"Excellent overview of the history of trolls. . . . Trolls: An Unnatural History weighs in at only 144 pages but never feels too brief. Lindow takes a long view of his subject matter. . . . To follow a thread throughout 1,000 years of history, in several different countries, is not an easy task. In the hands of someone less knowledgeable and less skilled in presenting their arguments, a book can end up as a mess. Here, Lindow avoids all those traps, instead giving us a coherent, insightful, and informed exploration of a fascinating subject that deserves a wider audience." --Stephen A. Mitchell, Harvard University "Fortean Times""You likely won't find another source for such an in-depth look at trolls, internet comment sections notwithstanding." --Stephen A. Mitchell, Harvard University "Spectrum Culture"
