An Iliad

I just finished reading Alessandro Barrico's An Iliad, a reinterpretation of Homer's Iliad.
The opinions on Amazon seem to be either love or hate, with very little in between. I have to say that I fall on the love side, and have no qualms about recommending it. It's a short read and you can probably push through it in a day or two without trying very hard. It's one of my favorite stories, and after seeing the travesty that was Troy (which is high on my shittiest movies of all time list) it's nice to find something both modern and not a piece of crap.
