Listeners who are looking for a story that sets a classic tale in the present day and is told in an engaging way should look no further. Swann updates THE ILIAD to modern times, setting it in Texas. The result, thanks to Karissa Vacker's wonderful narration, is a supremely entertaining story about a family dealing with betrayal and obligation. Texas is an inspired setting for this story, and Vacker does not succumb to the temptation to lay on a thick Texas drawl. Instead, she sets just the right tone throughout. The audiobook is thoroughly engaging. J.P.S. © AudioFile 2021, Portland, Maine [Published: JULY 2021]
