Review: Gods and Myths of Northern Europe

User Review  - Rhonda - Goodreads

Very informative on the Gods and Myths of Northern Europe but very dry writing. I barely got started and couldn't stay interested enough to even finish. I am not sure how to rate it- for me, the writing style and dryness made the book a difficult boring read but the information was all there. Read full review

User Review  - Maryann - Goodreads

I admittedly knew very little of Norse mythology, so when I found this book in the school library, I decided to read it. It has taken me a while to read, but I enjoyed it, particularly learning about things that were new to me. Read full review
