Review: Norse Mythology

Norse Mythology
Norse Mythology by Neil Gaiman

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I have a humungous love for all things Norse mythology, so was excited to see advertised somewhere recently that Neil Gaiman had written a book focussing on Norse myths. (I’ve only recently become a fan of his works, so it was a like double ‘wowza’ moment for me.) The book is actually re-tellings of the myths, which is nice. Although there’s nothing new here (at least for me, being a massive Norse myth nerd), I enjoyed the book nevertheless. It was entertaining and funny and stayed true to the original myths; I had forgotten how many – ‘Loki! Loki – NO!’ moments there were. If something goes wrong, blame Loki, basically.

This book is perfect for those who are totally unfamiliar with Norse myths and want to know more. It would even be good for those who already are familiar with the myths and just want to ‘refreshify’ the memory. It’s definitely something that I will enjoy long into the future.
