4.1 - ratings - Source

Neil Gaiman, long inspired by ancient mythology in creating the fantastical realms of his fiction, presents a bravura rendition of the Norse gods and their world from their origin though their upheaval in Ragnarok.

In Norse Mythology, Gaiman stays true to the myths in envisioning the major Norse pantheon: Odin, the highest of the high, wise, daring, and cunning; Thor, Odin’s son, incredibly strong yet not the wisest of gods; and Loki—son of a giant—blood brother to Odin and a trickster and unsurpassable manipulator.

Gaiman fashions these primeval stories into a novelistic arc that begins with the genesis of the legendary nine worlds and delves into the exploits of deities, dwarfs, and giants. Through Gaiman’s deft and witty prose, these gods emerge with their fiercely competitive natures, their susceptibility to being duped and to duping others, and their tendency to let passion ignite their actions, making these long-ago myths breathe pungent life again.

Norse Mythology is the best book in this series, although it can most definitely be read as a stand alone. Norse Mythology brings us story to tell everyone.

It was hard to get past how the girls were treated in this book. Disrespected, slut-shamed. If you can manage to overcome that, good luck trying to get past the cheese-fest that was this book Norse Mythology.
I tried. I really did. I'll give it another year or two (since that's how long it's been since I've read a book by this author).
