What’s a Viking to do when he ends up on a Florida beach, surrounded by a world he doesn’t understand, with a hyperactive stockbroker as his only guide? Go back to Chase’s hotel, naturally. Chase thinks Bjorn is eccentric at best, a lunatic at worst, or just maybe the real thing: a Viking from the days of yore. It isn’t easy for Bjorn to admit, but he needs Chase’s help to navigate the confusing modern age. While Chase is trying to clean Bjorn up and help him fit in, Bjorn’s sworn enemy also makes the trek through time. Jorund is eager to plunder this new land and finish the job of killing Bjorn’s family line, all in one blow. Bjorn and Chase will have to set aside their vast differences and work together if either of them wants to survive.
Bjorn is, well, a viking. He's from another time and watching him trying to blend in to the present is wildly entertaining. Chase is a saint! He works so hard trying to help Bjorn. I couldn't help thinking about that movie Encino Man. Of course with this satire you need to suspend reality. Yes, it's unbelievable, no this can't really happen. That much is obvious.
We all need books that make us laugh. A- Viking is the perfect book to have that will turn any frown upside down. Really a lot of fun!
