Norse Mythology [9781408886816]

(No reviews yet) Write a Review

'One of the joys of reading Gaiman is how he subverts our expectations of magic, horror, fantasy and the mundane' - The Times

The Norse myths are woven into the fabric of our storytelling - from the novels of Tolkien to the worlds of comics and superheroes. They are also an inspiration for Neil Gaiman's own award-winning bestselling fiction.

Now Gaiman reaches back through time to the original source stories in an epic and electrifying retelling of the great Norse myths - thrilling tales of dwarfs and frost giants, of treasures and magic, and of Asgard, home to the gods: Odin the all-father, highest and oldest of the gods; his mighty son Thor, whose hammer, Mjollnir, was forged by dwarfs and makes the mountain giants tremble; Loki, wily and handsome, reliably unreliable in his lusts; and Freya, more beautiful than the sun or the moon, who gives short shrift to the gods, giants and ogres who seek to control her.

Gaiman's gods are thoroughly alive on the page - irascible, visceral, playful, passionate - as he leads us from the beginning of everything to Ragnarok, the inescapable final downfall of the gods...


AUTHOR: Neil Gaiman has written highly acclaimed books for children and adults and is the first author to have won the Carnegie and Newbery Medals for the same work - The Graveyard Book. The Sleeper and the Spindle, illustrated by Chris Riddell, won the 2016 Kate Greenaway Medal. His novel, American Gods, has been adapted into a major television series.
