Publisher's Summary

"A surprise from the author of Chocolat," New York Times best-selling author Joanne M. Harris, "this pacy adult fantasy is narrated by Loki, the Norse god of fire and mischief" (Vogue).

This novel is a brilliant first-person narrative of the rise and fall of the Norse gods - retold from the point of view of the world's ultimate trickster, Loki. A number-one best seller in the UK, The Gospel of Loki tells the story of Loki's recruitment from the underworld of Chaos; his many exploits on behalf of his one-eyed master, Odin; through to his eventual betrayal of the gods and the fall of Asgard.

Using her lifelong passion for the Norse myths, New York Times best seller Joanne M. Harris has created a vibrant and powerful fantasy novel that the Sunday Sun recommends "to her long-standing audience with wit, style and obvious enjoyment"; The Sunday Times claims it "lively and fun"; and The Metro adds that "Harris has enormous fun with her antihero...this mythical bad boy should beguile fans of Neil Gaiman".

    The performance of this book was superb! The tale itself is well written, funny and engaging and the narrator really brought it to life.

    "A Fun Read"

    A truly enjoyable light read. This book does a lot of summary of stories in Norse mythology based on low key little more beef and it would have been 5 stars.

    Any additional comments?

    It is hard to say which was most spectacular, the story or the performance of it!

    Anyone familiar with Norse myth will revel in this title.

    "Loved this!"

    I enjoyed every minute of this story. It almost seems like a pre-sequal to Runemarks. There are so many similarities between the two books.

    "Walking In Loki's Shoes"

    Same myths but different perspective. Gives me insight into possible motivations for why Loki behaved as he did and did what he did. Doesn't excuse him, but does give context. It was a refreshing way of telling the stories I've enjoyed my whole life. Highly entertaining. Narration was excellent.

    "Great Interpretation, Great Story"

    this book goes over all of the Viking and Norse Tales from the gods of old. the way that the author describes Loki's perspective in all of these stories is fantastic. by the end of this book I am more securely convinced that Loki was a victim of betrayal and thus became the trickster out of necessity.

    "Great, Great, Great!"

    This is added to my all time favorite listen list! Such a well-written and ingenious perspective which I think was enhanced by a mesmerizing performance by the narrator. I am a Neil Gaiman fan and just finished Nurse Gods and think this is an equal, not a competitor, enriching each other.

    "Not quite what I was looking for"

    The fault is entirely mine. I wanted a new story featuring Loki. What I got was a retelling of Loki's stories from Loki's perspective. If that's what you're looking for, you will likely enjoy this book. It's well-written and well-performed. It just wasn't for me.
