Reviews

In these accessible, retold tales, fantasy is odd, and real, and dire.--Ethan Gilsdorf
Weaving together ancient Norse mythology with 21st-century sensibility, Gaiman's storytelling once again recreates an entire genre for the modern reader.--Chelsea Hassler
Evocative and lyrical.... It is quite simply a breathtaking novel that is as matchless as the Norse gods themselves.--Alex Brown
A lively, funny, and very human rendition of Thor the thunder god, his father Odin, and the dark-hearted trickster Loki (plus countless other gods and monsters).--Petra Mayer
A clear, continuous narrative, with big scenes the same as they always were but with emotional pointers added.--Tom Shippey
Gaiman has such a profound understanding of the conflicts of Odin, Thor, Loki, and other gods that he revitalizes them through his imaginative depictions. His interpretation of major Norse myths will draw readers into a strange realm that will dazzle and baffle and lead to a new appreciation of Norse mythology.--Jack Zipes, editor of The Norton Anthology of Children's Literature
Norse Mythology introduces readers to a deeper world, rooted in the traditions of northern story telling. And what most of us know of Norse mythology only scratches the surface.... Gaiman's book serves as a welcome point of entry to a new generation of readers.--Bill Jones
