Review of "The Saga of Hrafnkel"

The full text and a plot summary can be found here.  I think this saga is important to people who study Icelandic Sagas.  Besides the general portrait of an atheist, I didn't find much in the story that I liked.  Again there was too little poetry and slaughter.  The legal portions of the saga were somewhat interesting, but again, I think much of this would be of interest mainly to historians of the period and the sagas.
