DO NOT DOWNLOAD THIS VERSION

I've purchased & downloaded hundreds of iBooks to my iPad over the years. However, this iBook is the first one that I could not download. I'm not sure if the file is corrupt or what the situation is.

I spent 2 hours and tried every single trick I know (restarting my iPad; deleting & reinstalling iBooks; etc). No matter what I did, this ebook would NOT download.

Download one of the other versions of 'American Gods' instead.

Wow!

Loved the Sandman series and when my friend told me about this book I picked it up. Amazing read! Characters, plot, and pace are superb. This is one of those books that you have to read. I also liked the excerpts of audio.
