I first came across Neil Gaiman when I took the Kids to see Coraline. Wow even my wife was scared. It was fantastic. Then I came across American Gods. Probably the best book I have ever read. So... My expectations were very high and i was almost bound to be disappointed. Sadly I was. this is a very good book and the story is interesting and very clever. His play on place names is brilliant and the story shocks, amuses and draws you in. So what was wrong. Nothing. My only complaint was the characters did not have the depth of those in America Gods and I wanted them to.
It really is a pleasure to listen to and if you can enjoy this then go to American Gods.
great one man detective story. loads of wit and human interest. I will look forward to follow on books.
How could I enjoy this so much? Great question. So not my thing. well it clearly was I loved it. it was witty and brilliantly annoying. The main characters were so flawed and quirky.
the narration was excellent and enhanced the humour greatly.
Generally a light easy read I can only say it was a pleasure and it will remain as a book to return to if I am ever feeling blue and just want to feel nice and warm in side.
