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.

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

Steaming pile of myself ,

Nothing more than mortal

It proved that people are more likely to be obedient than compassionate, indifferent than morally discerning. It's the doubled edged sword. See just like being gaslighted. Gang stalker are perpetrators and victims of the same thing. People internalize and question an experience based upon fear of rejection but also label feelings as good or bad. Taking far too much ownership of them. Praised, when we don't complain, scolded when we do and tortured and shackled by silence. See people are extremely predictable that's what the study of marketing and psychology has proved. what we do is not the work of wizards, false idols, neon gods more appropriately defines these mob leaders. They are not the one teaching anything only proving... it's learned.... from each other created exactly when energy and matter was. We are more pre-destined, witnessing something rather than participating. When the credits role you have to say I did nothing to be here, I had nothing to do with anything here, nothing to be the influence of absolute laws of the universe and as we play with the Idea that we are behind the direction of creation really we are only participating in delusions of grandeur practicing in futility. Whistling in the dark, but we are all fooled by ego great example is pranks or hidden camera shows because we believe that foolishness is a lack of control. I can not be tricked, people would not and my ego would not allow for it but like clock work April 1st could be any moment. Mary Schelly, Orson Wells, Scott Card, twain all realized the vulnerable is everyone and we all can be the one holding the brush painting fences planted there by an idea by the likes of troubled, selfish And sick sense of humor of the Tom Sawyers. Your beautiful transformation into.... Beautiful butterflies is a good idea but your plan aborted them from your ill conceived plan and taking peaceful precious, beauty, innocents and potential transmogrification of perfection to a sci-fi hi tech expire this lab and excitement turns to outrages as you realized atonement is impossible god created perfection man created "planned parenthood" uhhhh Community enrichment and your left with Jeff Goodblums coming out of mechanical cocoons the symbol of wickedness not heavenly perfection has been created and the vile abomination awaits insidiously mirroring the shame.

Why do you think? Do you think we are a product of the entirety of world. Possibly witness to production of evolved beliefs and opportunity? Thoughts on the responsibility of individuals and institutions to be held accountable for roles as the directors and regulators of dangerous human behaviors. If you intend on creating an atmosphere that directs experiences into condemning, not self respecting and deviant by taking away opportunities and stacking the deck then who is ultimately the responsible party? Where does complicity start? Extreme physical and emotional stress while imprisoned has shown to provoke false statements, cause people to perform acts against their will or break it til the no longer defend their will, their values or life. over longer periods of time the will even defend their captures accepting they are helpless. Creating and evolution of human development til people will take less then they had before and slowly through the insecurity of losing more happily massa take the inhumane treatment than suffer more brutality and cruelty.
