You guys have said you don't study all the books, but this is an AS quiz and at AS you study the whole epic...

you cant be serious, your knowledge is poor , these things dont happen in book 9, odysseus is retelling the story of how things happened.

It would be a great quiz if the questions weren't just, "In which book does 'X' happen?". I wish the creator would edit this to have questions like, "Who is Aeolus?" or "How does Odysseus defeat Circe in Book 10?".
