Gospel of Loki
Gospel of Loki | Joanne Harris
With his notorious reputation for trickery and deception, and an ability to cause as many problems as he solves, Loki is a Norse god like no other. Demon-born, he is viewed with deepest suspicion by his fellow gods, who will never accept him as one of their own and for this he vows to take revenge. While Loki is planning the downfall of Asgard and the humiliation of his tormentors, greater powers are conspiring against the gods and a battle is brewing that will change the fate of the worlds.

I love Norse mythology, especially Loki, but this book just didn‘t hit the mark.

I liked to see things from Lokis perspective, that was fun, but overall it didn't captivate me as much as I thought it would since I like Loki so much.
I recommend reading Norse myths before reading this book because it has a lot of references but it doesn't tell them fully so it's way better if you understand the full picture the book is trying to paint.
My Norse Myths recommendation would be "Norse Mythology by Neil Gaiman, it's an amazing book.

Second time reading through and annotating this book and I still love it with all my heart especially with my - very much alive - fascination with Good Omens. Very much reminded me of Neil Gaimans works and I couldent have asked for more. Admittedly I got a little tired and slowed my reading once Ragnarok began, which I thought was curious since it's literally the end of the world's. Or at least one of the ends. Will forever love our trickster.

A fun and likeable read, it's a more 'immature' and comedic take on Loki's experience through Norse mythology tales, does a good job of getting some chuckles from you and potentially sympathising with Loki's (probably bias) view on things.

I liked this take on Norse Mythology narrated by Loki, but I didn‘t love it.
It was interesting to hear the stories from his point of view, though most of my knowledge of Norse myths come from marvel (which obviously isn‘t super accurate) and Krampus 🤣

This was my pick for #AmongTheGods and was also my #BookSpin book :)

I liked this but it's a low pick. Maybe I would have loved it more if I had done a refresher or Norse mythology to get all the in jokes. There was definitely a layer of humor woven in but it was never laugh out loud funny like I was hoping for. This was one of my #CalibreRoulette picks.

This was a fun read! Thanks @Velvetfur for including this in the #MythsandLegendsSwap🤩🤩

Loki‘s portrayed as snarky, sarcastic and surprisingly human. I had the Avengers‘ Loki in mind from the start; the author was either inspired by him too, or simply created a very similar image of him, cause they really fit.

👇🏼👇🏼👇🏼

LittleBug Unfortunately, I‘m not very familiar with Norse mythology, so I may have missed some puns. Will be on the lookout for a book on the subject and will then maybe do a reread... Any recommendations? 3y

I was really excited about this—I think it suffered partly from sitting on my TBR too long, but also I wanted more out of it. Loki was too straightforward for me—I expected an unreliable narrator, but it‘s framed more as a justification for his actions. It was interesting to see his exclusion by the gods & underlying need to be accepted. Almost sympathetic, but not quite—that‘s where I needed more. Still fun, though—I may pick up the sequel.

If you like your Norse gods sounding like petulant rejects from the Twilight series, here you go. Otherwise, I preferred Gaiman's Norse Mythology. I was tired of Loki's catchphrase "so shoot me" well before halfway.

Meh. This isn't terrible, I just couldn't get into it. It's very similar to Gaiman's Norse Mythology, so I felt more like I was rereading. If you're really into the Norse gods then you will probably enjoy this.

Woo! I‘m done. This book was fun and Loki was so emo but it had only two notes and I wanted the trickster to be a bit more varied and interesting. Basically a retelling, or a basic retelling. Listening to the audiobook probably helped as the reader really sold the characterization.@DuckOfDoom you were right about the yours truly and humble narrator bits. #sfftbrchallenge and #12intwo @Samplergal

Samplergal Great job! 4y

Joanne Harris' The Gospel of Loki actually came out before Neil Gaiman's Norse Mythology. They are both good, including many of the same myths. As much as I like Neil, I actually enjoyed Joanne's treatment more, with Loki serving as the narrator, and all stories from his point of view. I loved the asides and commentary from him. Of course I imagine him as Tom Hiddleston now lol!
