Unabridged Audiobook

Duration: 6 hours 30 minutes

Summary:

Introducing an instant classic--master storyteller Neil Gaiman presents a dazzling version of the great Norse myths.

Neil Gaiman has long been inspired by ancient mythology in creating the fantastical realms of his fiction. Now he turns his attention back to the source, presenting a bravura rendition of the great northern tales. In Norse Mythology, Gaiman fashions primeval stories into a novelistic arc that begins with the genesis of the legendary nine worlds; delves into the exploits of the deities, dwarves, and giants; and culminates in Ragnarok, the twilight of the gods and the rebirth of a new time and people. Gaiman stays true to the myths while vividly reincarnating Odin, the highest of the high, wise, daring, and cunning; Thor, Odin’s son, incredibly strong yet not the wisest of gods; and Loki, the son of a giant, a trickster and unsurpassable manipulator. From Gaiman’s deft and witty prose emerges the gods with their fiercely competitive natures, their susceptibility to being duped and to dupe others, and their tendency to let passion ignite their actions, making these long-ago myths breathe pungent life again.

    This was a fabulous book in both writing and narration. This gave such a life to the Norse folklore that part of my ancestry comes from. Neil Gaiman is simply brilliant and is such a amazing writer. Thank you Neil!!!

    listened to these Tales on audio books and I can't tell you enough how much it is a gift to hear literature narrated by the genius who authored it. Neil Gaiman's writing style is unique and brilliant, his humour subtle and seductive. this is a treat for anyone going on a long road trip or commute. finally Norse mythology is getting the props it deserves enjoy!

    Really enjoyed the stories, made clearer and clearer by the 'writer.'

  • Chasi D.

    Amazing! Stories were told beautifully and, better yet, told by the writer which I always love because they, generally, have the most passion for their own stories.
