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

©2011 Neil Gaiman (P)2011 HarperCollins Publishers

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)

    "Five stars all the way"

    I don't casually give out stars. I believe that 5 stars should be reserved for the best of the best. That being said, this audiobook rightly earns 5 stars!! If you've started watching the TV show, are a fan of Neil Gaiman, or stumbled upon this book by accident, you cannot pass it up. The story is riveting, the production flawless, and the experience is incredible. I fully believe this book will go down in history as required reading of American literature, though it was written by a British man. I rarely read/listen to a book more than once, but this book is an exception!

    "Wonderful Tale"

    Amazing production of an amazing story. I listened to the tale of Shadow's journey while traveling America myself. It was a great experience that I will not forget, and highly recommend.

    Story
    "After so long..."

    My in laws had given me this book back in 2011 and it has been sitting on the shelf for 6 years, right next to Anansi Boys. I figured I'd get to it eventually. After finishing both books I feel that there is a hole in me waiting to be filled. I wonder what is to happen next? The story was amazing and I will recommend it to anyone, until the day I die. Or can't remember...

    Story
    "Did not live up to my expectations"

    This story was not impressive to me. I found it 'meh'. Finished it only to find out what happened. The ending left the same impression: 'meh'. I kept waiting for THE horror, THE drama, THE brutality, THE love story, the ANYTHING. Most of the actors' voices were not well suited to their characters. I find it difficult to imagine the interest in bringing these characters and this rambling story to the screen.

    "not a fan"

    I found this story difficult to read and probably too long. it was overly sexually graphic in a couple of places that didn't add to the overall story for me. this is the first time that I think an abridged version would be better.

    "A strange story."

    I am still uncertain as to what I read. I will say that I loved it though. It isn't a book that I am ready to read again, I'm just glad that I finished it.

    "Interesting premise"

    Really enjoyed this book. I liked the premise; it held my attention and kept me guessing as to the outcome.
