Welcome to the Realm of Norse Mythology!
Do you know what Norse mythology is? Are you interested in learning more about it at a beginner's level? Would you like to expand your horizons when it comes to your mythologies?
Norse mythology is a belief system that was created by the Scandinavians, Vikings, which was adopted by many other settlements in their area. It depicted the gods and goddesses as beings who were hard warriors and able to take on dragons and serpents and was overall a very warrior-oriented belief system.
However, the people of that time were not as violent and brutal as most would like to believe. They were vilified by the other religions of the era so that those religions would not lose followers. So, if you're interested in learning about people who were not quite what many people paint them as, and learn more about the creation of the world through the Norse belief system, then listen to this book!
Not only is the Norse world unlike any other world you'll hear about in the history books, it's packed full of interesting tidbits that you might recognize from stories and movies you've seen recently.
You'll find a lot of useful information in this book pertaining to Norse mythology.

The story is interesting enough and the reader has a good voice, but the editing is awful! The story skips mid sentence several times, other portions are overlapped, and there are no stories... This is a very brief overview with no detail.
"solid, and high level"
not a bad beginner place for an overview of Norse mythology. would rate higher, but the audible talked over itself in a few places and was very disorienting.
sensational all i need are ear buds and a cup of coffee. blessed be. allfather
"Nice start to Norse mythology"
This was a quick "read" with some good intoductory info for understanding Norse mythology. I'm looking forward to reading more.
"Good Overview, Bad Performance"
There is a lot of information in this overview of Norse Mythology, but the organization of that information is questionable. It bounces between the nine worlds and minor information too much. The narrator is also hard to listen to for an extended period.
