    Mar 30,  · You’re about to read the world’s first novel! The Odyssey has 24 books, so we analyzed and discussed the arc of the entire epic, reading several of the key books. The first four books recount the story of Odysseus’s son, Telemachus, and how he must try to protect his mother and be the man of the house until, if and when, his father returns. Well, until Poseidon returns from hanging out at the end of the world and is not pleased to see Odysseus roaming the open seas again. He sends a storm Odysseus' raft and almost drowns him.
