Not sure how many times I've read this. Gaiman is the only writer whose books I read more than once. Mostly.

Finally got around to reading this book. My roommates buddy read it with me so we can watch the show. As usual Gaiman steals your heart and captures your attention with stunning imagery. Full of great characters, locations, and mythology.

MyBookSwapClub You must be a big fan of NYC :) 2w
Meaw_catlady @MyBookSwapClub NYC is pretty great! But actually my roommate collects them. And I thought it went with the book because it‘s totally a place of power . Plus it‘s what people relate to coming to America :) 2w
MyBookSwapClub You are spot on with relating America to this great statue! It's a great pic! 2w

Well, I‘ve finally completed one book for my #friendrecchallenge. Unfortunately, I can‘t say I enjoyed it much. I can feel my boyfriend‘s disappointment already and I haven‘t even told him yet. 😅 I wanted to like this, but I was honestly bored through most of it. The story seemed to ramble, and I never really felt invested in what was happening.

2. I very rarely listen to podcasts. I think the Eclectic Readers podcast was the most recent, but it‘s been quite a while, so I‘m not sure.

“The best thing about being in prison was a feeling of relief. The feeling that he'd plunged as low as he could plunge and he'd hit bottom. He didn't worry that the man was going to get him, because the man had got him. He was no longer scared of what tomorrow might bring, because yesterday had brought it.”

What an adventure!

I went back and forth with how many stars to give American Gods because it is lengthy and some parts were perhaps unnecessary. However, that ending secured the four star rating.

Shadow is released from prison and just as he thinks he is about to return home to his wife, he learns of her passing from a fatal car accident. His life takes a huge turn when he meets Mr. Wednesday.

Loved the aspect of the new gods vs old gods!

nu-bibliophile This book has been staring at me from my bookshelves. I haven't started it because the size of it intimidates me 😬 3mo

Any recommendations for my next read? I feel like a bit of Stephen King maybe... 🧐💙

Due to rain (again), we have had a very chill day. We played an enchanted forest board game, ran around the stars on the rug, and now we are relaxing in our own ways. For my daughter that means watching movies on her tablet while wearing a Rudolph nose on her head. 🤣

Brilliant. I love this thing more every time I read it. The full cast audiobook is a great experience as well, if you get the chance. I love the brutal honesty about myth and the history of the beliefs that have come down to us through the generations. Meaningful but also just one hell of a good ride.

This book makes you question morality and sin, love and forgiveness, devotion and obligation. It makes you think about what separates us from our roots and from each other. It makes you question whether the world is changing too fast and too much.

Neil Gaiman is a master story teller. Neil is also a gifted orator, and if you get a chance to listen to this audio book you get a chance to truly appreciate it, as he reads some of the book himself.

I prioritized this book on my shelf because I wanted to see the Amazon series by the same name. This book boarders on epic- god characters, road trip, mystery, more gods; the list goes on. And just when the story feels like it‘s slowing down, Gaiman reaches into whatever god pantheon he cares to to give us cool new characters and wicked little plot twists. Pretty much the genius of this book
