Norse Mythology by Neil Gaiman
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
I used to pour over these sorts of tales when I was in junior high and high school. Recently, I had a rekindled interest, but had a difficult time finding anything that really shared the stories of Loki, Thor, Freyja and all the rest. My "finish date" on this is deceptive as I have probably listened to it 3 or 4 times.
If you want to take a trip into proper Norse mythology, this is the perfect book. The audio version has the added bonus of being read by the author, Mr. Gaiman. I would consider this a must read simply sue to the superb concept of how these stories were once used to explain the world as seen through the eyes of the Norsemen.
