Book Review: Norse Mythology by Neil Gaiman

Norse Mythology is the newest addition to my “writers must read” list. It’s not just my fascination with Norse mythology or my love of everything Mr. Gaiman writes, it’s the way the tales flow, one into the next. There are so many origin stories, so many myths and legends that have shaped nearly every story available today and these remind me of our roots.

From the birth of the Gods to their demise, this book is full of beautiful renditions of the legends that influenced so much including modern fiction and comic books. There are explanations for why salmon have thinner tails and where the sun and moon come from. Or discover the tales of Loki’s children and the Gods’ enmity with the giants. Truly, there is something for everyone in this one.
