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.

Written simply and sweetly. The stories are kept short and are easy to understand. It makes tales from the long-winded Norse mythology much more fun!

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.

this was kind of an abridged version for kids i think. the stories were alright, but not overpoweringly awesome or anything.
