WORTH CONSUMING!

True enough, very very similar to Anansi boys, but about 1000 times better. I preferred Neverwhere, but I still loved this book. Shadow and Wednesday are the perfect anti-heroes, you can’t help but love them through all of their varied and multiduninous flaws.

NOT WORTH CONSUMING

Read this after endless recommendations — it completely failed to capture me.

WORTH CONSUMING!

It took me months to read because I was mostly reading it on my lunch break and during chiropractic therapy sessions. It was so detailed and involved and mind bending that it took me a week to figure out that I think I liked it.

Worth reading though, regardless.

WORTH CONSUMING!

Since I’ve read Anansi Boys recently, it’s painfully clear, how very very very similar the two of these are. Really, Anansi Boys was just this plot, but with the lack of backbone that characterized Neverwhere. I think I’m done with Gaiman now. It seems like he has one story to tell, and he’s just telling it over and over, with occasional different perks and characters.

Great book. A brilliant resolution leaves you thoroughly fulfilled.

Good gripping fantasy book, fun premise, if not the most original plot.

Winner of the Hugo and Nebula. It made me shiver, repeatedly.

A story about this — 10 years ago

A very good book, with vivid and sometimes really disturbing imagery (kitten in the closet… eeew). Good references to myth and legend, although it was a little spare for me. Good read though.

The sticker on the front said “As Good As King or your money back”. Stephen King has written some quite poor books recently, so perhaps they’re right.

Reified gods, modern and classic duke it out. A novel that looks at mythology and its impact on our perspective in day to day life.

WORTH CONSUMING!

There was a hypnotic, dream-like quality to the writing and I loved feeling like I was being sucked in every time I opened it. Highly recommended.

Joel gave me this book when he moved out to L.A. I found time on my reading schedule for it while we went on vacation, and I found it very entertaining.

I actually got this book by way of bturner, and I found All Consuming through his website, so it’s only fitting that I comment on American Gods here.

I’ve been a fan of Neil Gaiman for years, since the Sandman graphic art novels were first coming out. His ability to weave mythologies together to create a spellbinding universe is unparalleled and always completely fascinates me. I highly recommend everything he writes :)

WORTH CONSUMING!

While I wouldn’t call this a “great” novel, it certainly was a fascinating read.

I can’t imagine the thought and research Gaiman put into this novel. There are so many details of gods and other things in the novel, many of which I’m sure he tried to keep as truthful as he could. I’m not sure how much I can talk about the book without giving some of the secrets away, so you’ll have to read it for yourself.
