Shelves: mythology
I was very delighted when I found some Viking stories from my Library's shelf. The writer had very skillfully bound the myths into her writing but characters were quite one dimensioned and the protagonist in the book, Idun, suffered from a disturbingly hard inferiority complex, as I peeked into the #3 novel, I noticed the same thing continues there, so I did not even start the next book. Also the writing quality of the sex scenes were quite sloppy and there were loads of them in this book, almos ...more

Pros and cons

+ Idun
+ Tor
+ I was actually surprised over and over again how there seemed to be only tragedy for Idun, I was expecting at least some peaceful living before she died.
+ Some other interesting character descriptions
+ Honestly painful and hopeless moments

- The sex. Irrelevant.
- ...Let alone how many characters couldn't seem to think about anything else.
- Left a feeling that nothing really happened.
- ...Or at least that the story could have been told in twenty pages inst
Looking at the title you might mistakenly think this book is about Idun, Freya's and Thor's daughter. It isn't. Idun never gets a chance to grow into a whole character, she's reduced into a plot point in her parents tale as are other characters too.

That shouldn't be a problem, because I loved Freya, but years have changed her into something unrecognisable. I guess the power and might of the Moon goddess, and personal sacrifices can do that to a woman, but this tragedy too is downplayed into lun

Ensimmäinen kirja (Freija) oli vauhdilla luettu mutta tämän kanssa mateli. Tuntui, että välillä jumitettiin jossain asiassa pitkään ja jotkin kohdat taas käsiteltiin todella nopeasti. Ensin pohjustetaan monta (sataa) sivua ja sitten töks, kaikki tapahtuu yhdellä sivulla helposti. Myös tarpeettomat seksikuvaukset ärsyttivät, eri asia jos ne veisivät tarinaa eteenpäin mutta pelkkänä sivuntäytteenä täysin turhaa. Juonellisesti myös kiersi kehää ja samoja ongelmia pyöriteltiin jatkuvasti.

Neljäsataa sivua seksiä, väkivaltaa ja ärsyttäviä henkilöhahmoja. Edellisessä osassa kiinnostanut kulttuurin kuvaus liiaksi taka-alalla. Ihan viihdyttävä.
