Retelling the Old Stories
Norse Mythology - Neil Gaiman

Years ago, back when Neil Gaiman was still writing Sandman, I can recall reading a magazine interview in which he was asked if there was in any superhero character at DC or Marvel he would like to write. He replied that he felt he had a great Thor story to tell but that Marvel would never give him the creative freedom he would need to tell it. When I saw that Gaiman had written a book called Norse Mythology with a big hammer on the cover, my first thought was that he had finally written his Thor story.

 

Instead what we have is a straight ahead retelling of some of the key Norse myths. Sort of an Edith Hamilton's Mythology for the Norse gods. This is clearly a topic that Gaiman is passionate about, and his description of Ragnarok is the highlight of the book, but these are stories that have been told many times. In his introduction, Gaiman laments all the lost Norse tales that did not survive into modern times. I wish Gaiman had taken it upon himself to reinvent those lost stories rather than retell the known ones. All the stories were made up by somebody at sometime, why not tell new stories of Odin and Loki and the others?

Norse Mythology - Neil Gaiman

Lovely read. Nail Gaiman's the perfect author to breathe fresh life into the Norse tales of badly behaving, violent, tricky, lustful, flawed, and complicated gods.

Norse Mythology - DNF
Norse Mythology - Neil Gaiman

I've finally found a Gaiman book that just doesn't do it for me. This is the third time I've tried listening to this audio, performed by Himself, and just can't stick with it. My mind kept wandering. DNF after 30 minutes.

Norse Mythology - Neil Gaiman

These were so interesting. I've not read much about the Norse gods. Loki is definitely the star of the book IMO. He's forever up to something. The other gods are more serious. He livens everything up. This is told in a cool way so that even if it's a gruesome tale of gore the reader gets maximum enjoyment. Norse Mythology was definitely a treat.
