Growing up, I had to read both the Odyssey and Iliad by Homer in high school. A few years ago I read both again and was entertained again (it has been so many years that I forgot the whole story). I am torn but tend to lean more to liking the Odyssey a bit more.

Which story do you like more by Homer the Odyssey or Iliad?

It's hard to pinpoint which is better since the Odyssey is a sequel to the Iliad. I personally like the Odyssey best because I find Odysseus's long journey home to be interesting and fascinating. Not only that (Spoiler alert!), but he was finally reunited with his family. The Iliad, however, is a great tale to read if you love learning about some of the heroes of Greek Mythology , and you are interested in learning about the Trojan War.

The Iliad is better because of the actual history in it and I love learning about Greek history and culture
