Dost thou like mythology? If thou dost so, then thou would like this book. Telled in a easy way, with a correct use of the vocabulary and an easy reading type , thou would enjoy learning about how Vikings and Norses saw the world and imagined how it worked. This book also gives thee the posibility of understand better the metaphors made about Odin, Loki, Thor, the Mjllonir, Vegtam, etc. Thou will face giants (Jötunheim) and dwarves (Svatherheim), fire (Muspelheim) and frost (Nifleheim), Gods (Asgard) and mortals (Midgard), and you would met Odin, Loki, Thor, Iduna, Tyr, Baldur, Hödur, and more Gods (Aesir) and Goddesses (Asyniur). It´s fun find some word roots: For example, Hell comes fro Hela, the queen of the deads. Also Gelid, becaus Hela lives in Nifleheim, the eternal ice and cold land. Dost thou have a knowledge in some archaic English? Well, this is thy opportunity to learn something. This book will teach thee some archaic words that can be useful to know. WELL, WHAT ARE THOU WAITING FOR? GO ON, ODIN WAITS YOU IN THE VALHALLA.

This book is very easy to read and I had fun reading the stories from the beginning to the end. Even if you do not have much knowledge of Norse myths, you will find it easy to follow. The whole book is composed of stories.
