Released from prison, Shadow finds his world turned upside down. His wife has been killed; a mysterious stranger offers him a job. But Mr. Wednesday, who knows more about Shadow than is possible, warns that a storm is coming -- a battle for the very soul of America . . . and they are in its direct path. One of the most talked-about books of the new millennium, American Gods is a kaleidoscopic journey deep into myth and across an American landscape at once eerily familiar and utterly alien. It is, quite simply, a contemporary masterpiece.

by Neil Gaiman I kept hearing how good this book is, so when a buddy read came up, I had to join in. I had even bought the book without my usual vetting through reading a sample. The beginning surprised me. It wasn't at all like I expected and although there were hints of weirdness to come, I fo...

So I read "American Gods" back in 2004. I went on a trip with this woman from my former to Playa del Carmen. She told me that I should read "American Gods" because she thought she needed to help me broaden my horizons. Don't get me started on this woman, she was very rude about me hanging out with o...

4.0 American Gods by Neil Gaiman
I decided that the time had come to read this in preparation for the Starz series, which looks amazing. I'll start by saying that I really liked this book, although I don't think that it has tipped The Graveyard Book out of it's Numero Uno spot as my favorite Gaiman. One of the most noteworthy thing...
