Sabaton - Twilight of the Thunder God

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.

Some of the Norse stories in one collection is a good read for fans of mythology.

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 really the same as the last book I read - In the Time of Giants - with just another story or 3 added. Still worth a read, but not anything groundbreaking. This one still felt like it was written for middle school kids.

very old copy from 1902

want to read this primarily for the illustrations by george wright

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!

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

An interesting collection of short stories taken from the Norse mythology and written in a way that suits both children and grown ups.

This book has stories about Odin, Thor, Freya, etc. If you liked the movie THOR, you would like these stories. It is a very quick read.

Good stories but the plates are not that nice in here.

3.5 stars for this very nice collection of myths translated from the Eddas.Here is the problem too. This book was originally published quite a while ago (so long you can see ways of writing that are no longer being used). This is not necessarily a bad thing, but I feel like the translation could have been done better.The constant feeling that it would have been epic to read all these stories in Norwegian made the rating lower with half a star.And now I want to learn Norwegian even more than I al [...]
