Overview

The enhanced edition includes the author reading the Introduction, Note on Text, Interview with Jesus and How Dare You and excerpts from the multi-voice audiobook recording. There are a total of 26 audio excerpts.

First published in 2001, American Gods became an instant classic—an intellectual and artistic benchmark from the multiple-award-winning master of innovative fiction, Neil Gaiman. Now discover the mystery and magic of American Gods in this tenth anniversary edition. Newly updated and expanded with the author’s preferred text, and a wealth of audio, this commemorative volume is a true celebration of a modern masterpiece by the one, the only, Neil Gaiman.

Relevant and prescient, American Gods has been lauded for its brilliant synthesis of "mystery, satire, sex, horror, and poetic prose" (Michael Dirda, Washington Post Book World) and as a modern phantasmagoria that "distills the essence of America" (Seattle Post-Intelligencer). It is, quite simply, an outstanding work of literary imagination that will endure for generations.

Neil Gaiman is exceptionally skilled at blending simple and elegant prose into a narrative which steals your inner cynic and makes his imaginative and masterfully created worlds come to life. This work is by far one of his best and a wonderful introduction to Neil Gaiman's repertoire for new and seasoned fantasy readers alike.

Thought- provoking and fun! This was the first book by Neil Gaiman I have read and I really enjoyed it! Makes you think about the symbols and stories that are powerful aspects of our daily lives.... and what would they be like if these symbols and stories were embodied with personalities? Very creative!

This is by far one of my favorite books ever. So glad a co-worker recommended it to me after having a deep conversation of Amanda Palmer and their relationship. Shadow is an amazing protagonist and this is without a doubt going to be a timeless classic.
