American Gods update

2001-07-13 15:20:47+00 by Dan Lyke 0 comments

Finished American Gods on the bus this morning. Not disappointed at all. Gaiman manages to take a very confusing cosmology and make it work, partly because we're associating so strongly with his protagonist, who's also very confused by this universe. The story moves along, the prose is wonderful, the few loose ends have already started to tie themselves up in my mind as I make connections, there are a few references to his other works which don't seem gratuitous, and I don't think I'm spoiling too much by saying that the climax takes place in Chattanooga. Recommended. And Todd's already got his own copy, so I'm happy to pass mine around.
