Review: Norse Mythology: A Concise Guide to Gods, Heroes, Sagas and Beliefs of Norse Mythology

Norse Mythology: A Concise Guide to Gods, Heroes, Sagas and Beliefs of Norse Mythology (Greek Mythology - Norse Mythology - Egyptian Mythology Book 2)Norse Mythology: A Concise Guide to Gods, Heroes, Sagas and Beliefs of Norse Mythology by Robert Carlson

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Concise

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
✓ Valhalla
✓ Ragnarok
✓ The Sagas
✓ The Influence of Norse Mythology on Our Lives Today

The author quotes generously from the most important relevant source which is freely available via the Project Gutenberg, and you are left with the sounds and taste of the times… ringing in your ears and tingling on your tongue.
