I’m so excited to be reviewing Creation by Bjørn Larssen today! Not only do I love his writing but he’s one of my favorite people I’ve met while book blogging, so I definitely wasn’t missing his new book!
In the beginning there was confusion.
Ever woken up being a God, but not knowing how to God properly? Your brothers keep creating mosquitoes and celery and other, more threatening weapons. What can your ultimate answer be – the one that will make you THE All-Father and them, at best, the All-Those-Uncles-We-All-Have-But-Don’t-Talk-About?
“FML! The answer’s why I drink!” – Odin
Perfect for fans of Terry Pratchett, Neil Gaiman, Thomas Hobbes of Malmesbury, and Mrs Brown’s Boys.
Creation by Bjørn Larssen had me laughing more than I usually do with any book. I absolutely love the humor. Every time I was laughing out loud, my mood was getting better. Love when books can have an impact on me like that.
Bjørn Larssen is an incredibly talented author. Not only is this story funny, but it is also a page turner that kept my attention from beginning to end. I love this take on Norse creation.
The characters are perfect. The banter between the brothers is everything. I love how developed they were as characters, and laughed hysterically over their different arguments.
Hysterically witty and seriously thrilling, Creation has everything I want in a story. I highly recommend giving this one a read. It deserves more than five stars!
I received a free copy of this book so I could read and review, honestly. All opinions are my own and unbiased.
Bjørn Larssen is a Norse heathen made in Poland, but mostly located in a Dutch suburb, except for his heart which he lost in Iceland. Born in 1977, he self-published his first graphic novel at the age of seven in a limited edition of one, following this achievement several decades later with his first book containing multiple sentences and winning awards he didn’t design himself. His writing is described as ‘dark’ and ‘literary’, but he remains incapable of taking anything seriously for more than 60 seconds.
Bjørn has a degree in mathematics and has worked as a graphic designer, a model, a bartender, and a blacksmith (not all at the same time). His hobbies include sitting by open fires, dressing like an extra from Vikings, installing operating systems, and dreaming about living in a log cabin in the north of Iceland. He owns one (1) husband and is owned by one (1) neighbourhood cat.
