The Iliad (Unabridged)
Open iTunes to Buy
One of the most extraordinary achievements in world literary history. An immensely influential and compelling epic poem of the Trojan War, with characters whose names have become legendary. Too good to be relegated to the dustbin of high-school required reading, the first of Homer's epic poems tells of the counsel of Nestor, Achilles' slaying of Hector, and the defeat of the Trojans by the Greeks. (Translated by Samuel Butler.)

John is a great narrator. He pauses for emphasis, changes pitch to match punctuation, changes voices for character, and does very well with the Greek names.
If you're looking for a smooth, comfortable voice to enjoy by a fireplace, this is it.
