American Gods

American Gods
Title: America Gods
Series: American Gods #1 
Author: Neil Gaiman
Genre: Fantasy
Pages: 674 
Rating : 4
Days before his release from prison, Shadow's wife, Laura, dies in a mysterious car crash. Numbly, he makes his way back home. On the plane, he encounters the enigmatic Mr Wednesday, who claims to be a refugee from a distant war, a former god and the king of America.

Together they embark on a profoundly strange journey across the heart of the USA, whilst all around them a storm of preternatural and epic proportions threatens to break.

Scary, gripping and deeply unsettling, American Gods takes a long, hard look into the soul of America. You'll be surprised by what - and who - it finds there...

My thoughts
Would I recommend it ? yes
Would I read more of this series ? yes
Would I read more of this author ? maybe 
I'm so glad that I decide to give this author a second chance because I read one other book by him which was Neverwhere ( London Below #1) and sadly didn't like it.But then I saw  that Mr.Gaiman was offering this copy of American Gods Tenth Anniversary Edition on NetGelley and I had heard it was good so I went and got it and wow I can see why people say this is their favorite one or one of their favorite  of his books.At first it's kind of slow and hard to get into but I was reading other books along side this one but the more I read it the more I got in to the story and got to know the characters,that there was times that I knew I was supposed to be  reading the other  books that I just didn't want to put it down and doing those time I just kept reading. Another  thing I loved was how he mixed and blended the different types of mythology and the supernatural together, and that with each turn of the page the characters came more to life. But a big win for me was how this book give me every thing I was hopping for which the mystery, the adventure as well as a bit of darkness and even some of the characters was just plain down right creepy. With that said I wan to give a big thanks to  Mr.Gaiman as well as his publisher and NetGalley for giving me this chance at reading and review American Gods and I can't wait to pick up more of this series to read when I can.
