Eaters of the Dead by Michael Crichton
Crichton did an excellent job with his twist on Beowulf. I liked the way he showed the differences in cultures, along with superstitions and the reasons behind some of them. Plus there was plenty of action. All resulting in a mutual respect/brotherhood (even of each others differences). A very entertaining read. The movie wasn’t bad either (the 13th warrior)
Got 5 stars and is on my favorites shelf.
