  1. I was really hoping to like this book a lot better It revolved around a loser named Gid, who is Special By the middle I think of the book, he s got Odin deferring to him, he s doling out commands to the Aesir, he s beaten up Thor, had sex with Freya and the three sisters are calling him a Hero With A Capital H This guy figures out everything before other people do, formulates brilliant military strategies all revolving around a pincer formation and beats frost giants with their own w I was really hoping to like this book a lot better It revolved around a loser named Gid, who is Special By the middle I think of the book, he s got Odin deferring to him, he s doling out commands to the Aesir, he s beaten up Thor, had sex with Freya and the three sisters are calling him a Hero With A Capital H This guy figures out everything before other people do, formulates brilliant military strategies all revolving around a pincer formation and beats frost giants with their own weapons It just didn t add up The main character is a loser Total loser He beat the crap out of a guy, apparently for not liking the look of him He can t hold down a job cos he s a fighter That s what he does, and he can t do anything else The little bit that really rubbed me the wrong way was when the three oracles showed him the film of his life In a way, it seemed to shift the blame for his fucked up life to everyone else in his surroundings, and absolving him of responsibility because, well, he s a Hero I reall...

  3. I bought this book as liked the idea behind it, and it did seem to have a lot of good reviews, all about a down on his luck, out of work, injured ex soldier stumbling into finding and joining the Norse gods battle a war With Odin and Thor etc all in the mix, so I thought yeah, this should be good.Then disappointment sets in almost straight away The main character Gid I can t stand Too much of a Lad with his drinking, fighting, letching and constant swearing A conversation early on with hi I bought this book as liked the idea behind it, and it did seem to have a lot of good reviews, all about a down on his luck, out of work, injured ex soldier stumbling into finding and joining the Norse gods battle a war With Odin and Thor etc all in the mix, so I thought yeah, this should be good.Then disappointment sets in almost straight away The main character Gid I can t stand Too much of a Lad with his drinking, fighting, letching and constant swearing A conversation early on with his friend is littered with, I felt, unnecessary swearing Don t believe I m too sensitive, but it put me right off.Then this out of work, already injured and to b...

  4. Probably the best quotation from a book I have read in a long time and on the topic of God no less Gid asks Odin what the capital G God is like To which Odin replies, I don t believe in Him, and if He does exist, I don t like Him His type of gods aren t gods who echo how mortals behave They re gods who are held up as example of perfection to be emulated They re not gods of the people They re remote and inaccessible, they demand blind, unthinking obedience from their followers They r Probably the best quotation from a book I have read in a long time an...

  5. This one I couldn t finish It started strong with vivid imagery and a distinct protagonist s voice But then it didn t go anywhere The character doesn t develop and neither does the plot it just wanders around waiting, literally, for Ragnarok to happen It takes the protagonistthan half the book simply to accept the reality he s been handed, which might be realistic, but it s not entertaining and it doesn t move the plot forward enough That s not enough conflict to keep me interested This one I couldn t finish It started strong with vivid imagery and a distinct protagonist s voice But then it didn t go anywhere...

  7. still pulling aces from up the sleeve.So I finally finished reading this book, the author did a great job keeping me on edge until the last page I never saw what was coming and it was perfectly amazing The descriptions used were so vivid I could see the different places and characters as if they were standing in front of me, the narration of all actions was almost painfully perfect, you ll know what I mean by painfully when you reach 97...

  8. Honestly, I don t think I can say I read this book as I wasn t even able to get past the first chapter What I read convinced me that the author wasinterested in using profanity and colorful alliteration rather than doing any real story telling So glad that I only c...

  10. Wow Just wow.I d read Lovegrove s The Age of Ra not too long ago, and had enjoyed aspects of his storytelling enough that I decided to pick up this book Where I enjoyed The Age of Ra, The Age of Odin was by far a better book in pretty much all aspects and has left me feeling oddly exhilarated, empowered, and interestin...
