Publisher Description

Now a STARZ® Original Series produced by FremantleMedia North America starring Ricky Whittle, Ian McShane, Emily Browning, and Pablo Schreiber.

Locked behind bars for three years, Shadow did his time, quietly waiting for the day when he could return to Eagle Point, Indiana. A man no longer scared of what tomorrow might bring, all he wanted was to be with Laura, the wife he deeply loved, and start a new life.

But just days before his release, Laura and Shadow’s best friend are killed in an accident. With his life in pieces and nothing to keep him tethered, Shadow accepts a job from a beguiling stranger he meets on the way home, an enigmatic man who calls himself Mr. Wednesday. A trickster and a rogue, Wednesday seems to know more about Shadow than Shadow does himself.

Life as Wednesday’s bodyguard, driver, and errand boy is far more interesting and dangerous than Shadow ever imagined. Soon Shadow learns that the past never dies . . . and that beneath the placid surface of everyday life a storm is brewing—an epic war for the very soul of America—and that he is standing squarely in its path.

“Mystery, satire, sex, horror, poetic prose—American Gods uses all these to keep the reader turning the pages.”—Washington Post

Mecha Shiva ,

One track

This is very well performed. However, the chapters are not divided up. There is only one nearly 20-hour long audio track. This makes it nearly impossible to go back and listen to specific parts. Due to how unwieldy this is, I'm giving this version three stars.

Brute Sentiment ,

Full cast version - Cannot recommend enough

More audiobooks need to be done in this way... it brings the book to life in a new way.

As for this story, American Gods is a truly epic story, epic in the way The Odyssey is. It contains a lot, maybe too much for some, but the characters are rich and wonderful, and I wish we had more with some.

Experience this audiobook...you won’t regret it!
