It's not as perfect as The Graveyard Book or Ocean at the Lane; it's also much, much darker and more adult. There is lots of language and sex.
It's funny, because I think I'd read it before, and remembered snatches of it every so often, faintly, like hearing a radio on two houses away, the music occasionally blown by the wind into your ears.
American Gods by Neil Gaiman
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
This isn't my favorite book by Neil Gaiman, but that doesn't mean it isn't magnificently written. From the first page, reading it was like diving into a deep, dark pool - and having trouble coming up for air. The book still haunts me, and it's been a couple of days since I finished it. It's far more dark, gritty, and sexual than any other Neil Gaiman I'd previous read.
