    First published in 2001, American Gods became an instant classic, an intellectual and artistic benchmark from the multiple-award-winning master of innovative fiction, Neil Gaiman. Now discover the mystery and magic of American Gods in this 10th anniversary edition. Newly updated and expanded with the author's preferred text, this commemorative volume is a true celebration of a modern masterpiece by the one, the only, Neil Gaiman.

    Would you listen to American Gods: The Tenth Anniversary Edition (A Full Cast Production) again? Why?

    Yes, this is the type of story & production that encourages a second listen. Its narrative complexity and the interesting story allows it to be enjoyed more than once. I look forward to listening to it again as well as reading the novel as well.


    Any additional comments?

    I knew Neil Gaiman from the Sandman series but had never read his other work, now that I have been exposed to this work I have continued on to The Graveyard Book and Fragile Things and enjoy both the stories as well as his personal narration of his works. I will enjoy exploring this talented mans catalog of work well into the future.

    Newly divorced and robbed of his farm by his real-estate shark of an ex-wife, 60-something Cliff is off on a road trip across America, on a mission to rename all the states and state birds and redeem them from the banal names men have given them.Cliff's adventures take him through a whirlwind affair with a former student from his high-school teaching days 20-some years before, to a snake farm in Arizona owned by an old classmate, and into the high-octane existence of his son, a big-time movie producer.

    Scott says: "A picaresque novel for baby boomers"

    What did you like best about The English Major? What did you like least?

    While not my favorite Jim Harrison novel I liked it enough to want the audio version. I already own the book and sometimes get audio versions for listing while doing mundane tasks. The reviewers voice and performance leave much to be desired. It is read in a monotone deep voice that makes the story a shade of gray instead of the vivid tones that Harrison's story's and poetry present. I will note the narrator for future purchases and refrain from any he reads.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Mark Bramhall?

    Anyone one with some life in his/her voice would be preferable.


    Any additional comments?

    I would like to see Audible expand its poetry section, of all the areas I enjoy it is the least served and could use more investment.
