#71 American Gods by Neil Gaiman

American Gods
My Rating: 8 out of 10 stars
This was a pretty thick book, 628 pages long, but it went by fairly quickly nonetheless and I greatly enjoyed it. While reading, I found myself trying to place which God or Goddess was represented by each character that Shadow met on his travels with Wednesday. (I was pretty good with all the Egyptian ones and Kali; the exact form of some of the Norse ones escaped me, though the names were familiar.)

I’m looking forward to reading Anansi Boys now, which is sort of a follow-up to this book.

See the BookCrossing journal page for this book for more reviews and information.
