Publisher's Summary

The great Norse myths are woven into the fabric of our storytelling - from Tolkien, Alan Garner and Rosemary Sutcliff to Game of Thrones and Marvel Comics. They are also an inspiration for Neil Gaiman's own award-bedecked, best-selling fiction. Now he reaches back through time to the original source stories in a thrilling and vivid rendition of the great Norse tales. Gaiman's gods are thoroughly alive - irascible, visceral, playful and passionate - and the tales carry us from the beginning of everything to Ragnarök and the twilight of the gods. Galvanised by Gaiman's prose, Thor, Loki, Odin and Freya are irresistible forces for modern listeners, and the crackling, brilliant writing demands to be heard around an open fire on a freezing, starlit night.

Wonderful stories

The stories are told so well and Neil Gaiman’s narration is excellent. I can’t think of a good reason not to listen to this again.

Norse Mythology overview at its best

Neil Gaiman managed a near impossible task in creating a view of Norse Mythology that I could understand. Since I did not grow up in the UK or Ireland, it was very confusing, until he retold the stories is a way that seems to follow a chronological structure.
Teaching by story telling - the way it ought to be done all the time.
Thanks Neil.

Blood and ice and lots of mead!

Great myths, so many so similar to other modern tales and yet so distinct and rowdy. Made me want to go back to Iceland!

Norseome

Neil, tells the stories of the Norse Gods with ease and in his own relaxed style that, in my opinion, bring the characters to life in a way that relates to now, its current..and I, for one absolutely loved it...I've read all the classic tomes on North Mythology, poetic Eddas, Sagas, quite heavy going for even the most dedicated seekers of the Nordic Deities ..!
I recommend pouring a large glass of mead, throwing a log on the fire, sitting back and be transported back to the world at it's very beginning with Ginnunganap, until its end with the coming of Ragnarok.
Skäl! :)
