Must be for really young ones

Story did not capture us and the reading was painful to listen to. We did not last 30 min before we had enough.

Disappointing set of short stories

This is the last installment in the Norse mythology set of books. We found this somewhat underwhelming. The short stories vary a lot in quality. Overall it just wasn’t as much fun as the main novels where there is more of a plot.

We did really enjoy the narration however.

why the multiple voices?

good narrators give each character their own voice. listeners like consistency in those voices, Dick Hill-Jack Reacher series, etc.

Pretty disappointed

Although Norse sagas were short stories, after having decent storylines for several books to fall back to the short stories was disappointing the way the Norse Mythology Book by Gaiman. The different perspectives was interesting but would have been more fun if it was about the story in the books so far, in parallel the way Orson Scott Card did in the Ender’s Game series

Annoying

I found the voices in this production grating and annoying. With each new one I hoped that maybe there would be a different, better narrator, but no. It doesn't help that somehow RR's first-person-character writing style works better in a printed book than in an audio tale. The dialogue just felt stiff—compounded by the irritating narration. I'd recommend reading this one in print, but even then only if you've read every other book in any of the gods' series and are being a completist about it all.

disappointing

I was disappointed in this book. not worth the money. I think a clear disclaimer is needed about the story line and contents.

Gritted my teeth no more

Heindalf an instagram obsessed little b, Thor a farting god, valkiries a food fighting army? Really Rick? Percy was mad at the gods, he kept them at bay, Carter Kane fought them with everything he had but now in this book series they are a circus, dumb, buffons parading around for what? I do not understand the point of making the gods look so ridiculous. Is it an American thing to ridiculize other cultures? Seems to me Nordic gods are being portrayed as nothing less than dumb savages that knew nothing more than say ‘sad face emoji’. I couldn’t make it pass thru the second chapter when I stopped the audiobook and will return it. It did stang since I have been a fan, waiting for the new book every year but maybe I grew too old for your books which its a shame, I enjoyed to having the concept of ancient gods in modern times, too bad now my powerful gods are being displayed as clowns who are only good to make teenagers laugh. ‘Sad face emoji’ indeed.
