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!
