    Shadow Moon has served his time. But hours before his release from prison, his beloved wife is killed in a freak accident. Dazed, he boards a plane home where he meets the enigmatic Mr Wednesday, who professes both to know Shadow and to be king of America. Together they embark on a profoundly strange road trip across the USA, encountering a kaleidoscopic cast of characters along the way. Yet all around them a storm threatens to break.

    Brilliantly written but just plods along

    I can't help but feel more should've happened in this book or more explanation. The characters are great and the world they live in but I don't know. ..Show More »

    Shadow Moon has been away from America for nearly two years. His nights are broken with dangerous dreams. Sometimes he almost believes he doesn't care if he ever returns home. In the Highlands of Scotland, where the sky is pale white and it feels as remote as any place can possibly be, the beautiful and the wealthy gather at a grand old house in the glen. And when the strange local doctor offers him work at the party, Shadow is intrigued.

    shadow stands out

    missed shadow moon amd loved this short story, if Mr G could keep them coming that would be wonderful

    If his rotter of an estranged father hadn't gone and dropped dead at a karaoke night, Fat Charlie Nancy would still be blissfully unaware that his dad was Anansi the spider god. He would also have no idea that he has a brother (called Spider) who is also a god. And now this brother is trying to take over his life, and is generally doing a much better job of being him.

    Enjoyable throughout

    Not having known Lenny Henry's work before listening to this book, I had no prejudices. I love Neil Gaiman's writing, his humor, his limitless ideas ..Show More »

    Shadow Moon has been on the road a while now, but he can't walk any farther tonight, not with the rain lashing down. Gratefully he heads home with a nice English couple, who offer a box room, hot whisky and local tales. But when the man collapses en route, Shadow realises that something about this place has been left untold. Something ancient, something within the very walls of the village. Something shadowing them all.

    A must listen if you like American Gods

    This is an absolute must listen if you enjoyed American Gods. Niel Gaiman at his best
