Homer’s Iliad & Odyssey

If you think Game of Thrones has a big cast, just imagine an epic, ongoing battle where the Gods actually literally get involved in the fighting. That’s the Iliad in a nutshell, with its amazing heroes and touching love story. Epicness really oozes out of every page. Then there’s the Odyssey, a sequel of sorts about Odysseus trying to make his way home after the bloody battle over Helen of Troy. Pretty intense stuff, and there’s definitely enough there for many seasons of pure awesomeness.
