My son had to read this in his high school British Literature class so I thought I'd give it a go and it is WAY better than Beowulf, which I had to read! Grendel is a sympathetic monster whose observations on humans are cagily insightful, and the Zodiac theme makes the book more enjoyable if you know to look for it. Recommended.
An unusual adaptation of Beowulf ledgend as written from the Monster's point of view. Man's natural instinct to kill what he doesn't understand is oft-times the impetus to the monsterous nature of the beast. Grendel deserves his say and gets it in this slim volume as told from the other side of the nightmare.
