This was a pretty solid read on Norse mythology, which just happens to be a topic I’ve been studying. There’s still something about Gaiman’s writing that doesn’t quite click with me (yes, I know, I’m the only human alive who feels this disconnect), so I struggled at first.
In the end, I stuck with it, because I wanted a good overview of Norse mythology and knew this was going to provide it. Somewhere around 1/3 of the way in, I started to get comfortable with the style and began to really enjoy this from a storytelling perspective and not just as research. There’s definitely some good stuff here.
