Re: For those interested in Norse mythology.

This probably could have gone in one of the kindle threads, but I do like the Norse myths so thanks for the info.

The Gospel of Loki

"Chocolat" author Joanne M Harris has very recently brought out an ambitious tome "The Gospel of Loki" which is described thus:
"[...]first-person narrative of the rise and fall of the Norse gods - retold from the point of view of the world's ultimate trickster, Loki. It tells the story of Loki's recruitment from the underworld of Chaos, his many exploits on behalf of his one-eyed master, Odin, through to his eventual betrayal of the gods and the fall of Asgard itself."
Skimming through the reviews, this may be one of young adults and older adults who enjoy young adult books. So I would imagine that this rules in quite a few of us!

When I was told today about The Gospel of Loki I recognised the author's name through having read her first novel ("The Evil Seed") many moons ago. However, I was entirely unaware that she was the same person who'd later hit the biig time with "Chocolat" and its couple of sequels.

Looking through her bibliography, I note that this current interest in Norse gods is nothing new: she already has a couple of other novels under her belt in which the Norse gods exist, albeit diminished, in the modern day; "Runemarks" and "Runlelight". Again, these seemed to be pitched at the younger reader...
