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

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.

Enthralling mythology tails that keep me sitting in my car listening long after my journey home had finished
