This was a simply amazing read. This is the way myths were meant to be presented, as tales of action and adventure, full of symbolic meanings. The book retells all of Norse mythology in a logical, easy-to-comprehend manner. One myth flows into another, tied together by cause and effect. I haven't been this impressed with a book on Norse mythology since reading Kevin Crossley-Holland's The Norse Myths back in the 1980s. It again restores the sense of wonder, absent from so many texts on the ancient tales. This presentation is thoughtful, and thought-provoking. No surprise, since Rydberg was a poet and storyteller himself. I had heard of Mr. Rydberg on the web, but nothing compares to reading his work first-hand. I'm glad someone has finally made this available in English at a reasonable price.
