Impressions from the reading life
This book just got too complex for me to follow. It is very much like with all Terry Pratchett books I've read. Somewhere I loose track of what is going on, and in the end I have only a vague idea of what happened. I expect this book to grow on me with time. I should go back to re-evaluate old book ratings from time to time anyway.
I should add that I listened to this on audio, and while the narrator is brilliant at giving every single character an individual voice, it might have added to the confusion.
I guess it is time I read my copy of the Edda!
Has anyone read The Sandman series? I read that some of the characters from that series have cameos in American Gods.
All in all a very interesting read. Also, I loved that Shadow read Gravity's Rainbow at his mother's deathbed. It seems to be one of the most avoided yet well-known American novels.
