Read in September, 2011

"There were gaps in their shield wall and a couple of spears pointed at the moon. They would have been better advised to direct their tips to the invaders, because the moon wasn’t going to cut off their heads."
The only other work I've read recently dealing with Vikings was Harry Harrison's very enjoyable trilogy. I read a very favourable review of this, and the quote from ALEKSANDR SOLZHENITSYN prefacing the book gave me reason to carry on.

I enjoyed it as a story, but I think my enjoyment was limited. Far too much myth and magic and not enough atmosphere, I think.

"Come back, you cowards!" he screamed. "I am one and you are twenty. Are the odds not enough in your favour?"

Characterisation wasn't too bad, but Vali's transformation utterly Dehumanised him. Intentionally or no, that bled through in the language, too. I'm glad I read it, but probably won't read anything else by this author unless it's on a widely different subject.
