Released from prison, Shadow finds his world turned upside down. His wife has been killed; a mysterious stranger offers him a job. But Mr. Wednesday, who knows more about Shadow than is possible, warns that a storm is coming -- a battle for the very soul of America . . . and they are in its direct path.

One of the most talked-about books of the new millennium, American Gods is a kaleidoscopic journey deep into myth and across an American landscape at once eerily familiar and utterly alien. It is, quite simply, a contemporary masterpiece.

    I am sorry - people have been sick at work, meaning overlapping deadlines and extra overtime. Can't make it tonight. I did read the book though. I found it engrossing, depressing and perplexing in turns. I didn't see the surprise ending coming. The book could be read on many levels so I really would have liked to hear other views. Best, Karen

    Hi guys, sorry I haven't been there the last times and won't be able to be there tomorrow, I've joined a class on Thursdays, I hope I can go next time, have fun!
    Adnan, I tried reading American Gods but stopped at 200 pages, it didn't get me. Maybe someone can tell me the end because I'm curious but I just can't finish it. Friendly regards, Mirna

    I won't be able to finish American Gods unfortunatley so better for someone from the waiting list to join. Will finish reading in any case and then looking forward to the book to read in May!

    I'm pretty sure I'll have a work commitment now, so I leave my space to someone on the waiting list. Great book, finished it yesterday and I'm sure you'll have a great discussion.
