Book #21

Odd and the Frost Giants by by Neil Gaiman (Goodreads Author), Mark Buckingham (Illustrator)

A kid’s book, but a fun read. I found it witty enough and a nice nod to Norse mythology in its tone. From what I know about Norse mythology, which admittedly isn’t much currently.

I do know one thing: Loki *always* steals the show.

Not sure if the Kindle version (read via the Cloud app) did justice to the illustrations.

Gaiman’s next five books were announced last week and an Odd sequel was among them. It’s nice to know there’s some enchanting children’s fiction in existence and in the works. Now, if I could just find more adult versions…

Format: Kindle Cloud
Procurement: Greater Phoenix Digital Library

  1. OOOOOhhhh. I just got a copy of this book and I can’t WAIT to read it. Unfortunately, there are a couple in the MUST READ SOONEST stack that are ahead of it.
