    Interesting to read about the real Ragnar, the myth is very heroic.

    This history of the Vikings was well researched and filled with facts. I enjoyed the breakdowns of each area the Vikings had ventured to and what their contributions to the history of the region was.

    I'm going to start by saying that my dad would have absolutely loved this book. I grew up with a history buff as a father and this would actually be one of those books that I would have loved to share with him, and which he would have enjoyed as thoroughly as I have. That said this book is a lot more thorough in context than I thought it would be, after reading the bio. I was expecting a light read, but instead, I discovered a deep dive into the history of a group of fascinating people.

That said this book is a lot more thorough in context than I thought it would be, after reading the bio. I was expecting a light read, but instead, I discovered a deep dive into the history of a group of fascinating people. Covering everything from Vikings in Russia to their weapons and sports and entertainment as well as Norse mythology and so much more left me very pleased with my book choice. Yes, kids, there is a lot more to Norse mythology than Thor and Odin (and the little bit else shown in the Marvel Universe) And this book covers it all. I especially appreciated it that every chapter had a section featuring additional reading material, which made it even easier for me to dive into the parts that I enjoyed the most. . As someone who loves both art history and mythology, these ended up being my favorite sections, and I will take advantage of the further reading suggestions made by the Author. Thanks to my Dad, I thought I knew a little bit about the history of the Vikings, but I quickly learned that I had not spent enough time with these interesting people. Not only did this book sharpen my interest and knowledge, it made me crave for more and for that I am thankful. If you are looking for a well written, well-researched and interesting about the Vikings then I highly suggest that you pick up this book

    I will first say that I enjoy reading both historical books about the Viking/Norse peoples as well as the Sagas that pertain to their heroes. This book fell far below my expectations. It was not organized well and instead of going through each chapter in a chronological order, sections would double back before jumping to a new date/time. For a reader unfamiliar with the Norse history, this would prove confusing. Secondly though most chapters end with a list of references where the facts were pul I will first say that I enjoy reading both historical books about the Viking/Norse peoples as well as the Sagas that pertain to their heroes. This book fell far below my expectations. It was not organized well and instead of going through each chapter in a chronological order, sections would double back before jumping to a new date/time. For a reader unfamiliar with the Norse history, this would prove confusing. Secondly though most chapters end with a list of references where the facts were pulled from, the last chapters did not include this. The issue was that some of the facts were incorrect. For example, this book states on page 226: “They wore menacing helmets with two horns…” There is little to no evidence that this was the case. Most of their helmets were simple—bowl shaped with nose guard. I did find it interesting that the final chapter discusses several centuries after the Viking era. This was a nice additive to add more depth to the Scandinavian past. Overall, I would not recommend this book to those wishing to learn Norse history, especially if you come in with no knowledge of the people and the time.

    Every scrap of Viking history, culture, beliefs the author could find thrown together in topical chapters. The writing is abysmal. Disorganized. Repetitive. Poorly constructed sentences. Grammar?! I checked to see if this was a very poor translation. It isn't. Non-English speaking proof-reader? Just terrible. That being said, there is a lot of information. If you're a fan of "The Vikings" you'll find Ragnar, Ivar and Floki, but I'd look elsewhere for a well-written history of the Vikings.

    This is a well documented historical account of the Viking raids in the UK, Iceland, Wales and Ireland. The Vikings were fierce warriors and took many lives while plundering monasteries and churches for treasure, gold, and other artifacts. I wonder why they were so fierce when they were looking to settle in new lands due to overcrowding in the Scandinavian countries. The story is written from the annals and other historical papers written at the time.

The Vikings were fierce warriors and took many lives while plundering monasteries and churches for treasure, gold, and other artifacts. I wonder why they were so fierce when they were looking to settle in new lands due to overcrowding in the Scandinavian countries. The story is written from the annals and other historical papers written at the time. Many parts of these manuscripts are missing but enough has remained to follow the battles, settlements, and conversion of some of the Vikings to Christianity. The old English, as well as the Scandinavian language and translations, make the book hard to follow at times but the story is able to be understood. As a lover of history. I enjoyed it but felt that pronunciations of some of the words, events, names and other historical content would have been helpful. It would have made the book more understandable without trying to figure out how the events related to each other.

    For me, i got interested in the Vikings after watching the amazing TV show and wanted to know more about these amazing characters and to decern what was real and what wasnt!. Unfortunatly, whilst this book did shine a small light on some of the main characters highlighted in this show , it also caused me utter confusion with the way it went backwards and forwards in time!and even in some places i had to read over and over again because it contradicted itself! .There were a few litracy mistakes as For me, i got interested in the Vikings after watching the amazing TV show and wanted to know more about these amazing characters and to decern what was real and what wasnt!.

It wasnt a Bad book but for me it could have been a lot better, if i were the Author i would look for a better Proof reader!.

    This is a very insightful book, filled with tidbits of all the Vikings quests. Since as early as 500 BC did they rule. Not afraid to explore the lands. With their perfectly crafted ships, they manage to rule the seas for over 2000 years. They were at times brutal in their endeavors over land and sea but it gave them the upper hand. Definitely a book worthy to read.

    Ragnar Lothbrok An excellent book from Noah Brown. A very interesting history lesson. This book makes you feel as if you are a part of the Vikings. Recommend this book and its author.

    Basic overview, too basic really, and with some parts wrong or misconstrued. Listened to an audio version and the pronunciation was so bad it was difficult to take seriously. There are better viking/norman overviews out there.

    This is an outstanding history of the Vikings that is understandable by the average reader. If you have any interest or curiosity of that history this book is a great book to start with. I recommend it. Its well-written and easy to understand.

    Very hard to read and keep the character names strait. Good book as a text book. I learned a lot about where and who my ancestors are.

    In spite of the title, the book is mostly a level history of Vikings in various parts of Europe and the Americas. Some discussion of the sagas of Ragnar and his family.

    Author is all over the place... The character, I had thought would be center of the story appeared briefly and at random.

    Reads as though written by a 7th grader This book is so poorly put together, I was unable to finish it. Perhaps poorly or loosely translated from another language?

    Very enjoyable book about the Vikings!

    The title is a bit misleading: one may think Ragnar is one of the main subjects of the book, instead it's treated like any other chapter of the book. It's very informative, but the pronunciation of some words by the reader, ruins at some point the experience. Hence the score.
