translated it, and what they decided to leave out. ( it was originally in Greek)     If it were me I would tell him to get it from Amazon, that way he can pick the version he wants.
