But this is not a country that tolerates gods for long. He presents gods and goddesses from all pantheons with respect and a hint of bittersweet remembrance, perhaps, for the lost pedestals and the wasted sacrifices through the ages.
My favourites are the story of Essie Tregowan, a young woman from Cornwall who tries to make her fortune by shady ways, the story of Wututu, a slave girl during the late s and the story of Atsula, a prehistoric priestess.
Not much can be said about the characters, they are gods and they crave love and devotion. Are they really that different to humans?
I don't think so. Yes, of course, he is simple. A simple human being thrust in the middle of a fight between all mighty deities. He is loyal, clever and kind, a character at a loss and at a crossroads, one who the reader can understand and identify with, if that is possible.
All of the above are great reads. It is a book that shows much and hides even more. It wants us to contemplate on a number of themes that are larger than life,impossible to be answered, and yet they will be sought after by generations as long as mankind exists.
Those who claim the opposite are simply lying to themselves. And thank the goddess of Literature for Neil Gaiman. For it is from our hearts they come, and to our hearts they shall return.
If you belong to the clan of the very few ones that go around looking for a fight, turn around and go elsewhere. You will find no response here. It is my conviction that religious beliefs is the most personal of issues and I do not discuss anything religious or anything that has to do with politics.
My religious beliefs are my own and concern noone. And I will not tolerate any aggressive comments towards specific religions or religion in general, towards atheism,atheists, non-believers and the like.
You get the drill. Comments regarding religion of any kind will be deleted and flagged. Thankfully, there is space for everyone in this awful?

However, among the beau coup books that I have loved long time there are a select few that hold a special, hallowed place in my pantheon of favorites…American Gods is one of these elite.
It is deeply emotional, but without a hint of melodrama. His descriptions are elaborate yet not drawn out.
He tells a huge, complex, eternal story, one small My literary promiscuity being what it is, I have read and loved a lot of novels in many different genres.
He tells a huge, complex, eternal story, one small tale at a time. I exploded into tears of ecstasy, lost my bowels and wept uncontrollably for well over an hour.
This made for a particularly awkward moment at the book store but at least I was prepared… Later, when I was calmed down, cleaned up and baby powdered, I sat down and tore through this over the weekend.
Since this is the 10th anniversary edition of this modern fantasy classic, I am going to assume that a fair number of you reading this are at least familiar with the story.
However, I will still avoid major spoilers in this review, except for disclosing 1 the identity of Wednesday and 2 the basic plot. I just think it is difficult to explain the novel without these two nuggets of bookformation.
Just listing the countries represented in this book makes me smile and break out in goose zits. THE TALE OF AMERICAN GODS So our guide throughout the story is Shadow.
While reeling from the aftermath of his loss, Shadow is approached by smooth-talking and mysterious grifter named Mr.
Turns out, Wednesday is actually a manifestation of Odin, ruler of the Norse Gods, and king of all things Asgardian. Thus, when the ancient Norsemen came to America, they brought belief in their gods with them.
When they made sacrifices to Odin, Thor and the rest of the Norse gods, it made them strong and powerful. These new gods of Media, Technology, Internet, Electricity, Highways, Drugs, etc.
Now, these godly young turkers and looking to destroy Odin and his ilk forever and claim supremacy over all of godness.
A war is coming…sweet!!! Realizing the powerful of the 21st century gods, Odin is on recruiting mission to gather up the old gods and get them to sack up in order to avoid being slaughtered at the hands of the upstarts.
From a broad brush perspective, that is really the frame for this novel. However, as with all great art, the beauty of this story is in the details, the aspects, the shadings, the nuances.
The rest of them know what they are. No one ever needs to go searching for the heart of Norway. Or looks for the soul of Mozambique. They know what they are.
This is a beautiful, elegant, but long and meandering journey through the heart and soul of America full of rich and detailed landscapes, historical flashbacks, memorable characters and mythological anecdotes.
Now, despite the novel taking its sweet, leisurely time sauntering towards the end, when it finally gets there, it is arguably my favorite pages of any book EVER.
In fact, the climax is so amazingly good that is it likely to cause one…so be prepared Of course, I am talking about the final dust up between the old and the new.
This segment is filled with more gods and legendary creatures than I have ever seen assembled in one story if you are a South Park fan, think Imagination Land and you will have an idea of the kind a concentrated star power I mean.
There's never been a true war that wasn't fought between two sets of people who were certain they were in the right. The really dangerous people believe they are doing whatever they are doing solely and only because it is without question the right thing to do.
And that is what makes them dangerous. ADDITIONS TO THE PREFERRED TEXT For those of you that have read the original and are wondering whether this expanded edition is worth your time, I say yes…with a caveat.
The story is basically the same and the added text is not so extensive that they change the essence of the novel. However, it you are thinking of a re-read or have never read the story before, I would certainly recommend this edition as I think it provides some additional insight and clarifications that are interesting and worthwhile.
Overall, I love this book. I have now read it three times something I do not generally do with books and I am fairly certain that a fourth time is in my future.
If you love mythology, it is hard for me to imagine you not loving this book. One thing I would recommend is that you have handy either your own mythology guide or else a link to this website that lists all of the gods appearing in the novel.

Shadow is devastated by her death, and is distraught to learn that she died alongside his best friend Robbie, with whom she had been having an affair.
He takes a job as a bodyguard for a mysterious con man, Mr. Wednesday, and travels with him across America, visiting Wednesday's acquaintances.
Shadow learns that Wednesday is an incarnation of Odin the All-Father, and is also recruiting American manifestations of the Old Gods, whose powers have waned as their believers have decreased in number, to participate in a battle against the New American Gods — manifestations of modern life and technology, such as the Internet, media, and modern means of transport.
Shadow meets a leprechaun named Mad Sweeney, who gives Shadow a magical gold coin after Shadow beats him in a fight.

Obviously, as always when I struggle too much, nothing comes to min. I will just let my heart do the talking, then. Neil Gaiman is a genius.
There is something magical about his writing that enwraps me every time I open the pages of his creations.

Maybe it is the way he combines action, mystery, mythology, mysticism, surreal, together with life lessons and harsh truths. His fantasy is different from everything else I read of this genre, weird, disturbing but amazing.
I was awed by the idea of the book. Gods being brought to America by the migrants who believed in them.
As the next generations believe less and less in them, the Old Gods loose their power and are forced to live as ordinary people, struggling to make a living.
New gods appear technology, media to replace the old ones but in the end, as America evolves, they will become obsolete as well. One problem for me in this novel was that I could not connect with the characters, especially with Shadow.
This was probably due to the way the character was constructed, breathing but not really alive, as Laura told him.
I will leave you with a quote that touched me deeply as it is so true, especially today when we experience so much tragedy around us.
We build a shell around it like an oyster dealing with a painful particle of grit, coating it with smooth pearl layers in order to cope.
This is how we walk and talk and function, day in, day out, immune to others' pain and loss. If it were to touch us it would cripple us or make saints of us; but, for the most part, it does not touch us.
We cannot allow it to. View all 26 comments. I am writing this review ten months after I started this book, and eight months after finishing it, because in addition to me taking two-thirds of a year to get around to penciling in some thoughts I also took straight up sixty days to read it.
Well, not read it. Listen to it. This is the first audiobook I have ever listened to, and it is twenty hours long. Funny, right?
THREE OF THEM. THREE OUT OF FIVE. SIXTY PERCENT. What a track record! I have three starred the other two. One of them was Fortunately, the Milk, which, like, who cares at all, and the other was this book.
This book was NONE OF THOSE THINGS. It was okay. Or, really, read it for the first time. Because of the whole listening thing. Ugh you get what I mean.
The plotline is not gripping. A book whose main conceit is that every god that has ever been worshipped exists should be fascinating.
A book in which that is true and also the gods are going to war should be fascinating AND fun. A book in which the aforementioned is true and also it is written by Neil Gaiman should be fascinating and fun AND full-on amazing.
American Gods is none of those things and it will be the great quest of my remaining days on this earth to figure out why the hell not.

The concept of "old versus modern" gods is an intriguing one, and I can always get involved in themes of belief, stories and myth.
It didn't always work, however, and was completed at stuttering pace. Transitions can be rough, and it's not always clear where a particular chunk of narrative is heading.
I feel like part of it is that we have indeed lost the old gods American Gods, a meandering tale of a book, took me at least two tries to get through, despite my gravitation towards urban fantasy..
I feel like part of it is that we have indeed lost the old gods, and many people need a little background on Gaiman's creatures in order to appreciate the tale he's telling.
Often it's well done, but at times it interrupts the flow of the narrative. I often enjoy Gaiman's imagery, although occasionally it's self indulgent, seemingly for the sake of being shocking, like the woman that swallows a man through her vagina during sex, and a dead person vomiting maggots.
A few loose ends don't particularly seem pertinent, view spoiler [ such as the leprechaun that gives Shadow a gold piece, which Shadow then is moved to throw it into Laura's grave.
I'm not sure of the point of that subplot either--the power of belief? Characters and ideas are clearly his strengths. I loved some of the old gods, and thought Mr.
Nancy and the Chicago family particularly well done. The new gods were less well done, though the concept is a fascinating one.
However, the pantheon gets a little fuzzy at this point, particularly in Gaiman's decision to largely leave out "modern" organized religion--as Anubis and Bast and such were worshipped by Egyptians, it seems fair to acknowledge Jesus as more than a hitchhiker in Afganistan.
I wonder if he avoided it for complexity? The voice and tone is narrator is emotionally removed from the story, but I felt it suited the tone and scope of the novel well.
I liked Shadow and felt he was a very believable character for a while. Emphasizing his numbness and distance helped explained how he could be so blase about the return of his dead wife and Mr.
Wednesday's abilities. It's interesting that after his initial questioning and challenging of Mr. Wednesday and the leprechaun, he accepts the rest of the magic at face value.
I have mixed feelings about the ending. And the fact that the plot of the novel is a double con--well, I too feel more than a little betrayed.
It seemed weak that both old and new gods took Shadow's announcement and popped back to reality, ready to abandon the fight then and there.
Certainly their animosity had to be based on something, and removal of primary motivation doesn't remove built up antagonism. Two-and-a-half stars, rounding down because my memory assures me I don't want to touch it again.
It appears that this book that I reviewed back around was deleted off my shelf and readded in - but definitely not by me.
What makes me furious is that it erased the entire long comment thread for this review. Conversations with friends are NOT replaceable.
But at least it prompted me to start the long-overdue re-read. It slowly meanders through strange places and events, with nothing coming together to form a coheren Interesting.
It slowly meanders through strange places and events, with nothing coming together to form a coherent picture for a while, almost frustratingly so — until the last quarter of the story where everything crashes together with a vengeance, and the whole emerges from the pieces, and everything falls into place and makes you see that it was all worth it to finally get here.

The novel's dedication reads "for absent friends — Kathy Acker and Roger Zelazny and all points in between". The Discworld novel Small Gods explores a similar origin of deities thoughtform.
While Gaiman says that he did not read the book by Terry Pratchett , he thought they shared a worldview due to their same geographic origins and, more importantly, their daily phone conversations.
He had also sought advice from Pratchett on resolving plot elements of American Gods. According to Gaiman, American Gods is not based on Diana Wynne Jones 's Eight Days of Luke , "although they bear an odd relationship, like second cousins once removed or something".
When working on the structure of a story linking gods and days of the week, he realised that this idea had already been used in Eight Days of Luke.
He abandoned the story, but later used the idea when writing American Gods to depict Wednesday and Shadow meeting on the god's namesake day. In his introduction to Fritz Leiber's The Knight and Knave of Swords Gaiman acknowledges Leiber's portrayal of Odin and Loki had "definitely smudged into" and informed his take on the characters.
While Gaiman was writing American Gods , his publishers set up a promotional web site featuring a weblog in which Gaiman described the day-to-day process of writing, revising, publishing, and promoting the novel.
After the novel was published, the website evolved into a more general Official Neil Gaiman Web Site. As of , [update] Gaiman regularly adds to the weblog, describing his daily life and the writing, revising, publishing, or promoting of his current projects.
On 28 February , Gaiman announced on his journal that for one month the complete text of American Gods would be available to the public on his publisher's website.
The book won the Hugo , Nebula , Locus ,  SFX Magazine and Bram Stoker Awards, all for Best Novel, and likewise received nominations for the BSFA Award ,  as well as the World Fantasy ,  International Horror Guild and Mythopoeic , and British Fantasy  awards.
It won the Geffen Award. In May , American Gods was selected in an online poll to be the first "One Book One Twitter" book.

At the end of season 1, Fuller stepped down as showrunner and was replaced by Jesse Alexander. The two had previously worked together on Star Trek: Discovery and Hannibal.
Gaiman's next novel, Anansi Boys , was conceived before American Gods and shares a character, Mr. Nancy Anansi , the spider god of African legend.
In an interview with MTV News published on 22 June , Gaiman said that he had plans for a direct sequel to American Gods. Gaiman had plans for a sequel even while writing the first book and has said that he is likely to focus on the New Gods in the sequel.
