In this story, there are the gods ( Zeus, Athena, Aeolus, Neptune, Artemis, Hera, Hades, Ares, Dionysus, Hephaestus, Hestia, Apollo, Hermes, Demeter, Aphrodite and Persephone). Zeus is the thunder god but he is the king god.
Odysseus went in a war but he didn't come back because the wind had blown them off the course. Now they are stuck and can't find a way home. And Odysseus's wife Penelope was waiting for him hopefully but Odysseus's mother and father were very sad. The mother killed herself and the father lived somewhere else. They stoped at a place with lotus flowers. It makes them forget everything!
