Critic Reviews

“...keep the children gripped on the classics and rekindle the imaginations of 6-10 year-olds, almost ignored by children's radio and bludgeoned by Aussie soaps and Hollywood special effects....” ( The Guardian)

pretty good

This was pretty good, well worth listening to. However, some key stories were left out, like Odin losing his eye and the death of Balder, both of which are important in the mythology. At times the production is a little melodramatic, but I am glad I got it.

Awesome Performance

Loved it. Narrator made this book even better than it already would have been on it's own if I'd have read it from it's pages. I've listened to 3 audio books of Norse mythology and this has been my favorite so far.

Great, reminds me of my childhood.

This is a fantastic audiobook, brilliant narration and equally great stories.

I used to have this audiobook on tape when I was younger and this brings back all the memories of long car journeys listening to the mischief of Loki and the other gods all trying to make things better.



Highly recommended, especially as an introduction to norse myths for young children.
