Publisher Description

The bestselling author of Neverwhere returns with his biggest, most commercial novel yet—a tour de force of contemporary fiction

A master of inventive fiction, Neil Gaiman delves into the murky depths where reality and imagination meet. Now in American Gods, he works his literary magic to extraordinary results.

Shadow dreamed of nothing but leaving prison and starting a new life. But the day before his release, his wife and best friend are killed in an accident. On the plane home to the funeral, he meets Mr. Wednesday—a beguiling stranger who seems to know everything about him. A trickster and rogue, Mr. Wednesday offers Shadow a job as his bodyguard. With nowhere left to go, Shadow accepts, and soon learns that his role in Mr. Wednesday’s schemes will be far more dangerous and dark than he could have ever imagined. For beneath the placid surface of everyday life a war is being fought —and the prize is the very soul of America.

Wow!

It has been a long time since I have read a novel that I could not put down. I was up well after midnight just to learn what would happen next. This book deserves all the awards it has won.

Phenomenal Read

It’s hard to find a book that pulls you in and doesn’t let go until the end. This book had me invested in every way from the get go. Neil Gaiman does a spectacular job of weaving an emotional, thrilling, and magical story about a regular man in a chaotic world of gods. From mythology to mystery, this book proved that it was a phenomenal read.

Just a thought. Just a smirk. ,

What?

It started me at the last page and I was so confused
