Superb version of the Beowulf Story,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Beowulf: Dragonslayer (Kindle Edition)
This is a superb version of the Beowulf story - told by the master storyteller Rosemary Sutcliff. Fully deserving of all the positive reviews - bringing classic stories (alongside the Takes of Troy and Wandersings of Odysseus) to a modern audience. Beautifully written - and much more than children's literature. Her stories can be enjoyed by adults equally as much as the children. Indeed if you are an adult reader and pass Rosemary Sutcliff by then you have made huge error and denied yourself a wonderful teller of stories. Famed for the book Eagle of the Ninth, Rosemary Sutcliff produced a large number of very readable, moving and powerfully written exciting stories, fully deserving a reputation as one of Britain's finest writers. If you are studying the classic Beowulf for a language course then give this lighter but thoroughly exciting version a read, if you enjoyed the film with Ray Winstone then give it a go - it is even better!
