    "I was looking for a book on Germanic mythology and paganism a few weeks ago and then this popped up! Not only is it a fascinating universe the author thrusts you into, but it's a world you'll never want to leave. "

    "This book was an adventure like no other. I especially like the time period it took place in- when Christianity was rising across Europe and loyalty to the old gods was waving. I really think that if you like this book (you will) you should also read American Gods. "

    "A classic book detailing a story of Icelandic myth. The story itself is engrossing and has deep fantasy elements that should appeal to most anyone interested in the high fantasy genre. The translation given here is more than passable, and the illustrations bring to life this epic tale of wizards, warriors and thieves."

    "There could be good poetry in this book, but I don't find poetry to be interesting. l give it a 4 star rating because it didn't make me like poetry any more than before."

    "This book is about Germanic paganism in the sense that it's about Viking culture in the 10th century, which grew out of Germanic paganism. If that's a sufficient justification for you to try this book, it's likely to be interesting and entertaining. Told from the interesting perspective of a Muslim enveloped by Viking culture, Chrichton creates interesting juxtapositions that I don't think the reader would otherwise see or consider. That plus the fact that Vikings are always awesome makes this a fun read."

    "bASED ON the description of the book in summary it would be a good review about Germanic paganasim and since I see very few books on this topic I wioud rate it above middling and a tad higher as the sources for this are few. Hard to say best though"
