kreleia, I love the Odyssey and can't stand Huck Finn. Of course there is the fact that I'm a fan of mythology in general. Oh, did I recommend the Conqueror's Saga by Timothy Zahn? Awesome trilogy! Zahn rocks! Oh, but avoid Crime and Punishment, I swear those Russian authors sit down at the beginning of winter and start writing til the end, and they have LOONNGG winters.
