I thoroughly enjoyed this book. What a scary, funny, exciting, haunting, dreamy and twisted road trip!! American Gods is now definitely one of my favs. This is an audiobook that I will listen to again and again. Awesome.
I can't believe how much I'm enjoying this book. Everything about it is excellent. The story itself is extremely compelling. The concept of Gods living and dying based on the strength of people's belief is clever and compelling. And the mix of godly omnipotence and earthly limitations makes the read intriguing and ingenious without ever falling into the trap of inconsistent logic that plagues so many fantasy stories.
The cast is excellent. They bring the characters to life and seem wonderfully true to the book's character design. The recording is also top notch, so all in all, it's a great, great selection. I never wanted it to end.
A novel of monumental portions, that once started. You are unable to put it down. The characters are unique to come alivethanks to a great cast is that enhances an excellent story.￼
It has been a very long time since I purposefully lost much sleep over a good book. This is a classic and should be treated as one. Shadow is a perfect imperfect protagonist who becomes very much a part of yourself.
Gaiman has laid a path of theology and philosophy that captures the essence of humankind. Not just Americans.
A brilliant piece of literature from start to finish. I heartily recommend it!
If you're looking for a fast-paced book, this isn't it; but if you like the idea of a lengthy, meandering tale that would be told by the fire, this is a great one.
I had already read and listened to American Gods twice before I picked up the 10th anniversary audible version. The casted voices of this version were great and added a lot more to the whole presentation of the story. I highly recommend it and will look forward to listening to it again in the future.
