I was working long and strange hours to support a project, and there was actually ...

4.0 American Gods by Neil Gaiman

It's a bit of a crisis for me, I am a writer after all, and I don't have a lot to add to what has already been said, but I'll add this piece to the pile. If you are familiar with his writing or have already heard of this book secon...
