[Book Review] Norse Mythology

Norse Mythology / Neil Gaiman

Gaiman has put together a lovely little introduction to Norse mythology in this collection of cleanly written tales.  The narrative voice is one that you could imagine belonging to a storyteller, sharing stories.  Some of my favorite myths are found in these pages, and several I had not yet read.  Overall the selection reads like a continuing story, rather than simply a collection of individual stories.  An enjoyable read for both those new to and familiar with Norse mythology.

  1. I am dying to read this! Can't wait to get my hands on it. I love mythology in general - and told by Gaiman? Double win!
