Product description

Review

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 Winner

Susan 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
