All Beliefs are Welcome Here!
I have been a fan of Neil's since I collected Sandman comics ,
way back when...his unique insight , writing style , and his
character development , create worlds I resonate with , and
would as well love a sequel to American Gods...
Nice to see this Kelly...great review...;)
Thank you, Shawn!
Glad to see another Gaiman fan. :) He is my favorite author right beside Chuck Palahniuk.
That book IS great!
I like how Neil portrayed Odin as Mr Wednesday!:D
Listen to it , Amergin ?
Don't you read ?
Or are you one of the new breed ,
who can't be bothered to hold a real
book , and actually read ?
Gods , I HATE books on tape...;)
I love this book. One of my all time favorites! I'm a fan of all of Gaiman's work I've encountered. I agree a sequel would be nice. I'm curious what direction he would take Shadow.
I've also seen rumors that HBO (?) has decided to make a series of the book. I believe I saw that reported on the Wild Hunt Blog. Anyone know?
Interesting , Amergin...
I have always seen that as second hand information ,
and it makes my skin crawl , to have a book read to me...
Same with sports , or anything else...
If it is not first hand , full participation , it is not for me...
Yet , perhaps this is for another thread ?
( keeping this for Kelly's intent )
I liked the book a lot because Gaiman is such an outstanding author. However from the Heathen POV, just looking at how he made the gods, I was not _that_ thrilled.
'Good Omens' by Gaiman and Pratchett is a book I can wholeheartedly recommend to you if you liked AG.
That being said, normally I can't even be bothered with most novels which are not in the league of classics by e.g. Zweig or Kafka.
