Praise for American Gods:
”Provocative yet fun…Gaiman has applied his vast breadth of knowledge about all things mythological to a truly high concept…American Gods works because of Gaiman’s singular control over the proceedings, his nimble and intelligent voice, and his gift for painting spectacle and splashing big themes across his canvas.”—Entertainment Weekly
“Gaiman has a deft hand with the mythologies he tinkers with here.”—The New York Times Book Review
“Original, engrossing, and endlessly inventive, a picaresque journey across America where the travelers are even stranger than the roadside attractions.”—George R. R. Martin
