    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 completeand you have to just read it, 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 ...

    Whenever we have a cold snap here in Wisconsin, I find myself thinking about one of my favorite pieces of American Gods I remember reading it back in 2002 or so This was back in the day Back when it was a bit of a secret that Gaiman lived in Wisconsin I read the following section of the book nodding to myself, thinking, Yup, that s exactly what it s like Then I had another thought I bet this comes from that really bad cold snap we had here in Wisconsin about six years ago It was prett Whenever we have a cold snap here in Wisconsin, I find myself thinking about one of my favorite pieces of American Gods I remember reading it back in 2002 or so This was back in the day Back when it was a bit of a secret that Gaiman lived in Wisconsin I read the following section of the book nodding to myself, thinking, Yup, that s exactly what it s like Then I had another thought I bet this comes from that really bad cold snap we had here in Wisconsin about six years ago It was pretty cool for me, being able to guess where a this piece of this book got its start For those of you who haven t read it here s the excerpt The main character, Shadow, has just come to a small Wisconsin town, and he decides to walk into town to buy some warmer clothes and groceries The cold snap had come, that was for sure It could not be much above zero, and it would not be a pleasant walk, but he was certain he could make it into town withou...

    I find myself shocked at the awards this book has won and the praise heaped upon it How on Gods Earth could a book about Gods walking on the Earth among mortals be so pedestrian Somehow Gaiman managed to turn a potentially cool premise into something boring For those who love this book and I know it is many please forgive the sarcasm to follow as I blaspheme against the beloved Gaiman But Gods help me, theI read, theI hated American Gods.First off, while the premise sounds inter I find myself shocked at the awards this book has won and the praise heaped upon it How on Gods Earth could a book about Gods walking on the Earth among mortals be so pedestrian Somehow Gaiman managed to turn a potentially cool premise into something boring For those who love this book and I know it is many please forgive the sarcasm to follow as I blaspheme against the beloved Gaiman But Gods help me, theI read, theI hated American Gods.First off, while the premise sounds interesting theI thought about it, the less I liked it The basic idea theworshippers a God has, thepowerful they are The plot there is a building power struggle between the old Gods Norse, Native American, pagan, etc and the new Gods Technology, Television, Money, etc Okay, I ve heard the ratio of worshippers to power idea before so that s not so original But it s not a deal breaker It has potential Here s the unique twist in American Gods that caused my political antenna to start tw...

    In this unique love letter to the United States, Gaiman manages to celebrate its underground spiritual traditions, glory in the magnificence of its landmarks, landscapes, and bizarre tourist traps, and most important both mourn and venerate its pagan often immigrant gods in decline, battered and diminished though they may be by the shallowness and speed of our technological world The gods are indeed the best part of this very good book degenerate and threadbare, yet still gods, capable of In this unique love letter to ...
