Publisher Description

Since it was first published, American Gods became an instant classic. Now discover the mystery and majesty of American Gods in this beautiful reissue of the Author's Preferred Text edition. Featuring a new preface by Neil Gaiman in honor of the novel's 20th anniversary, this commemorative volume is a true celebration of a modern masterpiece.

Locked behind bars for three years, Shadow did his time, quietly waiting for the magic 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—it is a job that takes him on a dark and strange road trip and introduces him to a host of eccentric characters whose fates are mysteriously intertwined with his own.

Easy Reading for the Thinking Man

What I liked most about this book was the author’s style of writing. His easygoing style and flow make it a pleasure and a breeze to read.

No words, scenarios or characters are wasted. No loose ends. No cheapness.

The story is amazing and juicy with enough excitement to keep you hooked and entertained.

The only complaint is that it feels rushed, even lazily written at times. Almost as if the author didn’t care to fill in certain details which would have added value. He jumps from scene to scene a bit too quickly and you feel as if he is eager to get to the next plot point.

Fascinating Read

I absolutely loved this book. I found myself texting a friend who had already read it when I got to certain points in the book, and I loved using the “look up” feature to help me get a grasp of all the mythology. I’d give it another star if I was able.

Sublime and Surreal

I adore stories with so many levels; philosophical, magical, action, dramatic arcs,snappy dialogue.

Even more, I enjoy a story that is complete at all those levels. Take what you found, be it a new philosophical mindset or a rueful shake of the head at roadside tourist traps.

Happy Trails!
