A nice angle to a well known loved story. A bit depressing but then melancholy never really hurt a literature nut.


Great version

My 20 year old son lost this book in a move and was genuinely upset. He says it is excellent and prefers it's tale to the original version...I plan on reading it after refreshing my memory of Beowulf.


Excellent Book!

Once you read the English poem, Beowulf, and know the basic story line, this book is amazing. Of course, it depends on whether or not you like to analyze books. It's definitely a fun read without analyzation, but chapter five will most certainly fly over your head if you don't understand existentialism and nihilism. It's a great book for AP English Literature students (or anyone looking for a fun parody).
