Norse Mythology by Neil Gaiman

Norse Mythology by Neil Gaiman-299 pages

I really enjoyed reading this. Neil Gaiman is a master storyteller and brings Norse myths back to life. I have not read the Norse myths before, although I have heard some of Thor and Odin and Loki and I have seen the show Vikings on History Channel which discusses it a little. I have also seen the Marvel Thor movies based on the comics. Gaiman's retelling of the myths of the Norse gods is gripping and enjoyable. It is full of both humor and tragedy with Gaiman's typical storytelling prowess shining through all of it. I would recommend this to anyone who likes mythology or who is a fan of Gaiman.
