I may pick this up again, because I did finally get to Egil himself. This was the first Icelandic saga I attempted, and I wasn't prepared for the weight of the genealogy stuff. Compared to Laxdoela, which I started while still in the middle of this one, Egil's Saga is less compelling to me, so I'm pressing forward on L instead.
