I gave it my full attention but I’m afraid this is not really for me. Some may benefit from this quick spin around the subject but I was hoping for something a bit deeper!

The reader has a bit of a condescending tone to his voice but if you can get past that there is a lot of interesting information in this book

Definitely not one to let your children listen to, but for parents who have been there it will raise a smile

This is not a word for word retelling of the Beowulf manuscript, but is probably easier to listen to for that.
If you want an introduction the classic this is a great place to start, if you are knowledgeable about Beowulf leave it alone you will only criticise it.

The performance is great and hopefully you will be left wanting more.

Worth the effort

Its a bit of an epic, but well worth the effort if you want to find out as much as possible about the Vikings from one place.

Covers their escapades from Scandinavia to England, Ireland, France, Iceland North America, Russia the Byzantium Court and beyond, giving details on the how the happenings in one place influenced the happenings in many others.
