What else can he do? For he is not like the men who busy themselves with God, love and beauty. He sees the infuriating human rage for order and recognises the meaninglessness of his own existence. GRENDEL is John Gardner's masterpiece; it vividly reinvents the world of Beowulf. In Grendel himself, a creature of grotesque comedy, pain and disillusioned intelligence, Gardner has created the most unforgettable monster fantasy.Hide synopsis

My 20 year old son lost this book in a move and was genuinely upset. He says it is excellent and prefers it's tale to the original version...I plan on reading it after refreshing my memory of Beowulf.
Once you read the English poem, Beowulf, and know the basic story line, this book is amazing. Of course, it depends on whether or not you like to analyze books. It's definitely a fun read without analyzation, but chapter five will most certainly fly over your head if you don't understand existentialism ...
