Has anyone read American Gods by Neil Gaiman? I bought it todayHas anyone read American Gods by Neil Gaiman?I bought it today Corina #review
Yes. I thoroughly enjoyed it.
Yep. It is a wonderful book. Neil Gaiman always likes to dip into old myths and stories for his novels and this one is the best example of him doing so. Even if you don’t know all the names of the old gods mentiones in “American Gods”, you still get what they are about. I thoroughly enjoyed reading about them in a modern setting. You’d think that someone mashing so many cultures and believes into one story would lose the thread and end up with a confusing mess, but it really is a very fun and easy read that just grabs you from the very beginning. Every character, no matter how small their part, is interesting and full. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.
Yeh trippy book
I loved it.
Yes. It’s amazing. Now go buy everything else he’s every breathed on. Seriously. He’s the best.
The Ocean at the End of the Lane is my favourite by him. But Stardust is also great.
Praise be to our literary lord and savour, Neil Gaiman.
His shine was severely, irreparably tarnished after what he did to “Doctor Who” and the Cybermen.
@Peter Funnily enough, I don’t like Dr. Who. So that’s the one aspect of Neil Gaiman I don’t care about.
… you do realise there’s a hole in your logic there, right?
“Now go buy everything else he’s ever breathed on. Seriously. He’s the best”.
You should be watching his two episodes now, shouldn’t you?
@Peter I should. However, just because I haven’t, doesn’t mean everyone else shouldn’t. They should. 🙂
It’s not flawed logic, it’s selectivism.
Yes, I liked it. I can’t put my finger on why I didn’t love it though, there was just something missing.
I would say it’s definitely not his easiest book to read though… other ones I’ve also loved but are much easier reading are, Anansi boys, Neverwhere and The Ocean at the end of the lane 🙂
I’ve read people say that on here before, that they found it hard to read. Could you please tell me what it was that you found difficult?
Oh i loved it but I know others have found it difficult… these are just other books I’ve loved that are much easier to read.
But what did you find hard to read? I am honestly confused that so many people feel this way and I would like to understand why.
I didn’t find it hard personally, it’s just I’ve seen so many people say they found it hard reading, especially in the September book club, so I’m just kind of taking that into account really.
Oh, ok. Thanks for answering.
Didn’t like it at all tbh
It was pretty good. The tv series has been pretty spot on to the book.
One of my all time favorites. I’ve read it 3 times in the last 3 years
I just started it as well. about 50 pages in and definitely worth the time so far 😀
Go research all the Gods he mentions. You’ll be so inspired by his artistry in using these ancient stories.
Yes! One of my favorites by him. Actually I love all of Gaiman’s works!
I’m still making my through his work but I’ve been impressed with it all so far.
books by neil gaiman is good.
It’s really good!
Kinda strange but a very good read!
Currently reading. It is a little strange but we’ll written..
I will read anything he ever touches lol
Me too ?
I loved it. I picked it for my BC over the summer but it wasn’t really well recieved. Oh Well, book club is for trying different books.

It was our book club book for the group this month ??
It is the next book on my tbr pile, can’t wait!
yep,, good stuff
No… But I watched the TV show and it was really good.
İ have read….its worth reading ?
Yes! One of those books I had to force myself to read…then it got awesome and then it was finished and I was sad! The show on STARZ is pretty good too.
Yes!!! Just finished a few weeks ago and loved it!
Great book, you must read Gaimans other books.
I loved it. Gotta read Anansi Boys after you finish it ?
currently reading it
I just started it last night very good
I read it and couldn’t finish it. Was kind of very slow for me and I didn’t get what was going on.
Yes. I have mixed feelings for it
Yes and next is Anansi Boys!!!!!
It’s awesome! ? I loved it. And Gaiman is a fantastic writer…i love his works. <3
I read it. Forgot I read it and bought the book AGAIN! It wasn’t until chapter 2 I realized I’d read it already. It was “ok” … a little weird.
I found it quite a hard read… I agree with @Sihl it is a slow read… But I managed to finish it and I was proud to do so
I tried so hard to keep reading. Wanted to finish it too but oh well. ?
I didn’t finish it, I found it too long and although I understood it I couldn’t get on with it but I will be re-ordering it next year and trying again.
Read it. Now I’m waiting for season 2 on Starz
About 100 pages into it. Its amazing
