Staff Reviews


Neil Gaiman takes his wonderful writing style and turns it towards interpreting the Norse myths. Stories about Odin, Thor, and Loki come alive; once you pick this book up it’s very hard to put down! Anyone who loves learning about different myth systems, students who are studying mythology, and those who might be watching The Vikings on the History Channel would enjoy reading this. And, if you’ve never read anything by Neil Gaiman, this would make an excellent introduction!

— Cathy, Atlanta

Norse Mythology you can call a history of the Norse Gods. It starts in the beginning with a creation story, and ends with an Armageddon type battle with interesting stories in between. I have nominated this book for book of the year.
— Paul, Seattle

Description


Neil Gaiman has long been inspired by anient 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. Through Gaiman’s deft and witty prose emerge these gods with their fiercely competitive natures, their susceptibility to being duped and duping others, and their tendency to let passion ignite their actions, making these long-ago myths breathe pungent life again.
