Staff Reviews


Sandman and American Gods author Neil Gaimen has been working on this project for years - and he has outdone himself with a great introduction to the Norse mythology. A fast paced and easy to read fun trip from Asgard to Valhalla. Especially great if your Norse knowledge is lacking. A fun and entertaining read.

— Matt C

Description


"

Remarkable.... Gaiman has provided an enchanting contemporary interpretation of the Viking ethos.--Lisa L. Hannett, Atlantic


Neil Gaiman, long inspired by ancient mythology in creating the fantastical realms of his fiction, presents a bravura rendition of the Norse gods and their world from their origin though their upheaval in Ragnarok.


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. Through Gaiman's deft and witty prose, these gods emerge 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.
