Formerly a blog about events in and around Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. Since it's inception it has morphed into a book review site. Enjoy! Comments are welcome, if there is a book you'd like to suggest I read please let me know.
Publisher:New York : W.W. Norton & Company, 
A very good retelling of Norse
Mythology. The author covers the stories in sequence, which is
something that is not frequently done. Most authors emphasize certain
stories, and exclude other entirely but this volume was fairly
complete. The majority of what we know about Norse Mythology / religion has been related to us in "The Prose Edda" by Snori Sturluson, these stories aren't the easiest to read as they are translations from Icelandic, but are quite enjoyable. Mr. Gaiman has adapted them and brings them to life with his typical writing style. I would like to see companion volumes on Greek & Roman
Mythology from Mr. Gaiman as well as I believe this would be invaluable.
