What are you guys reading? I am compiling a book list to read over the summer. Give me your suggestions!27 posts and 1 image reply omitted. Click reply to view.
I have just finished Ovid's Metamorphoses, which I enjoyed a lot. If you like Greek and Roman mythology, it's a fabulous resource and sounds very beautiful even through translation.
Next up, I will re-read The Snouters, which is a very precious book to me since my father left it to me before he passed. It's a fictitious report on an order of mammals who all have very strange snouts. I've been increasingly interested in biology and zoology lately and I've been reading up on the subjects, so I want to come at The Snouters with a fresh pair of eyes. When I was a kid, I just liked the pictures.
Just finished the Iliad. Really fucking good, would recommend. Possibly 10/10 with the Robert Fagle translation. Only problem I had was there was a spelling error once.
I would recommend the Lattimore translation since it's better considered in academic circles. But I don't speak Greek.
Really? The book summary looks intriguing
