The Iliad and The Odyssey by Homer (Translated by Samuel Butler)

Contained in this single volume, The Iliad and The Odyssey are considered the most important works in ancient Greek literature, commonly dated to 8th century BC. Homer's epic poems chronicle the famous battles of the Trojan War and the hero Odysseus's fantastic ten-year journey to return home.

The BeamItDown Book Collections use a very different approach to reading that is absolutely ideal for the screen of the iPhone and iPod Touch. Other reader applications display the text of the book you are reading in individual pages. The number of words that can be displayed on the screen at one time is determined by the size of the font used. This forces you to choose between reading with a very small font size or using a large font and changing pages every few seconds. The problem is that reading with a very small font induces eye strain, while frequent paging disrupts concentration.

The BeamItDown iFlow Reader solves this problem by using an entirely new approach to reading. Instead of paging, the BeamItDown iFlow Reader scrolls text much like a teleprompter. Large, easy to read text scrolls by smoothly as you read. The precise scrolling speed is controlled by subtly tilting the device, which quickly becomes very intuitive and natural. You can personalize your reading experience by selecting the paper color, text color, text size, and the font that you prefer to create a truly enjoyable reading experience.

The previous reviews are correct the wording is a tad watered down but other than that quite a wonderful piece of literature. I find it especially sad that the absolute best pieces of good classic literature are the free "unwanted" books. just shows you where we're headed.

The features for the app are fine but the translation is wrong. The names are wrong. It doesn't sound right without the Greek names and correct translation. I belive that it would be much better if it could be changed.

5/5 stars
