    Grendel prowled in, hating all men and all joy and hungry for human life. So swift was his attack that no man heard an outcry; but when the dawn came, thirty of Hothgar's best and noblest thanes were missing. Only Beowulf, foremost among warriors, has the strength and courage to battle with Grendel the Night-stalker....

    Any additional comments?

    I listened to this alongside an unabridged audio of the original; my 12-year-old daughter enjoyed it as well. Sutcliff's retelling is vigorous, engaging, and faithful to the original. The reader is very good and really brought the story to life.

    Little Women or, Meg, Jo, Beth and Amy is a novel by American author Louisa May Alcott. Written and published in two parts in 1868 and 1869, the novel tells the story of a year in the life of the March family. We hear of their troubles and joys and come to sympathise with each character: maturing Meg, gifted Jo, gentle Beth and lively Amy, as they extend their kindness to all around them. Louisa May Alcott (1832 - 1888) was an American novelist.

    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    I selected this version by listening to the samples - had I focused on the relative length I would have noticed that this is just Part I! I really enjoyed it until it abruptly ended with Meg's engagement. I wish I could have the second half by the same reader, but as it is I feel cheated!
