Synopsis

American Gods, the extraordinary, highly acclaimed epic novel from storytelling genius and international bestseller Neil Gaiman, was brought vividly to life this year in the hottest major TV show of 2017 , and Amazon Prime video series starring Ricky Whittle, Ian McShane, Emily Browning and Gillian Anderson. For fans of The Book of Dust and Mythos by Stephen Fry.



After three years in prison, Shadow has served his time. But as the days and hours until his release tick away, he can feel a storm brewing.



Two days before his release date, his wife Laura dies in a mysterious car crash, in adulterous circumstances. Dazed, Shadow travels home, only to encounter the bizarre Mr Wednesday, who claims to be a refugee from a distant war, a former god and the king of America. Together they embark on a very strange journey across the States, along the way solving the murders which have occurred every winter in one small American town.



But the storm is about to break . . .



Disturbing, gripping and profoundly strange, Gaiman's epic novel sees him on the road to the heart of America.

As American society begins to worship technology and celebrity above the Gods of old, they find their power beginning to wane. Shadow, newly released from prison, finds himself sucked into possibly the weirdest road trip across America with Mr Wednesday, attempting to rally the Old Gods into a final showdown with the New American Gods. This is a big book, but worth every page as you follow the adventure and try to work out which mythological Gods the characters represent!
