Introducing an instant classic master storyteller Neil Gaiman presents a dazzling version of the great Norse myths. Neil Gaiman has long been inspired by ancient mythology in creating the fantastical realms of his fiction. Now he turns his attention back to the source, presenting a bravura rendition of the great northern tales. In Norse Mythology, Gaiman stays true to the myths in envisioning the major Norse pantheon: Odin, the highest of the high, wise, daring, and cunning; Thor, Odin’s son, incredibly strong yet not the wisest of gods; and Loki son of a giant blood brother to Odin and a trickster and unsurpassable manipulator. Gaiman fashions these primeval stories into a novelistic arc that begins with the genesis of the legendary nine worlds and delves into the exploits of deities, dwarfs, and giants. Once, when Thor’s hammer is stolen, Thor must disguise himself as a woman difficult with his beard and huge appetite to steal it back. More poignant is the tale in which the blood of Kvasir the most sagacious of gods is turned into a mead that infuses drinkers with poetry. The work culminates in Ragnarok, the twilight of the gods and rebirth of a new time and people. Through Gaiman’s deft and witty prose emerge these gods with their fiercely competitive natures, their susceptibility to being duped and to duping others, and their tendency to let passion ignite their actions, making these long-ago myths breathe pungent life again.
Great read! Touches the highlights and great side stories of Norse mythology.
Great book, brought back sweet memories of me has a young lad listening to my mom telling me Norse stories before going to bed.
I feel like the book isn’t as good as it is on audio. This is one of those times reading doesn’t do the book justice gaiman has a fun time reading these tales. From what I’m hearing these are short compared to the real Norse tales. I know nothing of Norse mythology so maybe I had alot more fun than most. But if you don’t have a clue to what norse even means this books is loads of fun.
Great perspective, missing some of it but a quick read
Compelling, gives the gods a new ligjt of character
I read this in Hardcover. It’s a great retelling of the Norse Myths.
