The Children of Odin

Unabridged Audiobook

Written By: Padraic Colum

Narrated By: Elizabeth Klett

Date: January 2016

Duration: 6 hours 24 minutes

Summary:

Master storyteller Padraic Colum's rich, musical voice captures all the magic and majesty of the Norse sagas in his retellings of the adventures of the gods and goddesses who lived in the Northern paradise of Asgard before the dawn of history. Here are the matchless tales of All-Father Odin, who crosses the Rainbow Bridge to walk among men in Midgard and sacrifices his right eye to drink from the Well of Wisdom; of Thor, whose mighty hammer defends Asgard; of Loki, whose mischievous cunning leads him to treachery against the gods; of giants, dragons, dwarfs and Valkyries; and of the terrible last battle that destroyed their world. (Summary from Project Gutenberg)

    For anyone who loves ancient myths, legends, and lore (like Greek, Roman, Egyptian), add Norse Mythology to your appetite. Amazing to hear about the exploits of Thor, Odin, Freya, Loki, and others whom I never cared enough for or even heard of. The stories and themes didn't seem relevant to today's world, but if you put yourself in the minds of the Vikings, it's a very fun listen. The narrator also did a great job. LibriVox has many other great authors, but Ms. Klett still did a good job with differentiating the male and female tones of the characters.
