It's been a coule years since reading it so I'm a little rusty on certain facts. Odysseus seemed to be very resourceful, and came up with some clever idea on how to escape certain difficulties (I paticularly like him adopting the name "Nohbody". Although if not for Athena he would have died early on.

His penchant for bragging was also interesting.

What about you? (and what version did you read? I read the translation by Seamus Heaney)

"Dulce bellum inexpertis."

As Odin says in the Hovamal:
"Praise no day 'til evening; no wife 'til on her pyre; no sword 'til tested;
no maid 'til bedded; no ice 'til crossed;
no ale 'til drunk."
