Disappointed

If you're looking for a Christian view on norse mythology, then this is the book for you! I resented the comment in the beginning stating, "our Scandinavian ancestors had no idea about the one and only true God" ,so much that I could not finish the book.

too many discrepancies

I'm not personally a fan of the narrator. the way he spoke sounded juvenile. it was almost as if the myth of the Gods was a joke. there are far too many discrepancies and what seems like home made stories. I'm sorry just say this but I Give It 2 stars at best

Awesome Narration!

If you could sum up Asgard Stories in three words, what would they be?

Old but fun.

Would you recommend Asgard Stories to your friends? Why or why not?

Absolutely. We're all Neil Gaiman nerds; I recently listened to Norse Mythology and then came here for this as a bit of a back drop. Cool to listen to the original stories.

Have you listened to any of Keith O'Brien’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

No but he was perfect for this audiobook! So much fun to listen to him and he suited the stories very well.

I love Neil Gaiman but I think he basically plagiarized this entire book. Anyway both are great.

Great but short.

The History of the Gods have been around for years an this book is fast an quick. With just a quick look at the stories that define Norse mythology. If you are looking for a deep understanding of the Gods then self I would suggest Neil Gaiman he has wrote a book about the Gods himself an there is no real difference between the story's that are being told other then depth detail.

With that being said I myself like this book it is great an the narrator kept me entertained how he told the story's. The write also gives you the history of Odin an how he became All-Father, why he has one eye, Thor an his Hammer Miljoner how an why it was forged, an Ragnarok the end times.

Very boring and mispronunciations

I could not finish this one. The narrator was incredibly boring, and pronounced Nordic words and names wrong.

I am very disappointed 👎

Almost the first thing said in this book was "before the peoples of the North knew the one true God" this I find annoying and demeaning to the stories of the ancient races this sort of set my mood for the rest of the book, I will not recommend this book as some of the stories do not seem to be correct from other accounts I have read
