Starts off mostlt readable with some misprints but thw copyy quality deteriorates quickly and becomes unreadable. Not worth it even for free.

They take great pride in themselves to show that the Norse are a primitive, clumsy and stupid culture. The only reason it gets one star at all is because I could not post this with no stars at all.
