Neil Gaiman is a great storyteller, and he is the author of other noteworthy books such as Coraline and The Graveyard Book. In this book, he blends a collection of Scandinavian folklore into a cohesive story. Each of the individual tales are only 15 pages or so, but they all related to each other in some way or another.
There are stories about characters such as Thor, Odin, Loki, and many others. You may only know a lot of these characters from the Marvel movies, but these are only tiny snippets of a much more detailed universe. This book is a great way to learn about the actual stories; it is also a very entertaining book, and all of the stories are either funny or captivating.
If you are looking for a light-hearted fiction book that is both interesting and easy to read, I would recommend giving Norse Mythology a chance.
