The great Norse myths are woven into the fabric of our storytelling�from Tolkien, Alan Garner and Rosemary Sutcliff to Game of Thrones and Marvel Comics. They are also an inspiration for Neil Gaiman�s own award-bedecked, bestselling fiction. Now he reaches back through time to the original source stories in a thrilling and vivid rendition of the great Norse tales. Gaiman�s gods are thoroughly alive on the page�irascible, visceral, playful, passionate�and the tales carry us from the beginning of everything to Ragnar�k and the twilight of the gods. Galvanised by Gaiman�s prose, Thor, Loki, Odin and Freya are irresistible forces for modern readers and the crackling, brilliant writing demands to be read aloud around an open fire on a freezing, starlit night.,
