First published in 2001, American Gods became an instant classic an intellectual and artistic benchmark from the multiple-award-winning master of innovative fiction, Neil Gaiman. Now discover the mystery and magic of American Gods in this tenth anniversary edition. Newly updated and expanded with the author’s preferred text, this commemorative volume is a true celebration of a modern masterpiece by the one, the only, Neil Gaiman.A storm is coming . . . 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 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. Along the way Shadow will learn that the past never dies; that everyone, including his beloved Laura, harbors secrets; and that dreams, totems, legends, and myths are more real than we know. Ultimately, he will discover 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.Relevant and prescient, American Gods has been lauded for its brilliant synthesis of “mystery, satire, sex, horror, and poetic prose” (Michael Dirda, Washington Post Book World) and as a modern phantasmagoria that “distills the essence of America” (Seattle Post-Intelligencer). It is, quite simply, an outstanding work of literary imagination that will endure for generations.

Loved it! .
Different Very Interesting
An interesting concept, however the story lacked a satisfying conclusion
This is a deep book with an easy voice. I often found myself googling various names and mythical figures out of sheer curiosity. Gaiman often draws deeply from established details about historical and mythical figures to shape his characters and the ways they behave. I adore this, and love to see what and how insights about the characters corroborate with what I read. As a fan of the Sandman series, I felt nostalgic and also tickled at the little overlaps in how the system of existence for the gods and concepts worked. Neil is wonderful at telling a story that sweeps you towards truths and insights in a satisfying and entertaining way.

Great book This is a great story about American and the gods. The ending pays off for a someone who is not much of a reader.
American Gods. This book was extremely well written, and the characters compelling. often leaving me curious as to aspects of the story. Overall, i am glad to have read this.
A Wonderful Story Couldn’t put it down.
Prepare To have your imagination lit up
Good book Need editing though since there are small story that doesn’t have anything to do with the main story and slowed it.
