Norse MythologyLarge Print - 2017
From Library Staff
A dazzling new version of the
great Norse myths. Through
Gaiman’s deft and witty prose,
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. Addictive reading.
Nordic myths and folktales retold by the legendary Neil Gaiman.
From the critics
SummaryAdd a Summary
In the beginning, there was nothing but the mist world and the fire world. From these came Ymir, a giant both male and female, the first of all beings. Ymir was slain by Odin, called the all-father, for Odin both created the gods that you will read about here, and breathed life into the first humans. In these pages, Thor will acquire his famous hammer, the mighty Mjollnir. Loki will get his fellow gods into and out of trouble countless times, until he finally plays the trick that will lose him their trust once and for all. Witness the creation of the great walls of Asgard, the genesis of the gift of poetry, and the source of the gods’ immortality, as retold by Neil Gaiman.

There were things Thor did when something went wrong. The first thing he did was ask himself if what had happened was Loki’s fault. Thor pondered. He did not believe that even Loki would have dared to steal his hammer. So he did the next thing he did when something went wrong, and went to ask Loki for advice.
