A modern masterpiece from the multiple-award-winning master of innovative fiction Neil Gaiman
First published in 2001, American Gods became an instant classic, lauded for its brilliant synthesis of “mystery, satire, sex, horror, and poetic prose” (Washington Post) and as a modern phantasmagoria that “distills the essence of America” (Seattle Post-Intelligencer). It is the story of Shadow—released from prison just days after his wife and best friend are killed in an accident—who gets recruited to be bodyguard, driver, and errand boy for the enigmatic trickster Mr. Wednesday. So begins Shadow’s dark and strange road trip, one that introduces him to a host of eccentric characters whose fates are mysteriously intertwined with his own. For beneath the placid surface of everyday life, a storm is brewing—an epic war for the very soul of America—and Shadow is standing squarely in its path.

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.)
