Written by Neil Gaiman, Norse Gods is a retelling of the Norse mythologies (I think most of the ones that have survived) read by Mr. Gaiman himself.

Gaiman has a wonderful voice for story telling, and is very pleasant to listen to, and I enjoyed his retellings. They still stuck close to the original, but some of the language was a bit more up-to-date, and the followed through to Ragnarok.

There are very few Norse tales that survived through Christianity. With that being said, the organization of these tales is lovely and provides an excellent understanding of who the Norse gods are and their stories. I highly recommend this to anyone who is a fan of the Marvel universe just to see where the basis for Thor and Loki come from.

(Here is a hint: they aren’t brothers and Loki is supposed to be extremely good looking and blond.)
