Product description

Review

No contemporary fiction writer gets more of his power from the mythological tradition than Neil Gaiman. . . . As always, Gaiman's a charming raconteur . . . [and he] recognizes a ripping yarn when he sees one.--Douglas Wolk

A gripping, suspenseful and quite wonderful reworking of these famous tales. Once you fall into the rhythm of its glinting prose, you will happily read on and on, in thrall to Gaiman's skillful storytelling.--Michael Dirda

In reinterpreting the tales so faithfully and with such abundant joy, Gaiman assumes the role of fireside bard, inviting us to sit close on a chilly winter's night and chuckle and wonder along with him.--James Lovegrove

Mr. Gaiman milks [the Norse gods' hijinks] for all their humor and incongruity, very much in the spirit of the originals. . . . [He] has produced . . . a clear, continuous narrative, with big scenes the same as they always were but with emotional pointers added.--Tom Shippey

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

Weaving together ancient Norse mythology with 21st-century sensibility, Gaiman's storytelling once again recreates an entire genre for the modern reader.

Aimed at a younger audience but a very good rendition of the stories not withstanding. A really good introduction if you are trying to spark an interest in a young person. This is an enjoyable rendition of come classic tales.

I like a lot of Neil Gaiman's work (from Sandman to his stories for kids) and was keen on the subject but just couldn't get into this. I guess the point was to present the legends rather than embellish them too much, but it was a bit of a slog.

This book blends together some of the famous stories you know from the Eddas of Norse Mythology, into a more cohesive narrative which makes it ideal for younger readers/parents teaching the stories to children.
It isn't reflective of Gaiman's brilliant writing in American Gods (also featuring Odin), but rather a funny, simple re-iteration of the tales we love, and absolutely worth a read.

The stories I grew up with, and was a big part of building my national pride and identity as a norwegian, now in english. Only minus is that there are plenty more stories that should have been included..

A collection of fun short stories centered around the characters of Norse mythology. The writing is sleek and pacy as I've come to expect from Gaiman.

This is a book to be read and reread countless times. The lessons within the tales are extrodinarilary told. A truly wonderful telling of the Nordic myths. Thanks Neil.
