Neil Gaiman’s retelling of Norse mythology is simply brilliant. He manages to keep that poetic, imaginative and irrational tone that myths generally have in their languages of origin which is lost when translated. ┬áThis was my first reading of Norse Mythology and I thoroughly enjoyed the book which is split into several short chapters based on individual stories. I also realised how heavily Tolkein and others who created fantasy fiction have borrowed from Norse Mythology.


Must read if you have enjoyed superhero comics and fantasy fiction!
