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.
Norse Mythology Recommendation Rating: 3
1: Something worth checking out if you have time
2: Something that is a hit for some people, but not a must for everyone
3: Something worth prioritizing if interested
4: Something worth making time to check out
5: An absolute home run, worth going out of your way for
This is a blog for myself (and hopefully others) to keep track of all of the places, restaurants, books, movies, etc. that I do not want to forget. I am a college student who has lived in the US, Asia, and Europe for extended periods of time; I am very lucky to have had these experiences, and I want to share my recommendations with people interested in any of these locations.
NONE of these posts are advertisements. I do not have any discount codes or promotions for anything I write about; however, this should be considered a positive because it means that everything I write about reflects my true feelings. In order to keep this blog positive, my posts will only be recommendations for the things I enjoy the most in life. The topics will vary between whatever subjects I am interested in at a certain time, and I will have 1-2 new posts per day.
I wish I could have started this project earlier while some of my memories were fresher in my mind, but it is better late than never. I hope that other people will have the chance to visit or experience things that I write about, and I hope that people will have a similar taste in life to myself!
