Norse Mythology

Recommendation inspired by:
The myth of Thor's journey to the land of giants - Scott A. Mellor

Why we love this book:

I wish I could send this book back in time to my 12-year-old, mythology-obsessed self (to be fair, present-day me loved it too). Neil Gaiman brings the Norse pantheon to life with his signature, masterful storytelling style while staying true to the source material. The gods in these stories occupy a murky moral space and have some pretty zany adventures, so it’s a joy to go along for the ride.
