Worth the trouble,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Beowulf (Kindle Edition)
It's alliterative verse in a 19th century translation, but stick with it if you're at all interested as it's a great story full of historical colour. He slew not one dragon but three, and ruled for fifty years in addition. Yes, it's not easy going at times, but it's worth the effort.

I suspect an 8 year old would not be able to make much sense of it. It is not a modern translation.
