Neil Gaiman has long been inspired by ancient mythology in creating the fantastical realms of his fiction. Now he presents his fashioning of the primeval Norse myths into a novel, which begins with the genesis of the legendary nine worlds, delves into the exploits of the deities, dwarves, and giants, and culminates in Ragnarok, the twilight of the gods and the rebirth of a new time and people. Gaiman stays true to the myths while vividly recreating the characters--the gods with their fiercely competitive natures, their susceptibility to being duped and to dupe others, and their tendencey to let passion ignite their actions--and making these long-ago myths breathe pungent life again.--… (més)

    themulhern: The one is a fine retelling of Norse mythology, the other is humorous fantasy based on Norse mythology. So they compliment each other nicely. And both are written rather cleverly.

The cool characters and events of Norse mythology with the awesomely whimsical storytelling of Neil Gaiman. He narrates the audiobook himself. What more could you ask for? If you like mythology, fantasy, or simply great storytelling, this is a must-read. ( )

I’m a Gaiman fan though I’ve not read this one. Not sure what I’d make of it in print, but I found the audio dramatisation thoroughly entertaining. This was an hour and a half of fun with a varied cast, including the author. The telling of Norse Mythology told as someone telling a story. ( )

Beautiful narration. Almost reminds me of Stephen Fry's audiobooks. ( )

I loved the humor present in a lot of these stories. If you like Thor and Loki you'll have a lot of fun reading this book. If you're unfamiliar with norse mythology, the name dump may be overwhelming at first, but you eventually get used to it- plus the book has a nice glossary at the end. ( )

I...FREAKING. LOVED. this book! That ending...I...I...just Wow!

I borrowed this from the library on Audio and had to wait for 75 other people to listen to it, so 3ish months, but it was SO worth it! I wanted to read more of Gaiman's' work, since I have only ever read one of this other books, Neverwhere. I've always been a huge mythology fan, and Norse being my favorite, I couldn't pass up the chance to read this one, and everyone on Litsy suggested the audio. It was perfection!

So, on to details about the books. Of course, I loved Loki, I always do, but I was super surprised that I liked Thor in this one too! Normally I don't, so for me, that was kind of a big deal. There really wasn't any character that I specifically disliked in this one, they all had a purpose and serves it well.

I also really enjoyed the plot and the many adventures of the gods of Asgard. Many made me laugh, a few were disgusting (which was a good thing!), and that ending almost made me cry.(Something I almost NEVER do because of a book or movie.) It did get a strong stunned silence, and just wow! So good! Plus the audio was a joy to listen to, I love Gaiman's voice, and his emotions while reading!

Now I'm off to see about finding the BBC version of Neverwhere to listen to! ( )

Introduction
It's as hard to have a favorite sequence of myths as it is to have a favorite style of cooking (some nights you might want Thai food, some nights sushi, other nights you crave the plain home cooking you grew up on).
Many gods and goddesses are named in Norse mythology.
