I really enjoyed the story of Beowulf.  My favorite parts of the book were the parts involving supernatural powers. I thought it was neat that he was able to kill Grendel with his own bare hands, and also swim all the way to the bottom of the swamp to fight Grendel's mother. 
I think that Beowulf would be a great guy to have around in times of need.  He was willing to fight for what was right, no matter what the cost.  He truly was a hero for those of Herot, and he was able to die a hero in fighting the dragon.
