American Gods

American Gods by Neil Gaiman

American Gods


Hi my name is Amazement. Let me introduce you to the rest of the group. Over here in this row we have Enthralled, Awe, Fear, Disgust, Anxiety, Joy, Happiness, Incredulous, Sadness, Envy, Gratitude, Hope. Ahh, in the very back there’s Surprise and Wonder.

Now you’re probably asking yourself why we are all in the same room together. Now that’s a good thought…question? Probably a thought phrased as a question. Anywho, why are we all here?

You see Magic over there, she’s the pretty one in the corner over there, she sweet talked us all into getting together to do a novel. Now, when she first came up to me I thought that was a ridiculous idea, but Magic there is something else. After enough talking she got us all up in a line, waved her pen at us and *poof* we were in a book that ends up being the Hugo and Nebula award winner, and a book discussed at Universities.

How else could you describe a book about mythological gods in modern day America being possibly the best book ever written? Magic was involved. Wondrous literary magic.


Side Note: Neil Gaiman is without a doubt–you can’t argue against it cause it’s a fact–the most amazing and talented and magical writer to ever have lived. His novels have literal magic in them.

I truly cannot recommend Neil Gaiman enough. You can ask anyone that knows me, I have recommended they read every Neil Gaiman novel, and re-recommend him after each new novel I read, or old novel I reread.

  1. Love this book. I still need to visit the Midwest and see the house on a cliff.
