User Review  - Caroline - Goodreads

I never know how to rate things like this- I read it for class and I didn't hate it but its just different and hard for me to rate. I'll give it three because it was easy to read, I finished it rather quickly and it was enjoyable. Read full review

Review: Beowulf

User Review  - Toni FGMAMTC - Goodreads

I totally enjoyed this even though I hardly got anything out of it. I'm not great at poetry because it has to be read slowly and digested and reread etc. I am glad that I did read it, and I did like it. Read full review
