The first and most terrifying monster in English literature, from the great early epic Beowulf, tells his own side of the story in this frequently banned book. This  classic and much lauded retelling of Beowulf follows the monster Grendel as he learns about humans and fights the war at the center of the Anglo Saxon classic epic. This is the book William Gass called "one of the finest of our contemporary fictions."


  • Great book

    By Babyml86
    This is a great book I'm glad that my literature professor assigned this material to us to read for class. If it wasn't for the Professor I would've missed out on several great books. Worth every dollar and I highly do recommend it.
  • Awful

    By KenzieGrumbles
    Forced to read for school and hated it
  • Amazing

    By Sophiepurle
    The fight between wanting Grendal to live and die at the same time is like an experience like no other. Definitely will become one if the rereading books!
  • Brilliant!

    By 3spn4life
    I loved this book from beginning to end. It's one of the very few books that I couldn't let go of while I was reading it, so I finished it all in a few hours. It is short, but it is packed to the gills with philosophies and ideas that will leave you questioning life for days. I would highly recommend this book to anyone who likes to ask questions.
  • Please read me I'll save your life

    If your reading this book for school then its ok you'll make it through but if your reading this recreationally watch out because here comes another scarlet letter.
  • Dont buy it

  • Great, but not for $10...

    By Kateigh
    I love the book, I really do. It's fantastic. But it's also extremely short. Paying 10 dollars for a short book that's only electronic doesn't sit well with me. If I'm paying that, it should include what it costs for the paper, binding, printing, etc. and I should get a physical copy.
  • Grendel

    By Del Kay
    Fantastic book. Everybody should read it at least once. I liked Grendel a lot because you get a view into his personality, thoughts, and emotions and get to see a side of him you didn't see in Beowulf. Also his ears are cute in this one :)
  • A Good Read

    By Eric O'Shea
    Short but sweet, good plot. Liked it, even though I'm not very in to this genre of literature.
