As I wrote, I need to read it for one of the courses at the University. We're now studying Old English, after that we will analyze Middle English and so on ;)
 It's not a bore for me to read it, actually it's quite interesting to find the common roots of all Proto-Germanic languages

How similar is Old English compared to modern English? Can it be understood easily?

not very similar, it has letters that are not present in Modern English, but if you know the morphological structure of the words you can at least try to guess the word ;) Old English has cases, genitive constructions and is much closer to the old -germanic languages, to Old Frisian

Anne Rice - Interview with the vampire
[snapback]1914[/snapback]

Cool :) I just finised the 10th and last part of the Vampire Chronicles, "Blood Canticle". Too bad, I think it was the worst of the series, I liked part 6: "Armand" the best.
I'm now reading the "Hitchhikers guide to the galaxy", Douglas Adams  :P
