Twice now, it's quite a good read - but drags in a few spots.
I'd also recommend Neverwhere and Anasi boys by Gaiman, as they share similar qualities (and some characters). The Lucifer comic series by Mike Carey is also something that might be enjoyed.

Haha, Neil Gaiman is my hero.

I've read American Gods, Anansi Boys, Neverwhere, and Good Omens(him and Terry Pratchett, of course)

And right now I'm delving into Sandman, like usual. XD

I read it, I loved it, I'm pissed at my cousin for losing it. So I'll have to replace it when I have a spare buck and my head in the right direction.

I adore Neil Gaiman. I love his short stories...I've read all of his novels. His newest collection of short stories contains an epilogue of sorts to American Gods.

I just recently finished this book. I loved it!
(what little icelandic is spoken in it is 100% accurate, which makes me REAL happy too)

Re: Is anyone interested in the book American God?
I read it when it was up online and loved it. But then, I've loved all of his books (and MirrorMask, which was splendiferous)

I really need to read it again now that I'm not biased against Wednesday...

And should it be that we shall never meet again,
Know that I will always keep you in my heart,
And I will search for you in that time beyond time
Until we do meet again, and you will know
That love and family are the miracles of the world.

Re: Is anyone interested in the book American God?
*quietly worshiping Neil Gaiman* I loved American Gods. I admit I 'squee'd!' loudly when he introduced Mr. Ibis. *purr!* I think one of my favourite stories of his- the title of which eludes me at the moment since a friend of mine has been borrowing Smoke and Mirrors for months- is about the angel cat that fights the devil to protect his family. The last line of that story NEVER fails to give me goosebumps. Neverwhere wasn't originally a favourite, but the more I read it, the more in love with it I am. Anyone else read Coraline? That honestly gave me the creeps. ^_^

Coraline is the one I can't seem to find anywhere. I've read both Fragile Things and his children's compilation. I loved the black cat story too <!-- sSmile --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_e_smile.gif" alt=":)" title="Smile" /><!-- sSmile --> My favorite out of there (Besides the sequel to AG, obvi) was "The Problem of Susan."

And should it be that we shall never meet again,

And I will search for you in that time beyond time
Until we do meet again, and you will know

Coraline is really hard to find. I lucked out when I found it hiding in Hastings. It was a definate pounce on THAT book. *claps* "The Problem of Susan" was one of my favourites, too! That also bothered me about The Chronicles of Narnia, that Susan would be essentially excluded from Heaven/"being saved" simply because she grew up and lived in the world itself. I also liked the story about the seasons. Ooo, and the one about Michael Moorcock's Elric!
