This is the first time I’ve actually gone

This is the first time I’ve actually gone into Norse myths (I’ve generally enjoyed Greek mythology more). I would totally recommend this - an easy read, made up of different stories so it’s relatively easy to put down and continue, not that you’d want to once you start this.

Norse Mythology

The tales of the ancients, in the voice of a phenomenal storyteller. Great read if you like Norse Mythology, and more-so if you're a fan of Darby. These are heavy tales to tell, and Gaiman does a masterful job of detailing and defining Who, Where, and Why these myths are vital to the entire fabric of storytelling.

This book was very interesting

This book was very interesting and really got imaginative with providing details of how certain Norse Myths came to be. I really enjoyed the storytelling and the humorous cause and effects of the adventures of the gods.

It's also a quick listen.

It's also a quick read. I got through it in a single day, though the chapters are well suited to picking up and putting down since the stories are fairly self-contained.

It's also a quick read. I got through it in a single day, though the chapters are well suited to picking up and putting down since the stories are fairly self-contained.

Great telling of Norse Myths

I've always liked Norse mythology, but this telling is the most touching I've read so far. Darby Kerr imbues the Gods with a modern touch that makes their personalities and wit as accessible to a reader as if you were a child at a campfire, listening to ghost stories.
