Editorial Reviews

Review

“In these accessible, retold tales, fantasy is odd, and real, and dire.”
- Ethan Gilsdorf, Boston Globe

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

“Evocative and lyrical.… It is quite simply a breathtaking novel that is as matchless as the Norse gods themselves.”
- Alex Brown, Tor

Norse Mythology introduces readers to a deeper world, rooted in the traditions of northern story telling. And what most of us know of Norse mythology only scratches the surface.… Gaiman’s book serves as a welcome point of entry to a new generation of readers.”
- Bill Jones, A.V. Club

“Who else but Neil Gaiman could become an accomplice of the gods, using the sorcery of words to make their stories new? The author of American Gods transforms Norse myths into addictive reading for young and old, with high-wattage retellings that preserve the monumental grandeur of the Nordic universe but also turn it into a world that is up close and personal, full of antic wit and dark intrigue.”
- Maria Tatar, translator and editor of The Annotated Brothers Grimm

“A lively, funny, and very human rendition of Thor the thunder god, his father Odin, and the dark-hearted trickster Loki (plus countless other gods and monsters).”
- Petra Mayer, NPR

“In Norse Mythology, Gaiman brings voice to the old myths so viscerally that listening to the audiobook every night for a week, I thought my bedroom might explode into Valhalla. The entire Norse pantheon, including dwarves and giants and demons, plays out as vividly as a novel or film. Honestly I may have to order a breastplate of some sort. As Gaiman puts it in the introduction, the stories feel like a journey from the ice and fire that created the world to the fire and ice that end it.”
- Lidia Yuknavitch, New York Times Book Review

“A clear, continuous narrative, with big scenes the same as they always were but with emotional pointers added.”
- Tom Shippey, The Wall Street Journal

“Gaiman has such a profound understanding of the conflicts of Odin, Thor, Loki, and other gods that he revitalizes them through his imaginative depictions. His interpretation of major Norse myths will draw readers into a strange realm that will dazzle and baffle and lead to a new appreciation of Norse mythology.”
- Jack Zipes, editor of The Norton Anthology of Children’s Literature

“Gaiman’s prose is bright and fluid, his storytelling clear and cogent.… Norse Mythology ably captures the essence of a myth cycle that deserves to be better known, in an edition likely to speak to readers of all ages.”
- Michael Berry, San Francisco Chronicle
