It's a Gaiman fairytale, about a wonderful boy among the vikings and their gods, and that's all you need to know. ( )

I highly recommend the illustrated edition, as Riddell's work adds a lot of depth to Gaiman's story. This is a great tale about a boy with a limp who finds himself facing a giant at Asgard to help out Thor, Loki and Odin. Odd is likable and Gaiman achieves a lot of depth in a short amount of pages. If you're a fan of either Gaiman or Riddell, you should pick this up! ( )

Charming. And credit to Adam Stower for the pictures which are an important part of the charm. ( )

As always, when Neil Gaiman reads the audiobooks for his novels, I adore them. This was especially good. He did all the voices for Thor, Loki, Odin, and the frost giants, and it just makes it such an enjoyable read (or, uh, listen). Definitely recommend this one for someone who's looking for a shorter but still fun and entertaining read.

Ultimamente sto scegliendo parecchie letture più infantili (per errore), ma è bello vedere che ci sono ottimi libri anche per i più giovani.
Gaiman è stato abilissimo anche in questo caso con la sua breve storia di un ragazzo vichingo che avrà a che fare addirittura con gli dei nordici.
Ero abituata a toni più cupi e inquietanti, ma l'atmosfera a tratti divertente, nostalgica e avventurosa è resa in modo molto efficace.
La morale è che non è sempre il più forte a vincere, perché spesso anche il più indifeso con un po' di furbizia riesce ad ottenere dei risultati. Un altro tema che viene trattato in maniera meno evidente è quello della famiglia.
Resta comunque una lettura molto carina. ( )

Det är en liten medryckande saga om mod, mognad och försoning med sin livslott. Hur otroligt det än kan verka, när man står på botten av ett köldhål, visar Neil Gaiman att även den strängaste vargavinter har ett slut.
