    1. The is a revised update of an early Everyman edition of Snorri s Heimskringla that was originally translated by Samuel Laing in the 1840s The revisions are done by Jacqueline Simpson and Peter Foote, who for some strange reason revise the prose texts and supply new introductions but leave Samuel Laing s strange verse adaptions of Scaldic Poetry untouched, which in my opinion would have benefited from from a complete rewrite.This huge compilation of Norse Kings Sagas is made up of sixteen sagas t [...]

    2. First of all, let me say that I can t imagine reading this on a Kindle It s 800 pages long and, if you re looking for action, boring But it is a wonderful example of Scandinavian medieval literature If you can get into the rhythm of it, the translator has done an excellent job of making it easy to read Because it is medieval, it s hard sometimes to keep track of who is who The author assumes you know or remember from previously who so and so is Also there are little stories put in the middle of [...]

    3. Really interesting and a really valuable link to the past, but my eyelids hung heavy and often and getting through this was of a chore than a pleasure I wouldn t attempt this if you are new to the saga s if only for it s sheer size Start with The Vinland Sagas It s much intruiging, with less focus on the kings, and on commoner s of the highly entertaining kind lives and voyages, and it s a one sitting kind of saga whereas the Heimskringla will soon become a new appendage.

    4. I got a copy of this book as I have a huge interest in the Viking era And to that end, this is a great work to add to my library On reflection, I maybe should have dipped into it in between other books, rather than read through it in one go After a few chapters, it all started to become a little bit familiar and stodgy one king harried here and there, married, and then died then the next king harried here and there, married, and then died I do not think this is a book for general readership per [...]

    5. Ignore the rather suspect black gothic text against a red background this is an interesting book.So far, the first bit, The Saga of the Ynglings consists of along series of basically crap kings who rule for about five minutes each They all die in a ludicrous manner one drowns in a vat of mead while wandering around drunk to look for a place to take a pee, one gets lured into a cleft in a rock by a dwarf while drunk and is never seen again and others die by bull attack and nightmare.

    6. If Snorri s the Herodotus of the Middle Ages, this is his Histories Meaning, it s THE masterwork of epic nonfiction narrative prose for its time Debate its accuracy all you like it s a goddamn awesome read This edition, from U of Texas Press, translated by Lee Hollander, is the one to get Anything Scandinavian from Hollander or U of TX is top notch, actually the best edition of the Poetic Edda, for instance Try the Saga of the Jomsvikings, too.

    7. Great book.Great stories of the Lords of Norway Went into great detail of battles as well It doesn t go into modern history though but this doesn t bother me.

    8. Lots of historyThis book contains the oldest history of the Norwegian kings and of the Norse people Anyone who has Norwegian heritage needs to read this book

    9. It is a good book and a beautiful edition I read the Norwegian Storm edition Good book but a hard read Mostly because the narrative style or flow were that of old texts from about the 1100s and the book itself were worked on and rejigged in the late 1800s.Very interesting if you re into this sort of thing Yes I took a long time to get through it but hey I wasn t doing it for school or anything just for my own personal reasons.

    10. The Heimskringla is a must read for any one interested in Norse history and Loreever this is a large body of work comprising the lives of the Norse rulers and it is not for the light hearted and in my opinion you must have than a passing interest in Norse history to a fully commit to this book and b fully appreciate its contents To the potential reader I would recommend to first read the Eddas certainly the Prose Edda and get a few Sagas be they legendary or Icelandic under your belt Laxdaela S [...]

    11. was going through a phase where i d read everything by tolkein and had started into the ancient texts that had inspired him The heimskringla, the kalevala, beowulf, and such there are elements of epic storytelling that you will find very familiar, and that make it easier to read than you d think and learned that my scandanavian ancestors were pretty brutal.

    12. Le saghe norrene, nella loro forma originaria, non sono molto interessanti, nel senso che non sono molto avventurose Sono una lunga sequenza di eventi e genealogie che hanno un interesse per lo pi filologico e legato agli studi di mitologia e linguistica Non attendetevi granch da questa lettura.

    13. I loved it and I reread it often Battling Norsemen, sly plotting, berserk rage, sailing to new lands for adventures And with occasional weird poetry thrown in by the major characters And for some strange reason, the genealogy had its own fascination And it s all supposed to be true although obviously there s artistic licence on the part of Snorri What s not to like

    14. For anyone interested in the Norse history and literature this book is a must However, it takes the patience of a historian to follow all the details on the lives of kings of Norway a patience I did not have.

    15. It is from Snorri the Icelander that we received the written inheritance of the sagas, tales of the Norse, and these collections of Viking religious and philosophical thought read like a northern Proverbs.

    16. This is quite an interesting read and to think I just came upon it whilst reading Jules Verne s Journey to the Center of the Earth Actually at first I had no idea that the text existed but finally decided to look it up.

    17. This is the definitive saga of the Norwegian kings It s enormous, so it may take quite a long time to get through, but my trip inspired me to explore all things Scandinavian.

    18. This brick of a book is historically interesting Recommended for anyone who may strive for further understanding of the creation of the Norway as one nation in the viking era and beyond.
