Potential purchasers should be aware that this edition of what is probably the finest of all the Old Norse sagas is a Modern Icelandic version, not Old Norse. However given the closeness of the two languages and the rock bottom price of this edition, it's still a worthwhile purchase for students of Old Norse who want to get a complete edition of a saga to get their teeth into after the small excerpts of the grammars. As the other reviewer notes, the Penguin Magnusson/Palsson edition is a good companion translation to have alongside this.

The saga has long been a favourite in the Magnusson/Palsson Penguin translation. While I couldn't possibly read the Icelandic text on its own I can use this in a parallel reading and feel closer to the original.

Most interesting, but I'd like it more in the original language of Snorre!
