"In Norse Mythology, Gaiman fashions primeval stories into a novelistic arc that begins with the genesis of the legendary nine worlds; delves into the exploits of the deities, dwarves, and giants; and culminates in Ragnarok, the twilight of the gods and the rebirth of a new time and people. Gaiman stays true to the myths while vividly reincarnating Odin, the highest of the high, wise, daring, and cunning; Thor, Odin's son, incredibly strong yet not the wisest of gods; and Loki, the son of a giant, a trickster and unsurpassable manipulator."--Container.

Listen to this book - Neil Gaiman is an excellent narrator. I'm a long-time fan of the Norse myths, so was a little hesitant going into this book. I wondered how a fiction author would treat these real-life myths and whether there would be anything new to interest me. I should have known that Neil Gaiman would come through. He treated the myths respectfully and accurately, and managed to breath new life into the stories. Highly recommended.

I was only passingly familiar with Norse mythology. This set of very charming stories as retold by the author paint the Norse gods multi-dimensionally with recognizable character strengths and weaknesses. One can imagine the Norse in their long winters with little else for entertainment telling and embellishing on these and more stories.
