32/100 Norse Mythology by Neil Gaiman

This audio book was a very interesting interpretation of the Norse Mythos.  Gaiman is a very talented author and it was amazing to hear about a subject that fascinated him from his own perspective.  The Norse Mythos are indeed one of the less popular/widely known mythos.  They tend to be greatly interpreted by the Marvel Comics from which we find Thor in modern times.  These are not always true to the original myths, in fact they are greatly changed and often misrepresent individuals within the myths.  I enjoyed listening to the retelling of the myths from Gaiman’s perspective and hope that either he continues this trend, or that other authors take up the mythology banner.
