I'm sort of on a mini-Neil Gaiman marathon during this readathon, and have 4 of his books lined up, 2 of which I've now read.
I loved Odd and the Frost Giants by Neil Gaiman. I've grown up hearing and reading about the Norse Mythology (particular the books by Lars Henrik-Olsen and the Danish comics Valhalla have shaped how I perceive and think about the Norse Gods) and Gaiman nails it. Odd is such a clever little character and the story very much reads like the old sagas.
