American Gods

I finished American Gods, yesterday. It was pretty good, although it made me wish I was more familiar with Norse, Native American, Indian, Irish, French, German, etc., mythology before I read the book.

Quick synopsis: Immigrants brought with them their Gods. America is not a good place for Gods. Gods need to do something to survive. Go.

It is not a slam-bam wow book, but it is good. I would recommend it.

    Bill,

    I read this on your (almost 4-year-old!) recommendation recently. Just finished reading it a few weeks ago. I think I feel the same way as you – it’s a solid reading experience that I’d recommend.

    Then, yesterday, I stumbled across this:

    I personally don’t tweet or follow anyone there (yet?) but found it to be interesting timing.

    John
