Summary:

Now a STARZĀ® Original Series produced by FremantleMedia North America starring Ricky Whittle, Ian McShane, Emily Browning, and Pablo Schreiber.
Locked behind bars for three years, Shadow did his time, quietly waiting for the 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 a 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. Soon Shadow learns that the past never dies . . . and 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.
"Mystery, satire, sex, horror, poetic prose-American Gods uses all these to keep the reader turning the pages."-Washington Post

    I read the original version over a decade ago, and then listened to this revised version over the last few days. It is long, but it is well worth the time. You get so caught up in the story, you don't realize how much time has passed. The narration is great, the various voices for the characters are great. I may even listen to again in a few months or so.

    One of the best books of the last 20 years. Garment weaves a masterful story from human mythology.

    There is nothing I can say about this book that it doesn't say for itself. I find myself listening to this book over and over. Thank you Neil

    Read the book before you watch the show. This is perhaps one of the best stories I have heard.

    Interesting story, keeps your attention. To me the premise is a good one but essentially missed the mark by picking pretty much not American Gods, still, an enjoyable read

    The narrators really bring this book to life. I had read the original release many years ago and the new material in this version was a treat.

    I love the way this was written and how all the characters interacted. it had an awesome twist and I was intensely caught up!

  • Allott B

    A meandering work that travels far, wide back and forth. Great fun, amazing cast and gripping story. My new favorite. Heavy on 'mythology', twisted conjunctions, I may listen to it again in short order!

  • james b

    i didn't not enjoy the plot or the characters. the deus ex machina was thin at best.

  • Erick W

    Gaimen only writes great books with good pacing and a dry wit. American Gods is a great read and i only wish it were longer.
