I'm currently behind on reviews, so don't be surprised if the recent reviews are a bit sparse.


Cover of Grendel.

This book decidedly tried to do things and talk about philosophy, but I don’t like books that use everything just as a pretext to defend or show off philosophical principles. Didn’t help that Grendel himself was just ick. I suppose this book is great for intellectual people with a brain and so on, but I found it unpleasant and yikes for the most part.

The dragon was rad, though.

Plot summary

Beware: full spoilers! Also probably incomplete and possibly incomprehensible.

Grendel watches kingdoms rise and fall and talks to an outside-of-time dragon and is also utterly insane. Gets killed, duh.
