I appreciated some aspects of this book, but to say that I'm relieved to be done with it? Understatement of the year.
Whenever I need some poetic inspiration, I read a page or two of Grendel. There are so many bits of beautiful prose in this book, my breath seems constantly caught as I read it. One of my favorites, for sure.
One of my favorite books, by one of my favorites authors, about one of my favorite tales. Absolute favorite.
