Review of American Gods

American GodsAmerican Gods by Neil Gaiman

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

A good page-turner, but ironically for a book that is about the fate of gods, the stakes felt extremely low. Gaiman very quickly establishes a porous boundary between life and death for mortals and then, later, establishes the same things with gods. So it’s never at all clear if anyone is actually facing extinction.
