Publisher's Summary

Thor. Does it ring a bell? Thor is the mighty God of thunder and protector of Asgard. For Marvel fans, this name is obviously representing something big. For some, however, it’s still quite intriguing. How did the story of the mighty Thor, Asgard, Odin, and Loki start?

They all come from one of the ancient myths that shaped the modern world: Norse mythology. Isn’t it nice to learn one of the great ancient mythologies to date? If this is indeed your first foray into the subject of Norse mythology, you will find that it calls for an adjustment in the way you see things.

You will need to prepare yourself for a very different world - one where there is often no logic as you understand it, no justice as administered by a modern court of law, and very little point in asking “why”.

Norse mythology contains various legends and myths. Most of these have to do with ancient gods and heroes, but are also connected to the creation and destruction of the universe. This book will be your starting point of diving into the world of greatness!

This audiobook covers the following topics:

  • The Nine Realms
  • The Beginning
  • Norse Gods and Goddesses
  • The Mead of Poetry
  • Norse Mythology Beliefs and Concepts
  • Loki The Theif
  • The Norse Rituals
  • Creatures of The Norse Mythology
  • Ragnar Lothbrok and his sons
  • Vikings At War
  • And much more... 

Norse mythology has its own unique features; it was often used to frighten children, just as different myths have frightened people through the ages. Norse myth has served as an inspiration to many people interested in fantasy for a number of reasons. The Gods are compelling, as are their stories. This alone provides many with a source of inspiration.

Amazing stories from an amazing storyteller

I loved this. Olivier Charlas is such a fantastic narrator, he really captured the different personalities being portrayed in these stories. And the stories themselves were great - cannot recommend this enough.

This was an amazing recount of the Norse Pantheon

The story is amazing. I enjoyed how well researched it seemed to be. plus when an author reads their own work you tend to get just a mediocre performance but insight to the author's words. in this case Gaiman was the only person who could have brought these myths to a 3D listening experience. Absolutely love this book and performance. I will be listening to it many more times.

Classic of Norse mythology!

Still the most enjoyable book of Norse mythology, even if it isn't 100% authentic. Who cares anyway, they're just stories, and I'm not trying to speak a scholarly paper on the meaning of Thor's hammer. Arrived fast, great condition, i need to get a few more copies for nephews and nieces who always seem to get interested in mythology.

Interesting!

It gives you a very interesting glimpse into Norse Mythology by providing a story, instead of several different accounts with different gods. This travels in a single line from the birth of the tree of life to the Ragnarok.

A good listen by one of the younger Inkling writers. Listening this book gives good insight into Tolkien's influences in the lord of the rings.
