This was a very pleasant book!
I got to know a lot of these stories watching the Marvel movies, but it was fun nonetheless. Marvel didn't get everything to the point.. (probably for cinematic purposes)
Don't expect a fluent story where the gods are acting like heroes and such, but it's more like a collection of short stories, each ending with some kind of moral or trickery, if Loki is involved.
It seems almost a game of wits when the Gods venture up to something.
A promise between them is easily made, but as easily broken as well.
The more familiar character, such as Thor, Loki, Odin, Freya,.. are present in this book, but I got to know a few new names as well, with their interesting stories.
It's a novel filled with wonderful fables and I can recommend it to anyone who likes these tales of folklore.
