Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: American Gods (Paperback)
This book is the author's preferred version. This means it is exactly as Gaiman would have wanted it to be. In some cases this is a good thing, but probably not in this book as some parts are quite bogged down and would have been better being streamlined.
On the positive side the book transcends conventional genres and is extremely readable. The characterisation is particularly good, especially in the case of the main character - Shadow.
Overall, an excellent read, but very occasionally let down by long-winded sections.
It is a book that I wanted to re-read immediately, which is always a good sign of a quality book.
