Product description


No contemporary fiction writer gets more of his power from the mythological tradition than Neil Gaiman. . . . As always, Gaiman's a charming raconteur . . . [and he] recognizes a ripping yarn when he sees one.--Douglas Wolk

A gripping, suspenseful and quite wonderful reworking of these famous tales. Once you fall into the rhythm of its glinting prose, you will happily read on and on, in thrall to Gaiman's skillful storytelling.--Michael Dirda

In reinterpreting the tales so faithfully and with such abundant joy, Gaiman assumes the role of fireside bard, inviting us to sit close on a chilly winter's night and chuckle and wonder along with him.--James Lovegrove

Mr. Gaiman milks [the Norse gods' hijinks] for all their humor and incongruity, very much in the spirit of the originals. . . . [He] has produced . . . a clear, continuous narrative, with big scenes the same as they always were but with emotional pointers added.--Tom Shippey

Remarkable. . . . Gaiman has provided an enchanting contemporary interpretation of the Viking ethos.--Lisa L. Hannett

Weaving together ancient Norse mythology with 21st-century sensibility, Gaiman's storytelling once again recreates an entire genre for the modern reader.
