Description

American Gods is an urban fantasy novel by Neil Gaiman.

Summary of the Book

When Shadow is released from prison and heads home, the last thing he expects to see is the funeral of his wife. He’s even more shocked to discover that she had been sleeping with his best friend. He meets a mysterious man called Mr. Wednesday on the plane, and accepts a job as his bodyguard. Mr. Wednesday knows a lot more about Shadow’s life than he lets on, and for some reason, his friends seem to be stranger than he is. When he discovers that Mr. Wednesday is none other than the Norse God Odin, he realizes that he has gotten into matters more macabre than he can comprehend. What Wednesday has in store for the world is a war between the old gods and the new gods, and that could change the world forever.

It is more than a book...

It is said in an interview with Gaiman in the book, that he was pleasantly surprised with the awards and recognition he got for this book... Well, I would say to Mr. Gaiman that he was right and he did not deserve any award he got for this... He deserves so much more...
Taking up characters from myths all over the world and giving them depth that would put the Marcel Cinematic Universe stick-figures to shame is something only an out-of-world mind such as Neil Gaiman could achieve... With a pl...

Must buy!

This is a masterpiece. But if you're just starting with Neil Gaiman then I'd recommend The Graveyard Book and others instead of this, because I personally feel like this is an intermediate work of his. Beginners may not feel familiar with the writing style used in this book.

Real Fantasy

Gaiman has an imagination unlike any. He takes you into the psyche of a country, of a world really, who have long forgotten their gods and embraced new ones. It's a brilliant social commentary spread over a magical book in a manner which is quite stunning and rivetting.
Gaiman is a wizard. My review of this book is simply a means to express my awe.

Worth the money

The book was delivered in great condition and on time . The size of the book is perfect and is easy to hold and read. This version also has extra material included in it like interview and a novella. The story is great but you'll need to have some prior knowledge about all the religion and myths for this book to hit hard.

Just okay

The book's back panel was damaged but other than that nothing was out of order. I hope Flipkart takes better care at packaging books in the future.
