American Gods (American Gods, #1)

Days before his release from prison, Shadow’s wife, Laura, dies in a mysterious car crash. Numbly, he makes his way back home. On the plane, he encounters the enigmatic Mr Wednesday, who claims to be a refugee from a distant war, a former god and the king of America.

Together they embark on a profoundly strange journey across the heart of the USA, whilst all around them a s

Together they embark on a profoundly strange journey across the heart of the USA, whilst all around them a storm of preternatural and epic proportions threatens to break.

Scary, gripping and deeply unsettling, American Gods takes a long, hard look into the soul of America. You’ll be surprised by what – and who – it finds there…

This is the author’s preferred text, never before published in the UK, and is about 12,000 words longer than the previous UK edition.

    In 2003, I walked away from my childhood religion – a high control (some would say abusive) group with a tiny little worldview and a severe superiority complex.

    This was my reality:

    I believed with all my being that the things depicted above were real, and were just over the event horizon.

    Leaving meant losing almost every friend I had ever made since childhood, it created a rift with my still devout family, and quite possibly saved my life.

    This was my reality:

    I believed with all my being that the things depicted above were real, and were just over the event horizon.

    Leaving meant losing almost every friend I had ever made since childhood, it created a rift with my still devout family, and quite possibly saved my life.

    Is it any wonder that fiction – alternate realities, fantasy, and mental escape – helped me make that decision, helped me move on, and helped deprogram my cult-think? One fiction supplanted the other, only this time I already knew I was working with stories.

    Some of this fiction I had read many times, not understanding why the stories resonated so strongly within me, just knowing that I was compelled to return to those worlds, over and over. Others were stories I read during the time surrounding my breakaway, and shortly thereafter.*

    American Gods made me observe and think differently. It gave me a new context for the mythologies I had accepted for most of my life. It was bigger than the story of Shadow, or the girl Sam, or Czernabog. For me, it was about how we allow our Old Gods to define our present worldview, and how we allow our New Gods to steal our awareness. Our mythologies set the boundaries of our culture, and paradoxically, as our culture changes, our gods sacrifice their immortality.

    “Religions are, by definition, metaphors, after all: God is a dream, a hope, a woman, an ironist, a father, a city, a house of many rooms, a watchmaker who left his prize chronometer in the desert, someone who loves you–even, perhaps, against all evidence, a celestial being whose only interest is to make sure your football team, army, business, or marriage thrives, prospers, and triumphs over all opposition.”

    The part of the story that affected me the most profoundly was the story of Hinzelmann and Lakeside. The mixing of good and evil, the blurring of lines, townspeople looking the other way – to such a degree that it never occurs to them to see what is happening right under their noses. Dead men’s bones. Deaths of legends. It affected me to my core. During the time I was reading American Gods, it was this which rocked me – I was doing the same thing – choosing and keeping and killing my own Gods, my own mythologies.

    It was tremendously painful, made a little easier by having the opportunity to process it within the bounds of somebody else’s story.

    Anybody who tells you that the book is about old and new gods, or about a man named Shadow, or about coin tricks, or about having one’s head smashed in for losing a game of checkers, is selling you a line, because those are just details, not the story itself.

    Much like any Neil Gaiman story, the devil is in the details, and you just have to resolve yourself to coming along for the ride or you’ll miss it. It’s not one story, or two, it’s many, and it’s all complete…and you have to just read it,

    Much like any Neil Gaiman story, the devil is in the details, and you just have to resolve yourself to coming along for the ride or you’ll miss it. It’s not one story, or two, it’s many, and it’s all complete…and you have to just read it, and enjoy it, and accept it. Or just don’t bother.

    I might as well sell you a violin as sell this book to you, or pluck a synopsis of it from behind your ear and then deposit it in my hand, only to have it turn into a critical review while your attention is elsewhere. But I won’t, you’ll just have to find the magic yourself.

    This is a tough review for me to write. I’m not exactly sure what it is about this book that I don’t like. I’m not sure there even IS something I don’t like. Since I don’t want to just leave you all with the ever popular “I’m just not that into it”, I will try to explain.

    This book has all the elements of a book I would enjoy. The creepiness factor is up there, the writing is brilliant, the main character is a big lug I couldn’t help but love. Also, I have always been fascinated by mythology, so

    This book has all the elements of a book I would enjoy. The creepiness factor is up there, the writing is brilliant, the main character is a big lug I couldn’t help but love. Also, I have always been fascinated by mythology, so that’s a plus.

    Shadow is our main character and he just got out of jail after doing his time of three years. Right before he is supposed to be released he is let out early, because his wife was killed, in apparently scandalous circumstances. The first 50ish pages were about the extent of where the book was interesting to me. Shadow meets Wednesday, and then the story turns into a bunch of mini stories and flashbacks, and I didn’t enjoy most of them. Some were okay, but the majority just felt like annoying disruptions, and I felt myself thinking this is yet another longer book that could benefit from losing about 100 or so pages from the dragging middle. Shadow is paid by Wednesday to be an errand boy while he travels America trying to rally his troops in preparation for a war between The old Gods, and the new Gods (media and money) I guess it’s my own fault. I couldn’t really bring myself to care about this war between the new and old Gods, because the Gods of Media and Money? Not my Gods…

    Books that are hyped up as much as this one leave me in a place where I tend to get disappointed, because it’s so hard to live up to those expectations. Of course that’s not the books fault, but I was just expecting to like this book much more than I did. I never felt engaged while reading this book, and that’s the reason I couldn’t rate this above three stars. I could appreciate the great writing and originality, however, so I couldn’t give it below three stars.

    Three stars it is folks, but as most of you know this book is loved by (almost) all, so of course I encourage everyone who is interested in this book already to read it, and form your own opinions. This book didn’t do it for me, but I am definitely going to try some of Gaiman’s other books and see if I have a better experience.
