About the Saga Project

I like audiobooks. They’re handy while travelling and when I just want to curl up with my eyes closed and listen to a story.

I also like the Icelandic sagas. I’ve studied their protagonists for both my Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees in Comparative Literature, and I have a certain fondness for them.

My work involves narration, among many other things, and just as you need to warm up for singing, you need to warm up your voice for narration. As a result of this, it seemed like a good idea to start reading audio recordings of the sagas, during my warm up sessions. My voice won’t be perfect (if it were, it would be time to start working!) but hopefully some use and enjoyment can be found in them regardless.

This is my own pet project, so feel free to download them for your own personal use. There’s no price, though donations are greatly appreciated if you enjoy the recordings. The sagas read are chosen by personal whim, so feel free to send requests.

I hope you enjoy the Saga Project audio books.

    Thank you! A name and the sound of a name holds a lot of meaning – it’s great to be able to hear an Icelandic voice speak the sagas.
