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)

    "Get this audio book!"

    Loved it! Great book, great writing, great narration. No regrets.

    10/10 would listen to again.

    I liked it so much that I'm even sad about finishing the whole audiobook. I never reread books or repeat audiobooks but I'll make an exception with this one.

    "Not great"

    This was my first attempt at a Neil Gaiman book and I'll just say it, I'm not impressed. Story line leaves more to be desired, performances by the cast are hit or miss. This book should be a hard pass if you are considering listening to it.

    Story
    "First Neil Gaiman novel for me, left me wanting more."

    The story was very interesting, but some chapters were a little too convoluted for my comprehension. Sometimes to shift from present and past would get me confused.

    My least favorite aspect was the voice talent. Was not impressed by the actor who performed Shadow's role, Wednesday's voice actor was better but I was surprised to learn he was not Ian McShane. Overall, the narrator's role was the best, which was good because his role was the most important to the story.

    I did enjoy this taping for the most part, it has given me an interest in Neil Gaiman's other works outside of comics.
