Publisher's Summary

Now a STARZ® Original Series produced by FremantleMedia North America starring Ricky Whittle, Ian McShane, Emily Browning, and Pablo Schreiber.

Locked behind bars for three years, Shadow did his time, quietly waiting for the day when he could return to Eagle Point, Indiana. A man no longer scared of what tomorrow might bring, all he wanted was to be with Laura, the wife he deeply loved, and start a new life.

But just days before his release, Laura and Shadow's best friend are killed in an accident. With his life in pieces and nothing to keep him tethered, Shadow accepts a job from a beguiling stranger he meets on the way home, an enigmatic man who calls himself Mr. Wednesday. A trickster and a rogue, Wednesday seems to know more about Shadow than Shadow does himself.

Life as Wednesday's bodyguard, driver, and errand boy is far more interesting and dangerous than Shadow ever imagined. Soon Shadow learns that the past never dies . . . and that beneath the placid surface of everyday life a storm is brewing—an epic war for the very soul of America—and that he is standing squarely in its path.

"Mystery, satire, sex, horror, poetic prose—American Gods uses all these to keep the reader turning the pages."—Washington Post

What the Critics Say

"This full-cast performance of the tenth anniversary edition of Neil Gaiman's American Gods (think director's cut) is one of the most mesmerizing audio experiences ever.... Ron McLarty plays a randy, crusty old Odin disguised as a white-collar con man to perfection. Daniel Oreskes's Shadow, the hero who doesn't know quite what he is, is masterful. Oliver Wyman, who did Mad Sweeney the Leprechaun, is a genius. Hats in the air for the whole cast, a flawless production, and a tour de force of a tale." (AudioFile)

    "THE definitive audio version"

    I've read and reread this book many times. I've listened to the original audio release many times as well. This full cast recording is amazing. It brought new depth and life to these characters that I thought I knew completely.
    The play between narration and the characters is masterfully done. All narration and dialogue flow smoothly together despite it being a completely different person reading.
    In short, add this book to your collection. You won't regret it.

    "Amazing presentation of a modern classic!"

    I read American Gods when it first came out and loved it. This presentation changes the book and makes me love it more. Do yourself a favor and just give it a listen.

    "Great Book!"

    Just a different fantasy novel. I have read some things similar. Almost two books put together. I'm very suprised his agents didnt convince him to make it a trilogy.

    Very good. The full cast reading was exceptionally well done. The story is just as good as I remember it, and I loved the addition of the new content.

    "The best book experience I have ever had!"

    Living in Menomonie, Wisconsin, the city Lakeside is based on, listening to this book during February and early March, when the book took place was very interesting. This was the best book I've experienced so far in my life.
