Norse Mythology MOBI í Paperback

Norse Mythology Neil Gaiman, long inspired by ancient mythology in creating the fantastical realms of his fiction, presents a bravura rendition of the Norse gods and their world from their origin though their upheaval in Ragnarok In Norse Mythology, Gaiman stays true to the myths in envisioning the major Norse pantheon Odin, the highest of the high, wise, daring, and cunning Thor, Odin s son, incredibly strong yet not the wisest of gods and Loki son of a giant blood brother to Odin and a trickster and unsurpassable manipulatorGaiman fashions these primeval stories into a novelistic arc that begins with the genesis of the legendary nine worlds and delves into the exploits of deities, dwarfs, and giants Through Gaiman s deft and witty prose, these gods emerge with their fiercely competitive natures, their susceptibility to being duped and to duping others, and their tendency to let passion ignite their actions, making these long ago myths breathe pungent life again

    I ve always loved mythology, folktales and legends They are the original fairy tales of humanity and, given the timeless fairytale quality to Gaiman s writing, it seemed to follow that he would be the perfect writer for a book of Norse mythology He is In fact, Gaiman seems born to write or rewrite myths.Norse mythology is actually one I ve always been less familiar with I kn

    Definitely short, but imminently readable This is one of the best straight mythology books I ve read when it comes to pure enjoyment I say this, fully aware that I m a Gaiman fanboy, and yet, I still mean it Don t look for fiction here Rather, look for the source material and a clear understanding of the Norse mythos as far as we have it So much has been lost and then, there s a ton

    In the beginning, there was nothing but mist and flames.At least, that s what the Edda claims.I ve always been fascinated with Norse Mythology and with everything ancient in general With its strong impact on Marvel s movies, metal music and J.R.R Tolkien, the AllFather of high fantasy, references to the mighty Gods of Asgard, and the impending twilight thereof, are a part of daily life Neil Gaiman did not

    First off the cover of this book is amaze balls I just freaking love it Many gods and goddesses are named in Norse mythology You will meet quite a few of them in these pages Most of the stories we have, however, concern two gods, Odin and his son Thor, and Odin s blood brother, a giant s son called Loki, who lives with the Aesir in Asgard I have always wanted to read a good book on Norse Mythology and I think Neil Gaiman did a gr
