3.0 out of 5 stars Gods Know, 15 Aug 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Myths of the Norsemen - From the Eddas and Sagas: Viking Mythology and Gods of the North (Illustrated Edition) (Kindle Edition)
Despite our conversion to Christianity, our relationship with our ancestors Gods and myths remain strong, everything from naming the days of the week after the Gods, including a Goddess who we named our favourite day after (Friday ), to the Marvel comics relating their version of Asgard, Thor and the battles therewith. Here you get to meet all the key players in our ancestors history, Woden,Thor, Loki, Freya, the Ice Giants and the Valkyrie, along with the stories that go with them. Anyone familiar with the Thor or Avenger movies will recognise some of the names, but not sure will recognise their character. Interspersed with the stories are translation of the earlier tales, this is almost a dictionary to the lives, deaths, struggles and in some cases humour (Loki dressed in drag) Maybe not the best book on the subject, but a worthy one that gives us a glimpse of what shaped our elders lives.

2.0 out of 5 stars where are the illustrations?, 10 July 2014

This review is from: Myths of the Norsemen - From the Eddas and Sagas: Viking Mythology and Gods of the North (Illustrated Edition) (Kindle Edition)
I have the original printed book and thought it would be useful to have it on kindle. The printed book is full of wonderful illustrations, but I could find none in the kindle book. Yet the blurb claims this is the illustrated edition. So where are they?
