Susan Bennett masterfully narrates a stunning retelling of BEOWULF that confronts all manner of monsters....Powerful, upsetting, and unforgettable, Bennet's narration is staggeringly potent. -AudioFile, Earphones Award WinnerSusan Bennett's sweetly polished voice won-derfully evokes the barely suppressed rage of Willa...listening to the book seems more appropriate than reading it. Inspired by an epic which was more likely to be declaimed rather than read, the musical prose of the novel heav-ily references an oral tradition, exhorting us to "Hark!" and "Sing!" -Locus Magazine --This text refers to the audioCD edition.

I liked that the author expressed the notion that we all have demons that we hide and we all love to show a facade of perfection to the public. I didn’t like the sexism. Women were portrayed as manipulative monsters, men as undisciplined, manipulated idiots. I didn’t like the weirdly extreme and unrealistic story, descriptions, circumstances and people.
I recommend the book, but only if you like disturbing things.
