    " I have had the pleasure of reading Beowulf half a dozen times since high school. It is in my estimation the most definitive and also the most entertaining. "

    " For a society that was so into killing and fighting, the Anglo-Saxons sure didn't like to TALK about killing and fighting. It's like 90% descriptions of treasure and family lineage. But Heaney's translation is pretty interesting. "

    " I read this book in high school a long time ago and out of everything I read back then this is the one I most remember. I really enjoyed it, it sparked my interest in the Gaelic myths and from there really my interest in mythology all together. The back story is even cooler, the fact that it was written by an anonymous poet back around the 9th century as a heroic epic ode to Beowulf from Scandinavia is fascinating. All ancient/old myths and legends are extremely intriguing to me and I am sure it was even more impressive in the original version before it got translated and revised and yet revised again and again it was still an incredible read. "

    " I wasn't sure what to expect before I read it, but I actually really liked it. If I hadn't gotten distracted I think I could've finished it a lot sooner, but instead I had to read most of it the night before class. "
