Praise for American Gods:
“It should come as no surprise that 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.” –Tasha Robinson, The Onion (Focus section)
“It’s a rich, lyrical homage to the repository of narrative bequeathed to us by the mythology and folklore of all cultures, and a generous gift from an inveterate romantic and mythmaker who manifestly loves nothing so much as the simple art of storytelling.” –Bruce Allen, Boston Globe, Sept.9th 2001
“Gaiman—who is best known as the creator of the respected DC Comics Sandman series–has a deft hand with the mythologies he tinkers with here; even better, he’s a fine, droll storyteller.”–The New York Times
“There’s something raw about American Gods, too. It’s a polished piece of writing, no doubt about that, but it has that simultaneous urgency and sprawl of a writer finding their feet.”–The Guardian
“Gaiman exhibits his usual deft characterization and keen ear for dialogue and wordplay, but the book represents a step forward for his prose…American Gods is assured and ambitious, resembling nothing except
Gaiman’s Sandman stories.” –Tasha Robinson, The Onion (Focus section)
