The great Norse myths are woven into the fabric of our storytelling - from Tolkien, Alan Garner and Rosemary Sutcliff to Game of Thrones and Marvel Comics. They are also an inspiration for Neil Gaiman's own award-bedecked, best-selling fiction. Now he reaches back through time to the original source stories in a thrilling and vivid rendition of the great Norse tales.

As a Gaiman fan, I would have downloaded any of his audiobooks. But this particular one caught my attention because I was curious to hear his version of Norse mythology. Gaiman brings to life all the heroic characters spicing their stories with humour, witty one-liners and soul. Thoroughly loved it.

With his characteristic eyebrow-raising behavior, Richard P. Feynman once provoked the wife of a Princeton dean to remark, "Surely you're joking, Mr. Feynman!" But the many scientific and personal achievements of this Nobel Prize-winning physicist are no laughing matter. Here, woven with his scintillating views on modern science, Feynman relates the defining moments of his accomplished life.

series of disjointed episodes about a very interesting person. this audiobook is a light read but I really loved the narrator's performance. this really made it worth the purchase. he brought the character of Richard Feynman to life for me.
