I'm glad to know I'm not the only one who feels a bit intimidated by The Iliad. I've read parts of it before, but have not taken the time to read it all the way through. I could see reading it as part of an open ongoing group, giving everyone as much time as they need to read it; I just do not know if it would work as a 21 day book club selection. Although, it might be a perfect time to read it for the Literary Club (can not mange a link using my phone), seeing as there is extra time this month, with the dates being moved.
