Book Review: American Gods
American Gods by Neil Gaiman
Other than Coraline, I have never read anything by Gaiman, so Jessy recommended I give this adult title a shot.
I enjoyed Gaiman's words, and found myself pulled right into the story of Shadow - released from prison, finds his wife has died, and is pulled into a new world by a man named Wednesday, all on the same day.
As the book wore on, I found myself increasingly bored with the plot, and wished Gaiman would have injected a bit more action, a bit less self-meditating into the story, plus I was puzzled over some of the mythology that wasn't fleshed out to me.
An interesting premise, great narration, but a bit too long and slow for my taste.
