Better Off Read GR Book Club Discusses "Norse Mythology" by Neil Gaiman

Are you a 20 or 30 something looking for a book club and literate new friends? Better Off Read GR is a book club aimed at connecting people over their mutual love for books and reading. This club is intended for people in their 20s and 30s, but all are welcome. Better Off Read GR hosts at least one event per month; check out our upcoming events on our website. This month we will discuss "Norse Mythology" by Neil Gaiman.

In Norse Mythology, Gaiman fashions primeval stories into a novelistic arc that begins with the genesis of the legendary nine worlds; delves into the exploits of the deities, dwarves, and giants; and culminates in Ragnarok, the twilight of the gods and the rebirth of a new time and people. Gaiman stays true to the myths while vividly reincarnating Odin, the highest of the high, wise, daring, and cunning; Thor, Odin’s son, incredibly strong yet not the wisest of gods; and Loki, the son of giants, a trickster and unsurpassable manipulator. From Gaiman’s deft and witty prose emerges the gods with their fiercely competitive natures, their susceptibility to being duped and to dupe others, and their tendency to let passion ignite their actions, making these long-ago myths breathe pungent life again.
