Publisher's Summary

In Norse Mythology and Runes, this book depicts the main Norse pantheon as follows: Odin, the highest of the mighty, wise, daring, and cunning; Thor, Odin's son, extremely powerful but not the wisest of gods; and Loki, Odin's blood brother and a trickster and unrivalled manipulator.

This book relates the stories in the form of a novelistic arc, beginning with the creation of the mythical nine worlds and progressing through the adventures of deities, dwarfs, and giants. When Thor's hammer is stolen, he must disguise himself as a woman - a difficult task given his beard and voracious appetite - in order to reclaim it. More moving is the story of how the blood of Kvasir, the wisest of gods, is transformed into a mead that infuses drinkers with poetry. Ragnarok, the dusk of the gods and the birth of a new time and people, is the culmination of the job.

Very entertaining.

Loved it, it was very interesting to hear the stories of the old gods and the smart ways Loki (the god I follow closest) would get in and out of trouble.

Amazing

Really enjoyed this book. Gareth's narration is great.
I would recommend it, if like me, you're interested in Norse Mythology. It was long enough to satisfy my interest but not so long that it got boring.

Norse Mythology

Nichole Steven did an excellent job of translating the Norse myths into digestible stories. I never realized just how much humor Norse mythology contained. this book made me laugh out loud several times. I also found it surprisingly moving towards the end. I couldn't recommend it enough.

Brilliant

I lean towards nonfiction for audio books but this one was just fantastic. I was sad that it ended. Incredibly well-written and Richards's performance was captivating.

Masterpiece of Ancient Mythology

This is one of the most breathtaking and spellbinding works of literature I've ever read, all from classic Norse.

Good easy listen!

Wonderfully read by Gareth Richards. Captivating and interesting. I have the book, but wanted to make sure the pronunciations with some of the names. Highly recommend.

Masterpiece.

This is the most engrossing and entertaining rendition of the Germanic Eddic myth. Gareth Richards brings the myths to life and emphasizes the art of storytelling while faithfully conveying the original content. This is how the myths were meant to be experienced by the ancients--by a master story teller.
