    • Bibliotekernes beskrivelse

      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 stays true to the myths in envisioning the major Norse pantheon: Odin, the highest of the high, wise, daring, and cunning; Thor, Odin's son, incredibly strong yet not the wisest of gods; and Loki-son of a giant-blood brother to Odin and a trickster and unsurpassable manipulator. Gaiman fashions these primeval stories into a novelistic arc that begins with the genesis of the legendary nine worlds and delves into the exploits of deities, dwarfs, and giants. Once, when Thor's hammer is stolen, Thor must disguise himself as a woman-difficult with his beard and huge appetite-to steal it back. More poignant is the tale in which the blood of Kvasir-the most sagacious of gods-is turned into a mead that infuses drinkers with poetry. The work culminates in Ragnarok, the twilight of the gods and rebirth of a new time and people. Through Gaiman's deft and witty prose emerge these gods with their fiercely competitive natures, their susceptibility to being duped and to duping others, and their tendency to let passion ignite their actions, making these long-ago myths breathe pungent life again.

  3. Anmeldelser
    • "Dette er ganske enkelt bare endnu en kedelig genfortælling af myterne som alle har hørt gang på gang. Intet nyt, ingen nye synspunkter og endnu en måde for den ellers talentfulde Gaiman at tjene lidt ekstra. Brød mig ikke om karakteristikken han havde givet guderne og jeg var ikke enig i de fleste af hans synspunkter."

    • "Bogen her er fyldt med historier, jeg genkender fra min barndom, men selvom det var rart nok at besøge disse historier igen, synes jeg, der manglede noget af magien, jeg husker, fra da jeg var lille. Jeg håber virkelig, at denne bog bliver oversat til dansk på et tidspunkt, for det ville have hjulpet en del, hvis navnene på personer og steder ikke havde været ændret og forvirret mig. "
