Inside the Book:


Title: American Gods
Author: Neil Gaiman
Release Date: August 16, 2016
Publisher: William Morrow
Genre: Sci-Fi/Fantasy
Format: Ebook/Paperback/Hardcover

Newly updated and expanded with the author’s preferred text. A modern masterpiece from the multiple-award-winning master of innovative fiction, Neil Gaiman.

First published in 2001, American Gods became an instant classic, lauded for its brilliant synthesis of “mystery, satire, sex, horror, and poetic prose” (Washington Post) and as a modern phantasmagoria that “distills the essence of America” (Seattle Post-Intelligencer). It is the story of Shadow—released from prison just days after his wife and best friend are killed in an accident—who gets recruited to be bodyguard, driver, and errand boy for the enigmatic trickster, Mr. Wednesday. So begins Shadow’s dark and strange road trip, one that introduces him to a host of eccentric characters whose fates are mysteriously intertwined with his own. For, beneath the placid surface of everyday life, a storm is brewing—an epic war for the very soul of America—and Shadow is standing squarely in its path.

“Pointed, occasionally comic, often scary, consistently moving and provocative….American Gods is strewn with secrets and magical visions.”—USA Today

“Original, engrossing, and endlessly inventive.”—George R. R. Martin

It has been a while since I have read full out fantasy so who better than to reintroduce me than Master Storyteller Neil Gaiman. After reading this tale I am positive it will not be long before I again indulge my whims for the fanciful imaginings of other worlds.

In this book,Stardust,  a magical country fair takes place beyond the Wall every nine years. A daliance there results in a child, who is raised by his father. Years later, when the boy is grown, he ravels through the meadow into Fairie land in search of a Fallen Star. He is not the only one looking for it. Each seeker has their own reasons. 
Tristan's journey is more than a coming of age lesson, or the story of a foolish young man attempting to please a beautiful woman.

We also meet seven brothers, not all of whom are of one world, as they watch their father die. That brings the question of who becomes the next ruler. How does each story thread entwine in this fantastical book?

Full of magic, fanciful creatures an dangerous adventures, this is a book to be enjoyed by all ages.
