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.

    A Masterpiece.
  • jordan corpier
    Pulling my hair out just to finish it. If Seinfeld were a book with out any comedy, this is it. A dreadful book about nothing.
  • Clint Kelly
    ten stars what a journey
  • Jeremy Hallman
    Good quick read. Only grazes a surface worth further exploration. Agree with others that there wasn’t a satisfying conclusion. Still worth the time to read.
  • Brandy Curfman
    I really didnt understand the point of this book. There were aspects to it that were good, but for some reason i just couldnt get into it.
  • Nikky Singh
    Mesmerized Faith is such an important aspect of our lives; the presence or absence of it. This book takes you on a journey that makes you wonder- are they all real?
  • David Maldonado
    Amazing read the whole book in two days, I just couldn’t put it down even at work I read it at every break I had.
  • Garrett Rogers
