“Tales of Norse Mythology” By Hélène A. Guerber Review

Scandinavians of the Viking Age explored the mysteries of life through their sagas. Folklorist Helene Adeline Guerber brings to life the gods and goddesses, giants and dwarves, and warriors and monsters of these stories in Tales of Norse Mythology. Ranging from the comic to the tragic, these leghends tell of passion, love, friendship, pride, courage, strength, loyalty, and betrayal.

This book have fucked up couple of names when it comes to the norse mythology, I know this since Ive been interested in the norse mythology for years now and I’ve read a lot about it by now. 

You have to know that if you want to get into norse mythology then this book isn’t the choice here. Of course this book has these amazing stories from the norse mythology but this book is very dry and it might make you hate norse mythology before you give it a good shot. 

To be full honest with you this book doesn’t tell us the stories of the norse mythology but rather just reports them to us which really made be so uninterested at times and so bored of this book. 

However this book needs to get points for giving us a good idea about the personality and the look of the major gods and goddesses in the the norse mythology which I really liked.

The writing style here was very okay for the most part but to be fully honest here with you the writing style in this book was a roller coster ride because it had many good moments but it also had many bad moments. 

For the most part this book had a very simplistic overview of the gods which really annoyed me at times. 

I Give This Book 3 / 5
