So many people are into Game of Thrones, or Vikings. All of this mythology is interesting, and makes for great characters and storylines. (It doesn’t hurt that the casting of these series is pretty amazing.)
But if you’re like a lot of people, these shows/books have also made you wonder about the mythology behind the stories. Best-selling author Neil Gaiman was one of those people, and while he writes many stories that are based on historical or mythical ideas, this time, he is sticking with the facts in NORSE MYTHOLOGY by Neil Gaiman.
The really funny thing is, Gaiman got a lot of flack from readers when this first came out because they said he was just “rehashing” the myths. Um…..yes, that’s the point, right? Apparently, not everyone understood that. But regardless of whether you know about Norse Mythology or not, Gaiman’s writing style is bound to bring these stories to life in a way that they’ve never been told before.
So why not brush up on some of that mythology this week. You’ll be able to dazzle people over coffee soon enough!
