User Review  - Brian - Goodreads

Right. Beowulf sucks. Call me a philistine, call me illiterate, call me what you will, I didn't care for this. Didn't like it in high school and I don't like it any better today. It's dated and more or less inaccessible to these modern ears. Read full review

User Review  - Jo-Ann Murphy - Goodreads

I did not know what to expect when I bought this book. I have heard about Beowulf for years and heard parts receited in old English, but I really knew almost nothing about it.. I found it very easy reading and easy to understand. It was an enjoyable story and a pretty quick read. Read full review

Well written by the standards of any age. It is quite a perplexing read as far as trying to reconcile modern standards of morality to its pages. Apparently humbleness is not quite the way of the Danes and Geats... but a truly great book! Read full review
