"The Fenris-wolf swallowed the King of the Gods, the world-snake
poisoned Thor; everything was burned in a red light and drowned in
blackness. It was, you might say, satisfactory." -- from her
afterword, "Thoughts on Myths"
I found the style of her retelling very nice -- it reminded me (to a degree) of Michael Swanwick in The Iron Dragon's Daughter (which may be his masterwork). She brings the Old Norse and Elder Edda stuff into the 21st century very effectively, I thought. Give it a shot, even if you don't read much literary fiction.
I've put a link to a good professional review of Ragnarok as a Comment, below.
