What I wish would have been more in depth looks into all these gods and their idea of themselves. What do these gods think they represent to their people, and how many other ways can they be worshipped. I also loved their origin stories. Great read wish there was a part 2.
American Gods a long read, and I don't have a lot of reading time, so it took me awhile to complete it and it was totally worth it!
If you read any of Gaiman's Sandman series or Good Omens (probably my favorite), you will not be disappointed in American Gods.
If you like dark, British humor you'll love Gaiman's work. It's intriguing, mysterious and absolutely hilarious. (Like the humor of Douglas Adams mixed with the bizarre, absurd, yet thought provoking style of Tom Robbins.)
