    • Cuando Rick Riordan hace que el entrevistador oficial de los dioses y criaturas nórdicas sea Snorri Sturluson, sabes que un libro va a ser absolutamente épico. A ver, es que es graciosísimo ver cómo todos los dioses le toman el pelo a Snorri, que fue quien escribió la Edda más importante de la mitología nórdica, pues en ella está prácticamente toda su cosmogonía y en fin, que ya se me sale lo ñoña, jajaja. Estos libros compañeros de las sagas de Rick Riordan si bien no son esencial [...]


    • back again to this world information about the Norse Gods and GoddessMythical beings (Giants, Elves,Dwarves,)and the fantastic creatures(Fenris wolf, Otis and Marvin,)----reading this series will be easier because of this percious book!


    • A ver, este libro es lo que promete. Ni más ni menos. Una especie de "guía" para entender mejor el mundo de los dioses nórdicos (versión Rick Riordan, claro). Te hace pasar un rato agradable, reírte un poquito, y además tiene algunas ilustraciones muy bonitas. No sé, yo es que todo lo que escriba este hombre lo tengo que leer.


    • Does this really add much to the overall Magnus Chase/Norse world? Not particularly. But was it tons of fun? Heck yes. Can't wait to jump into the second book now!



    • As Loki himself would have said:With the release of The Hammer of Thor a few days away, it was nice to be able to revisit Magnus Chase's world without having to re-read the first book. I was a actually a bit concerned about this. Norse mythology is extremely vast and also a little "difficult". Consider Tanngnjostr, Ginnungagap and my personal favourite Hlidskjalf; which is what you get if you smack your head against your keyboard a few times. Not only are these impossible to pronounce, if I hadn [...]



    • Breezy guide to the Norse gods and major myths, as they pertain to the Magnus Chase series. The characteristics of the gods are fairly straightforward, but the myths are all referenced in things like interviews, instructional guides, and even some raps. Also a lullaby or two. Nonsense, unless you've read the first Magnus Chase book, but super fun if you have. Also, it's directly leading up to book 2, which I didn't realize (I have already read book 2), with sort of a running gag/ongoing series o [...]


    • This is a fun and quick read for those who need a quick introduction to Rick Riordan's Magnus Chase series. It's a solid guide to the Norse gods and their world with illustrations. It also explains the world tree Yggdrasil, and the nine worlds. The book is more for kids, as it's easy to understand and for those seeking some more sophisticated information about Norse gods should read Neil Gaiman's "Norse Mythology"For readers interested in Viking themed books and Norse Mythology,"City of Skies" i [...]


    • Fotoreseña: miotrarealidadetinta. Divertida pero sin ser demasiado aporte a la trilogía de la que es guía. Recomiendo leerla antes de El martillo de Thor porque muestra los indicios de lo que es la trama principal en el segundo libro :)


    • Héroes nórdicos es una guía para introducirte a los diferentes dioses, criaturas y razas de la mitología nórdica, todo ello narrado con el chispeante humor tan característico de Rick Riordan y con unos curiosos narradores. Deberían haber sacado esta guía antes del primer libro, porque en aquel entonces no tenía casi absolutamente ninguna idea de la mitología nórdica, salvo los dioses más conocidos. Ha sido instructiva, se conocen los dioses, sus atributos y de qué son deidad, cosa q [...]


    • This was fun!! I loved learning more about all the Norse mythology. It was cool seeing little hints towards the next book in the series too!!


    • Informative as a supplementary for Magnus Chase series, and slightly amusing but over all boring and even at a hundred or so pages felt too long. At times some needless information and backstories that I didn't much care about. Most importantly, just not laugh-out-loud funny enough like Riordan's similar "fun with mythology retellings" themed Percy Jackson's Greek Gods or contains any necessary side-stories like The Demigod Files or The Demigod Diaries that should've enriched the ongoing story a [...]


    • I was hoping for a factual, solid guide to Norse mythology for kids. This book is the opposite. It tries too hard to be humorous and as a result there is very little actual myth. As someone who is in the process of writing a Norse mythology book for children- A modern, simpler prose Edda- this is an example of something I do not wish to create. While, for the targeted age range, it is good to be simple, it is simple in a condescending manner. It focuses on some good aspects of Norse mythology, b [...]





    • Muy divertido e instructivo si no conoces de antemano nada de la Mtología Nórdica. Un poco extraño si no has leído nada de la Saga de MagnusChase XD!


    • Pronto reseña en: navegandoentrelibros/Más pilla que marcar una guía para el reto de GR jajajaja pero como siempre Rick se luce.Me hubiese gustado que la calidad de la edición que llegó a Chile fuera mejor, tapa blanda y sin solapas no!



    • Adoro Rick, leggerei tutto quello che scrive, lista della spesa compresa. XDAmmetto che mi aspettavo una guida scritta da Magnus, un po' come quelle che scrive Percy, però mi è piaciuta un sacco lo stesso. Alla fine passo sempre metà del tempo a ridere ed è questo quello che m'interessa veramente quando leggo questi extra di Rick.Secondo me le parti più divertenti sono le interviste di Snorri Sturluson e la gara di canto tra Freyr e Sumarbrander.Ho apprezzato moltissimo il capitolo dedicato [...]



    • I just have so many feelings, this was simply an amazing guide to Norse mythology, the knowledge will help me a lot when the other books come out."A Very Mean Ant Just Nibbled My Nose Hair"Asgard, Vanaheim, Midgard, Alfheim, Jotunheim, Nidavellir, Muspellheim, Niflheim, and Helheim. I'm pretty sure I'll never forget the Nine Realms ever again, Uncle Rick!!As for the picture, they were all very adorable(Thor was a hottie)!! Hel looked dangerous though, freaked me out.The rap between Jack the Swor [...]


    • 3.5/5*Heimdall is sangkakala, huh. Mystical creatures terbagi menjadi 3; notable, regrettable dan edible :D waduh ogah kalo termasuk bisa dimakan. Not bad. Karena tidak terbiasa dengan Odin dkk, baca buku ini tidak secepat kalo baca tentang dewa dewi Yunani yg sudah familiar. Nama-nama dewanya sulit diucapkan. Untungnya buku ini tipis jadi bacanya enggak lama-lama.



    • Este libro es una guía para los recién llegados al Hotel Valhalla y para nosotros los simples mortales aficionados a los mundos creados por Rick Riordan Mi calificación no es más ya que siento que podían dar un poco más, pero la forma en la que esta relatado es ameno y divertido. Aunque es poca la información llegamos a conocer un poco más sobre los Dioses nórdicos, los nueve mundos, las criaturas míticas. Todo lo relacionado al mundo de Magnus Clase.He de ser honesta hasta el momento [...]


    • There's fun and funny bits, but it isn't quite as informative as I'd hoped, and it doesn't have quite as much new content as I've come to expect from these side books. Really only useful if you have absolutely no previous knowledge of Norse mythology, which I guess would probably be a fairly sizeable portion of the actual target audience.



    • Divertida, ingeniosa y muy educativa, esta guía de dioses e historias es perfecta para los amantes de la mitología nórdica y los fans de Magnus Chase :)


    • Es estúpido. Es divertido. Es realmente apegado a la mitología. Este libro lo encontré buscando el de Nordic Mythology de Neil Gaiman no sabía que existía esta serie del tipo Percy Jackson pero con dioses y personajes de la mitología nórdica. Me gustó tanto que ahora voy a leer esa serie. 4.4/5
