    Has the Norse mythology had any effect on us? Check your calendar. The Norse gods gave their names to Tuesday (Tyr), Wednesday (Woden/Odin), Thursday (Thor) and Friday (Frigga.) Have their myths impacted popular stories? How about Tolkien? C.S. Lewis. Marvel's Thor (comics and movies) and the Ragnarok movie. The Norse had their own creation story. They also had references to Giants which other myths also talk about. Myths seem to be based on some kind of factual thing (given a twist to suit the Has the Norse mythology had any effect on us?

Myths seem to be based on some kind of factual thing (given a twist to suit the culture of the time, of course) and indicates that there just might have been human giants at one time. Their stories can vary. Even the names of the gods and goddesses can vary. Even with that their mythos is interesting, addressing a group of people that lived under rather difficult conditions.

    Good start to newcomers into the Norse mythology. Matt pulled info from several different sources to bring us this good intro to Norse mythology. Not only did he fill in some gaps with his perspective of how subjects felt or their intentions but he also tells us where to go to get more info. Thank you Matt for this excellent read. I really enjoyed the last story, you all will have to get it to read it.

    Fast, solid, really useful I needed a quick source of Norse mythology and to be honest, this book was cheap. What I found was a very readable text that held my interest through a fast review and gave me all the myths in a simple, no frills way. I got what I needed without wasting time, energy, money, or even sleep because it was so easy to read and remember. Very nice.

    Just a taste, as usual, but enough to prompt looking for the recipe! I love these series books, and this is interesting and cause to dig further for information and the bigger picture! My first Norse reading, but definitely not my last!

    A great introduction to Norse Mythology. I knew nothing about Norse Mythology. This seems like a great start for learning about Norse Mythology. I admit I was a bit confused, maybe it was because the names were so foreign to me and some of them seemed quite similar to one another.

    I really liked this re-telling. Prior to this, I had read Neil Gaiman's version, which read more like a novel while this read more like an anthology. Many of the stories were similar, but there were a few I hadn't seen before which made me like it a good deal more than I thought. I really liked this re-telling.
