Really great! A nice selection of stories from the Eddas written in contemporary language. It also includes some wonderful reflections on Norse mythology's place amongst other pantheons' mythologies.

I loved this book, an easy and fun read.
Andrew
The book is quite simple and feels like it was written for kids, but it's a good one to get a general knowledge about Norse mythology.
Alex
this was kind of an abridged version for kids i think. the stories were alright, but not overpoweringly awesome or anything.
Eva
Not good as an introduction to the topic!
