Norse Mythology by Neil Gaiman

This is a new retelling of Scandinavian Mythology. It follows the familiar pattern from origin myths to Ragnarok. Most of the stories follow Odin, Thor and Loki as there is the most material on them according to the author.

I always loved reading about these myths when I was a kid, more so than the Greek or Roman ones, so I had high hopes for this, particularly as it’s written by Neil Gaiman.

And it was perfectly fine. Nothing especially wrong with it but nothing that stood out either. I was expecting more, what that more is I don’t know but I wanted it nevertheless. It’s also a very short read. The book is circa 260 pages but with normal formatting it could have been 100.
