This is a story about you. It is the history of who you are and how you came to be. It is unique to you, as it is for every one of the 100 billion modern humans who has ever drawn breath. But it is also our collective story, because in each of our genomes we carry the history of the whole of our species.

The book and narration held my attention from beginning to end. The presentation of some very complex scientific facts was perfectly articulated.

The great Norse myths are woven into the fabric of our storytelling - from Tolkien, Alan Garner and Rosemary Sutcliff to Game of Thrones and Marvel Comics. They are also an inspiration for Neil Gaiman's own award-bedecked, best-selling fiction. Now he reaches back through time to the original source stories in a thrilling and vivid rendition of the great Norse tales.

What you expect from Neil Gaiman; engaging and beguiling. The myths provide a great insight into Norse culture. Only disappointment is that the myths pale in comparison to Neil's other stories and I was expecting the same level of beauty.
