While most of Gaiman’s books revolve around magical realism in the modern world, this one stays true to the Norse Mythology of old. In an exciting narrative story, it tells of the adventures and misadventures of Norse gods, Odin, Thor, and Loki from their beginning all the way to Ragnarok- the apocalypse of Norse mythology. Not only are there gods and goddesses, but dwarves and giants as well. Full of deception, trickery, humor, and adventure- this is an enjoyable story from beginning to end. If you loved Rick Riordan, this novel is for you!
