Topic: American God by Neil Gaimen

I'm having trouble getting through this book. Is it me. It seem's highly recommended. Read it? Should I press on.

In the past I felt the same about EON by yours truly Greg Bear, I'm glad I never gave up on that one.

I'm hoping the same will happen here.

Neil Gaimen is a Highly Respected Author. I really enjoyed Stardust so I guess, it's either a case of sticking it out or it's a more poorer choice of his books.

By all means, Christopher--push on! Neil's an amazingly versatile and complex writer. I hope our readers will follow us into new territories... because if we have to write the same story over and over, I for one would go nuts.

Have to agree... I think you read Gaiman for the cultural prespective. He's a hell of a social critic. I thought the book was pretty brilliant and certainly something of a new kind of voice.

Having got my reading muse back. I think I was a little harsh on this book. Times for me to pick it up again I think. There are so many positive reviews out there I have to complete it.
