This review is from: Odyssey of Homer (Hardcover)
This is a solid, straightforward prose translation. I think it lacks poetry, both literally and figuratively. However, it's very readable and makes a fine baseline for comparing other translations.
For a prose translation that captures a bit more flavor, try E.V. Rieu. For a verse translation, I like Fagles or Fitzgerald.
