Sir Gawain and the Green Knight
The concept itself is fun; I really liked the "beheading game" aspect of the plot. The translation was superb--it was in modern English, yet it retained much of the alliteration and rhyming scheme of the original language.
Still, overall it wasn't as good as I had expected it to be. "Sir Gawain and the Green Knight" is worth the read if it's your forte, but otherwise, skip it.
