Read on June 30, 2012

This book only took me about an hour to read (which means it would take a normal person ~30 minutes), and because of that, there is absolutely no excuse for anyone in the history of ever to avoid giving this book a shot.

After recently reading Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone for the first time, I decided that children's books may just be awesome, even if you're an old man like me. (I'm pretty sure I'm like 85, despite what my birth certificate might indicate.) And I figured that if children's books can be good, then Gaiman's would probably be the best of the lot, because he's Neil Freakin' Gaiman.

As such, I waltzed into the juvenile section of my library (like a total creeper), picked up a book about a young boy's Norse-mythological journey and devoured it in one sitting. In proper Gaiman fashion, it was perfection: funny, magical, engaging, and all the other stuff that makes a book good.

If you like Norse mythology (or even if you don't), give it a read. It'll only take you half an hour--what're you waiting for?!
