my issue with this book is that it felt like it was building to something that never happened. maybe that's the point or maybe that's just the kind of story this is, but it wasn't what I was hoping to read. That said, it's beautifully written, if a tad pretentious in places
The ultimate road trip, a little bit of murder mystery, and a tale of all the immigrants who have ever come to America - American Gods defies an easy description.
What happens to gods when they are forgotten?
When we create new gods, what will they be?
Put this book on your "must read again" list!
Great story told by an awesome cast! I thought I was going to be disappointed because I haven't read any Gaiman stories in many years, since I had kids, I now have teens. I wasn't disappointed, Neil Gaiman just as marvelous a writer as I remember him being when I became obsessed with The Sandman, and actually got a job in a comic book store to pay for that obsession. lol!
The cast really made it come alive! excellent investment!
I had to force myself the get through the whole thing. It's not that it's a bad story. It's an incredibly good, well-thought tale. It's just that the highs and lows of the story didn't vary enough to keep me on the edge of my seat. I'm glad I listened though. A great book to have read.
A wonderful story with fascinating characters. Harsh at times, but (mostly) appropriate to the storyline. It ran like a movie in my head the whole time. I'm looking forward to the TV series based upon this book that is supposed to air in early 2017.
This is a great book with a great cast. I had a lot of fun listening. The book itself is well written and it's a very engrossing story. Make sure to pay attention when you're listening though. Large events happen fast.
