Overview

The bestselling author of Neverwhere returns with his biggest, most commercial novel yet—a tour de force of contemporary fiction

A master of inventive fiction, Neil Gaiman delves into the murky depths where reality and imagination meet. Now in American Gods, he works his literary magic to extraordinary results.

Shadow dreamed of nothing but leaving prison and starting a new life. But the day before his release, his wife and best friend are killed in an accident. On the plane home to the funeral, he meets Mr. Wednesday—a beguiling stranger who seems to know everything about him. A trickster and rogue, Mr. Wednesday offers Shadow a job as his bodyguard. With nowhere left to go, Shadow accepts, and soon learns that his role in Mr. Wednesday’s schemes will be far more dangerous and dark than he could have ever imagined. For beneath the placid surface of everyday life a war is being fought —and the prize is the very soul of America.

I won’t say anything about the novel as everyone has covered that or they are watching the series on TV. I will tell you what I enjoyed about the novel. I enjoyed all the different stories and adventures that Shadow undertook since being released from prison. When he learned of his wife’s death, I was heartbroken as he has been looking forward to seeing her and now, I feared that he would slip away, go to the dark side or find himself back in prison. Meeting Mr. Wednesday, I liked how Shadow turned him down and decided that he was going to do what he had originally planned. The determined Mr. Wednesday kept after Shadow and when Shadow finally accepted his offer, I had mixed feelings. It sounded like a good plan since Mr. Wednesday obviously needed Shadow but what exactly was Mr. Wednesday up to. The union of these two provided entertaining and captivating escapades and the stories that the two of them shared where fascinating and enjoyable. I never knew what would happen as they journeyed together but I knew in the long run, Shadow would be a changed man. The audio was long, nineteen discs in total, but it didn’t feel that long as I listened to it. I enjoyed the character’s voices, I felt they portrayed exactly what I thought they might sound like. I’m glad that I listened to this novel instead of reading it as I thought it helped bring the novel to life and it helped with the flow of the story. Definitely a great novel in my opinion and now onto another Neil Gaiman audio.
