This was an entertaining story that seemed to miss a certain punch. It could make a good tv show of they flesh out some of the stories and add to it. However the book on its own was good.
I bought American Gods without any expectations. I had liked the other Gaiman books that I had listened to. So, I thought I gamble on this one.
I had some misgivings on the start of the story because it talked about Shadow and Shadow wasn't a god. I always try to puzzle out how the plot would develop and I couldn't even guess how the story would go. And I always like that with the best writers, when you can't even guess how the story would twist.
I like the philosophical quotes and points of view interspersed throughout the narrative as it makes me think. Very meaningful.

I simply cannot express how amazing this book is. Listen! It's worth it, I promise.
What an amazing, twisting story. I just finished it and feel I could listen to it all over again. Feel like I must live it again. The acting was great and made the story really come alive.
A plot that made sense.
No, but I won't be reading any more books by this author.
The fat kid; Horus the Hawk; almost all of the "modern" gods; Mr. Town; Mr. World
I really wish I hadn't wasted my time with this book. I get the impression the author had a lot more enjoyment researching the histories of the various gods than I did reading about them in this story.
American Gods was an absolutely incredible book and the full cast recording was fantastic! I absolutely recommend this novel and recording to anyone who enjoys a dynamic story filled with nuance to excitement!
