I love this book and I think it's a pity that he's not that famous as it should be!
After the first 40-50 pages I was completely inside the plot and I couldn't let the book go. This is the second time I read it, so I was a bit slower, but I equally enjoyed it.
The story has very few scenarios and all happens in a very short time, still it works very good and the characters show them self more and more on the reading.
I've always had a soft spot for Loki, and THIS Loki is brilliant, he made me laugh alone and won me with his trickery and charme :)
This character is simply alive, it's impossible not to love him!
Also other parts of the book are real fun, especially when all the gods and the folks are together in the last part.
I just hope that the sequel is as good as this one :)
LOVED IT!!!!! Liked that the protaganist was a bit of an outsider. Based on the norse myths.
Not at all convincing, but nonetheless pleasant.
It seems to me that, lately, wherever I turn I find Norse Gods; between Sandman, American Gods and this book I had my fair share of them.
The problem with this book is that, in spite of its lenght, it doesn't explain. Not enough, anyway. Things like the past of the Gods, what appened before, are just hinted at and nothing more.
And then... then some things just don't add up: how come Skadi knows Maddy is Thor's daughter when no one told her?
Why is Loki in the end just this brave and gruff character instead of the mean trickster without a moral?
And why no one realized sooner the Whisperer was the Nameless, when I guessed it hundreds of pages before the end?
