My rating: 3 of 5 stars
For the most part I enjoyed this book. I really think that it should have been much larger. You’ll blow through this one in one sitting.
An introduction to such a vast subject as Norse Mythology can be problematic as it could well fall between two stools; so packed with details as to put one off, or so vague, that one is none the wiser for having read it. This text manages a pleasing balance, succeeds in whetting the appetite and supplying excellent online resources for the reader who wishes to find out more.
Inside you will read about…
✓ The Creation in Norse Mythology
✓ The Nine Worlds
✓ Major Gods and Goddesses
✓ The Sagas
✓ The Influence of Norse Mythology on Our Lives Today
