My now 14 year old and I have listened to all the Riordan books on audio. We were really looking forward to this; unfortunately, we found this to be the worst of his narrators. The narration here was so bad that it was hard to focus on the underlying stories. It felt more choppy than his other "nonfiction" myth books (Greek Gods and Greek Heroes) but that could have been the rushed, clipped, overly sarcastic narration.
My disappointment was increased since this book was really needed to explain the Norse myths, which were less familiar to me than the Greek and Roman ones he's previously set stories with.
I realize this is a "name" actor, but not all actors make good narrators.

I hated this book. But don’t let that stop you from reading it. There are likely many 12 year-olds that find it interesting.
