American Gods by Neil Gaiman

American Gods is a quirky, involving story that mixes the best qualities of a fairy tale with the most compelling aspects of a classic road novel…American Gods is assured and ambitious, resembling nothing except Gaiman's Sandman stories… believable grounding in the minute trivia of the real world rivals the book's grounding in the fantastic and arcane world of ancient theologies; those two aspects meet and merge to form a cohesive, compelling whole that approaches Gaiman's finest work. Like most road-trip novels,American Gods can be disjointed and episodic, but, like the best of them, it's still worth the trip.  - Tasha Robinson, A.V. Club

“We don’t urge readers to drink, we urge drinkers to read.”
