Read full description of the books:
You've got to love a story about a feud that spans centuries and whose original motivating factor was a poop.
This is one of those old Icelandic sagas that everyone would like to have read but never seem to get around to reading. It's a history of the settlement of Iceland and the introduction of Christianity. But there are also ghosts and spears through throats and stuff, so it's a lot of fun, too.
The most obvious hazard in this book is the reader's status as stranger in a strange land. Unless you're a time traveling Viking, all of this is likely to be unfamiliar territory for you. There are more Thorolfs and Thorirs and Thorleifs and Thorbrandssons and Bjorns and Altabjorns and Bjornsons than anyone is likely to want to shake a stick at, making the long list of characters (in a short book, I might add) immensely more confusing than the last tome about Russian aristocracy you read.
It's a funny little book. It can't seem to pick a subject and stick with it, which is why you should make sure to read a good introduction to the work before you embark. As you're reading, it's hard to keep in mind what's really happening and how it relates to what you've already read.
But as with its distant cousins the Iliad and the Arthurian legends, the persistent and thorough reader will be rewarded with a wealth of great scenes, short stories, and characters. If there's a unifying theme in this book, it's that men are fickle creatures, and what better theme could you have for an ancient text than that?
