Es que no hay nada sagrado? Dias antes de salir de prision, la mujer de Sombra, Laura, muere en un misterioso accidente de coche. Aturdido por el dolor, emprende el regreso a casa. En el avion, se encontrara con el enigmatico senor Miercoles, que dice ser un refugiado de una guerra antigua, un dios y tambien el rey de America. Juntos se embarcan en un viaje extrano a traves de los Estados Unidos, mientras una tormenta de dimensiones epicas amenaza con desencadenarse. Poco a poco descubriremos que Miercoles es una encarnacion de Odin y que esta reclutando viejos dioses, cuyos poderes han disminuido por el tiempo y la falta de creyentes, para participar en una guerra contra los nuevos dioses: aquellos que conforman la tecnologia moderna. / After being locked behind bars, Shadow just wanted to be with his loved wife Laura and start a new life. Along the way he will learn that the past never dies; that everyone, including his beloved Laura, harbors secrets; and that dreams, totems, legends, and myths are more real than we know. He will discover that beneath the placid surface of life a storm is brewing.

I've enjoyed Gaiman's books in the past and although I know that's no firm indication that I'd like everything he writes, I just wasn't ex...
Mein erstes Date mit Neil Gaiman wollte ich ursprünglich mit „Neverwhere“ bestreiten. Jahrelang schlich ich um den populären Fantasy-Autor, der eng mit Terry Pratchett befreundet war, herum. Ich hatte Respekt vor seinem Ruf und traute mich einfach nicht, ihn kennenzulernen. Dann sahen der Lieblingsm...
I won’t say anything about the novel as everyone has covered that or they are watching the series on TV. I will tell you what I enjoyed about the novel. I enjoyed all the different stories and adventures that Shadow undertook since being released from prison. When he learned of his wife’s death, I w...
