This is a delightful book! Great prose and a very original idea. One of my favorite books is Beowulf. This is a twist on that story. John Gardner asks us what if Beowulf was told from the monster’s point of view. I don’t want to say much more and ruin this read for you. I really enjoyed this fantastic story and would highly recommend for anyone who is a fan of the original Beowulf. I was delighted to find this book. It’s a short read and you won’t be disappointed. Give it a shot.
The Beowulf story retold from the monster's point of view reveals the darker side of human nature and values
