Publisher's Summary

Odd's luck has been bad so far. He lost his father on a Viking expedition, his foot was crushed beneath a tree and the winter seems to be going on forever. But when Odd flees to the woods and releases a trapped bear, his luck begins to change.
The eagle, bear and fox he encounters reveal they're actually Norse gods trapped in animal form by the evil frost giants who have conquered Asgard, the city of the gods....
Can a 12-year-old boy reclaim Thor's hammer, outwit the frost giants and release the gods? With Neil Gaiman's wit and style, this story transcends the everyday and becomes a humorous, rich and layered tale of a life lived courageously.

amazing!

Gaiman is perfect as always. Though this novel is very short its beautiful and Gaimans voice is really amazing. Plot is good but short and more linear, without any really unpredictable twists. Though atmosphere is good.

A short story gift from a fantasy genius.

What a lovely little gem. A perfect listen for adults and kids.

Neil Gaiman takes you into a wonderful imaginative adventure and one more time shows that he's an artist in the way he layers his writing... there are just so many hidden meanings in Odd's story. It is interesting, fun and beautiful.

The only thing is that you really need to love the author's style to spend a whole credit or money on such a short book. From a Gaiman addict: it was well worth it.

Narration is perfect. Having book well read by its creator is a simple pleasure.
