Neil Gaiman takes listeners on a wild and magical trip to the land of giants and gods and back. In a village in ancient Norway lives a boy named Odd, and he's had some very bad luck: His father perished in a Viking expedition; a tree fell on and shattered his leg; the endless freezing winter is making villagers dangerously grumpy. Out in the forest Odd encounters a bear, a fox, and an eagle-three creatures with a strange story to tell. Now Odd is forced on a journey to save Asgard, city of the gods, from the Frost Giants who have invaded it. It's going to take a very special kind of twelve-year-old boy to outwit the Frost Giants, restore peace to the city of gods, and end the long winter. Someone cheerful and infuriating and clever. . . . Someone just like Odd. . . .

Wonderful, warm book, great narrating. Somebody wrote simplistic...I wonder what that person created recently...or at all...

His voice is so wonderful to listen to. It's mesmerizing, comforting, and wonderous all at once. My kids love him.

This is one of two Gaiman stories that did disappoint me--too simplistic. But Gaiman, as usual, reads it well.

I still love to read children's books. This book, by one of my favorite authors, reads like a folktale and, for me, did not disappoint. I specifically chose the audio version because it was read by Neil Gaiman himself, who has a wonderful voice for storytelling.
