What made the experience of listening to Popular Tales from the Norse the most enjoyable?
There are some great tales and they are well told. There are several that have several variations of the same story and I don't think they all needed to be in the book. It made the book long and it started getting boring.

What other book might you compare Popular Tales from the Norse to and why?
This book reads like a compilation of Aesops Fables...some short, some long, usually with a lesson at the end.
What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?
The reader did an adequate job of changing voices for characters...not the best I've heard, but good.
Any additional comments?
The book is simply a compilation of tales or fables, many of them universal, not specific to Norse peoples. But it is a great introduction to Norse culture, if you've never heard it before. My son and I listened to this together. He is twelve and most of the stories were a little too young for him.
