Norse Mythology

By Neil Gaiman

Finished reading on July 9, 2018

A fine introduction to the Norse myths if you are, like me, a total beginner. Gaiman unfortunately refrains from bringing his own style into the translation of the poems; I think a heavier personal touch could have helped some of these stories.
