American Gods

Book Reviews

So I’m a little late on the Neil Gaiman train. There was some chatter that the powers that be in Hollywood were contemplating making American Gods into a TV series. Don’t know how well that would go over seeing as the plot intricacies and mythologies make Buffy the Vampire Slayer look like Two and a Half Men (and not in a good way – Sorry, Ashton).

All told, I’m very much enjoying the read. The story is a little less contrived and complicated then The Stand (I love Stephen King – don’t get me wrong, but I needed a legend to know who was who in that book) but just as powerful and evocative. Mr. Wednesday is maniacally brilliant, and Shadow is the true epitome of the anti-protagonist.

Stay tuned!
