MickyP's review of American Gods

An absolute pleasure


5out of 5

by MickyP on January 16, 2008

Neil Gaiman?s understanding of religious concepts and ability to translate them into a contemporary writing style has no parallel. In an age where the ideal of God is narrowing to a fundamentalist notion, Gaiman reminds the reader of the plurality and diversity religion has given to humanity while at the same time offering a scathing criticism of its negative effects. A witty, engrossing and highly rewarding read, this novel stimulates as well as entertains. References to global religions, myths and cultures abound in this modern day commentary on American culture and society.
