Excellent narration!

Timeless magical tale, I never tire of Beowulf. The outstanding narration of Jack Chekijian served as an ideal carriage to the past.

Among the many audio books I listen to, this is a favorite. Satisfying in it's age and simplicity- don't miss this treasure.

An easy listen of a complex classic

A great vocal performance in a style befitting of a Norse saga, yet translated for the modern English-speaker.
