Neil Gaiman has long been inspired by ancient mythology in creating the fantastical realms of his fiction. Now he turns his attention back to the source, presenting a bravura rendition of the great northern tales. In Norse Mythology, Gaiman fashions primeval stories into a novelistic arc that begins with the genesis of the legendary nine worlds; delves into the exploits of the deities, dwarves, and giants; and culminates in Ragnarok, the twilight of the gods and the rebirth of a new time and people.
As good as it gets without the old texts

A non-textbook look at Norse mythology
Neil Gaiman does a fantastic job as both writer and narrator in this book. I've always wanted to know more about Norse mythology, but reading out of textbooks, or books that read like textbooks, was never my thing. This book brings the stories and characters to life in a more traditional, short story kind of way. I like that instead of just relaying stories, it includes dialogue, emotion, and thoughts of the characters, which really bring the stories to life.
I always worry about books read by the author, but Gaiman does not disappoint. He gives a superb reading of these stories, leaving the reader wanting for nothing. My only wish would be for it to be longer, but hey, you can't have everything!

Great, but half a story!
This book was wonderful, but ended in what seemed like the middle of a chapter!
