  • 摘要: Neil Gaiman has long been inspired by ancient mythology increating the fantastical realms of his fiction. Now he presents his fashioning of the primeval Norse myths into anovel, which begins with the genesis of the legendary nineworlds, 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 recreating the characters--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--and making these long-ago myths breathe pungent life again.--
