Publisher's Summary

Before time as we know it began, gods and goddesses lived in the city of Asgard. Odin All Father crossed the Rainbow Bridge to walk among men in Midgard. Thor defended Asgard with his mighty hammer. Mischievous Loki was constantly getting into trouble with the other gods, and dragons and giants walked free. This collection of Norse sagas retold by author Padraic Colum gives us a sense of that magical time when the world was filled with powers and wonders we can hardly imagine.

Narration at its best!

This was an extremely entertaining listen. Norse mythology has always been a great love of mine. The author and the narrator did it justice. Ulf Bjorklund gave a stellar performance and his pronunciation was spot-on! No complaints from this happy listener.

Norse Mythology--good listen

Overall, this was just a fun romp through Norse Mythology. The stories are super old-timey, but that makes it all the more fun to listen to. The narrator really did a good job capturing the mood, he had the appropriate accent but it wasn't too thick. It felt like you were sitting down to listen to an old, Norse bedtime story.
A lot of the characters therein are familiar to people now, so I was interested to learn their back stories and this definitely did that for me.

Fantastic

Traveling across the U.S., and decided to listen to this book. I have already listened twice, and could listen again (most likely will). Great job by the narrator, and great book by the author.
