I like the fact how Ed elaborates in such great detail about his climbs. The information is great. As a mountaineer, I listened to this book as I lost weight and got into shape to begin climbing.
wonderful, adventurous and Norse. I am listening to the entire trilogy. This books is a fantastic amalgamation of Norse myth, general fairy tale, and classic adventure. Recommended for any one who craves all things Norse.
Very good book, descriptive and holds your interest. It is most certainly a "one sitting" book.
Historical, adventurous, addictive
The beginning battles around Antioch. The description of the scenes puts you there, makes you feel like you are at the siege.
Authors grasp of the Old Norse religion is wonderful. The story is pleasant, gives me a good, positive feeling. It takes me away, into a different world.
I am interested in Viking history. I am working on my masters, and my thesis is within the field of Viking studies. The author has a wonderful grasp of the history of the northmen.
