Waterstones Says

Combining Neil Gaiman's unique storytelling skills with the stunning artwork of Levi Pinfold, this fully illustrated edition of Norse Mythology is a feast for both the eyes and the mind.

Multi-award-winning, globally bestselling author Neil Gaiman’s riveting retellings of the classic Norse myths, now reinvented with epic, full-colour illustrations by Levi Pinfold. A gift from the gods of story.

Ancient myths burst into thrilling, visceral life in Neil Gaiman’s irresistible Norse Mythology, already a modern classic and a massive bestseller around the world. In this brand-new edition, Levi Pinfold brings his own spectacular illustrative imagination to the world of gods, frost giants, magic and betrayal, uniting two awesome talents in one glorious book.

From the dawn of the world to the twilight of the gods, this is the most dazzling journey through the Norse myths, with Odin the all-father and his mighty son Thor, whose hammer Mjollnir makes the mountain giants tremble, and Loki, wily and handsome, impossible to trust. Containing the full text of the original book and a feast of colour art, it’s perfect for readers of any age – as ancient as the mountains or as young as Loki’s many offspring.

MEDIA REVIEWS

It’s virtually impossible to read more than ten words by Neil Gaiman and not wish he would tell you the rest of the story … The halls of Valhalla have been crying out for Gaiman to tell their stories to a new audience. Hopefully this collection will be just the beginning - Natalie Haynes, Observer

There have been countless retellings of the Norse myths, but few that give them the everyday immediacy of Neil Gaiman’s wry, punchy phrasing and delivery. You feel that bumbling Thor, wise Odin, fabulous Freya and the wily Loki are part of him - The Times

Gaiman retells the Norse sagas in his own lucid, laid-back style, teasing out the humour and absurdity inherent in the source material … An honest retelling that betrays an abiding personal passion for the exploits of dim-witted Thor, mercurial Loki, bombastic Odin and the rest - Financial Times

It’s the perfect moment to become acquainted with Gaiman’s eerie, fantastical writing. In his latest book, he recasts the Nordic sagas as gripping human dramas, putting flesh and blood on the slippery Loki, the hard-charging Odin and others - Irish Independent

Luxuriantly illustrated by the fabulous Levi Pinfold - Observer, the New Review, on THE WORLDS WE LEAVE BEHIND
