    One thought on “Asgard Park”

    1. A truly dark tale about a Nordic god named Heimðallr. “Heimðallr, the god who was born of nine mothers (the waves of the sea), is said to have been the father of all the castes of humankind.” (thank you Wiki!!). It wouldn’t hurt to read a bit about him before you start this book. It makes things a little clearer.Birger Wallenberg is taking over the Asgard Park Institute. – an institution for the mentally ill. Originally from Copenhagen; he has been selected from many applicants to head [...]

    2. I use the Kelley&Hall review as my own: The gods are afoot in Asgard Park, which is a multi-layered, complex literary thriller that searches for patterns and meaning in a chaotic universe while remaining grounded in basic human interactions and conflicts. Simonar, who resides in Sweden, joins a distinguished group of authors like John Banville (The Infinities), Hari Kunzru (Gods Without Men), and Neil Gaiman (American Gods) who journey deep into myth to create lesser gods.An American NSA off [...]

    3. One of the best books I have read in this season.While reading you will transported from Albania, to USA, Sweden and Germany. Wallenberg is attracted to the Asgard Park, a mental institution, with the promise of being able to manage a research team.

Meanwhile in Albania, Avxhiu, a beautiful widower, is going to have his life to turn complet [...]

    4. This was a Firstreads giveaway win.I received this book along with a note from the author about how it might be a difficult read but if I stuck with it, it would be worth it. I will agree that it was a difficult read in that it started a little slow. I also found I had to pay close attention to the story line in order to keep up with what was going on. It is definitely not a beach read or a fluff title that you could plow through in a day. I wouldn't recommend trying to read it where there are [...]

    5. I was delighted to receive this free as a first read. This is a complex but compelling story, a thriller full of twists and turns. It is a book I thoroughly enjoyed reading, which has a plot I’m not sure I fully understood. Of minds and bodies invaded by a God of good or of evil? I’m not sure! Of men who are sane or insane? Again I’m not sure! But it is definitely a book to savour.There is certainly a deal of violence, there is a type of romance, and there is suspense and disbelief in abu [...]

    6. This is a very good book that you need to read. Once you pick it up it is hard to put down. A very good spy thriller with a twist. If you are a nonbeliever or a believer it makes you think at the end “Is God real?”.Rating:4Heat Rating: mildReviewed by: Susan

    7. Between the undefined acronyms, the incredibly long/difficult names, and the references to groups and organizations I have never heard of, it was extremely hard to figure out what was going on.Check out my blog for my full review: tubchairtimes/2012

    8. Did not enjoy this book. It started out slow, keep jumping back/forth and I gave it my 100 page try but couldn't finish.
