Norse Mythology

Norse-mythology-book-cover“Norse Mythology” by Neil Gaiman
Folklore/Fairytale – 4 stars

Delightful, short retellings of classic Norse myths. I’ve never read the original translations but I’m pretty sure Gaiman has updated the language considerably and made these stories feel modern and fresh. Simple language and sharp wit kept me turning the pages. An easy read for the summer and a must if you are 1)into Marvel comics/superhero movies and/or 2)encounter current Norse mythology craze in kidlit. A well-done, timely book as usual for Gaiman.
