Beowulf by Unknown
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Nothing happens quickly in Beowulf.

This is a good story, but it’s wordy and written in Old English. The translations are all a little different, and some are more difficult than others.

The general consensus that I hear from instructors and students is “I read it, and now I don’t ever have to do it again.” I totally agree. It was worth reading, just to know the story, but it was tedious.
