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.
