I’m not really one to read fantasy novels, but this one was quite something. Clever, fast paced and with themes of life, death, love, revenge, obligation, gratitude, desire, loss and the right time for things to happen ��" how could I not like this book?

The story is not straightforward. Rather, it's a meandering road trip that takes numerous pit stops at creepy carnivals and random road-side attractions. Only, you have old worn-out gods and cranky demons for company.

Highly recommended, and definitely one of my favorite novels of all time!

Fascinating read. It takes a few chapters to reveal the topic of the narrative, but Gaiman is a genius.

American Gods took me on the road trip I could only dream of as a child. Neil Gaiman takes you on an adventure through the back streets of America. You travel to Chicago to meet Czernobog, drink apple cider with Wisakadjak, and fly on the back of a Thunderbird. It's an amazing story and I recommend it to everyone.

"Review" by , "The book has wit but is too busy and not very engaging and includes some graphic language, sex, and disturbing events."
"Review" by , "A magical modern Adventures of Huckleberry Finn — this book will astonish you on ever page."
"Synopsis" by ,

Shadow is a man with a past. But now he wants nothing more than to live a quiet life with his wife and stay out of trouble. Until he learns that she's been killed in a terrible accident.

Flying home for the funeral, as a violent storm rocks the plane, a strange man in the seat next to him introduces himself. The man calls himself Mr. Wednesday, and he knows more about Shadow than is possible.

He warns Shadow that a far bigger storm is coming. And from that moment on, nothing will ever he the same...
