I’ve read American Gods several times. It pushes all the right buttons from the fantastical to the mysterious. I’m a life-long lover of mythology and Gaiman’s use of it throughout the novel is absolutely delightful. He manages to fuse contemporary sensibilities and humor with those of the old gods. I’m particularly fond of Loki and Eostre, who eats live bunnies. It’s by turns, touching, horrifying, and funny, and it’s full of heart. If you love world mythology, I think you’re especially likely to love this book.
