I thought Gaiman would make these stories to flimsy and whimsical to enjoy but he does a great job It THUNDERS along at LIGHTNING pace Covers all the main stories in an engaging way and Gaiman didn t stomp all over them to make them his own I wouldn t say he fully steps aside but that s the charm of the collectionThere are probably stories that could have been included but he cherry picked the important ones so that s fineNaturally the hardback was in enormous print with nice thick pages to make us think it was a substantial book but I got it half price so who cares You ll probably finish it in 3 sittings and really enjoy yourself Feel free to add better puns when you comment on this glib review810David BrookesAuthor of Cycles of Udaipur

Some complain that when compared to Gaiman s other works Norse Mythology falls a bit flat The goal of this project was not to tell new stories but to breath new life into the old stories Gaiman stays true to the source materials and presents the stories of Thor and Odin and Loki and all of the Norse gods in a language that feels fresh and engaging I ve worked my way through the Prose Edda and the Poetic Edda and they are anything but an easy read The prose of a millennia past is something of a hot mess Gaiman has done all of the painful research for us and given us the old stories gift wrapped in tight modern language and a clarity and singular narrative that old Snorri Sturluson was incapable of providing If you want new and exciting stories about Thor and the gang pick up a Marvel Comic book or Rick Riodan s Magus Chase series But if you have a genuine academic interest in the old Norse stories you ll learn from spending a day with Gaiman s Norse mythology than you will learn from spending a year sifting through the Prose and Poetic Edda and it will be a hell of a lot fun

This is genuine storytelling in the oral tradition It is deliberately written as if you were listening to a grandmother telling the tale around the fire Picture her waving her arms and leaning forward to emphasize a point her voice going gutteral and silken interchangeably as she voices a giant or the Trickster LokiA prime example is the story of how poetry was born It is a long story and it does no credit to anyone there is murder in it and trickery lies and foolishness seduction and pursuit ListenIt began not long after the dawn of time in a war between the gods the Aesir fought the Vanir The Aesir were warlike gods of battle and conuest the Vanir were softer brother and sister gods and goddesses who made the soils fertile and the plants grow but none the less powerful for thatIt is a great story with a perfect comedic last lineI had this idea that Norse mythology was dire and bleak A mythology that ends with Ragnork the death of the gods and the end of the world doesn t sound entertaining I couldn t be wrong For one thing Ragnork is the end of one cycle of the world Like Wagner s Ring the world will start over again just as it once did to usher in the time of the godsI have read other books by Neil Gaiman and so far this is my favorite I thought the writing exceptionally evocative Obviously Gaiman had some amazing original material to work with but this was great fun to read It brings fabulous images to mind such as this from Hymir and Thor s Fishing Expedition The grandmother with nine hundred heads killed each ox skinned it and tossed it into her enormous cooking pot The pot boiled and bubbled over a fire which hissed and spat and she stirred it with a spoon as big as an oak tree She sang uietly to herself as she cooked in a voice like a thousand old women all singing at the tops of their voices at onceI usually buy paperbacks but I got Norse Mythology in hardback because the cover of the hardback is beautiful The details of Thor s hammer Mjlnir are raised and the hammer glimmers The story of why Thor s hammer is short handled is included in this collection Most of the depictions of the hammer in Viking jewelry and carvings show the handle even shorter than on the book cover5 stars and a book to re read with great pleasureHappy Reader

    .com: Norse Mythology Audible Audio Edition: Audible Books Originals [Pdf Kindle] I really like Neil Gaiman's work but this was such a disappointment. I loved myths and legends as a child, especially the Norse ones, and hadn't read a collection of Norse stories for many years. So I was really looking forward to one of my favourite set of myths being retold by one of my favourite authors. Gaiman mentions that many of the Norse myths have been lost over time we know of certain characters but

The stories in and of themselves are wonderful, magical, but where is the creative input by this author? I struggled to find it.
