Gaiman has put together a lovely little introduction to Norse mythology in this collection of cleanly written tales. The narrative voice is one that you could imagine belonging to a storyteller, sharing stories. Some of my favorite myths are found in these pages, and several I had not yet read. Overall the selection reads like a continuing story, rather than simply a collection of individual stories. An enjoyable read for both those new to and familiar with Norse mythology.
