Inhaltsangabe

Now a STARZ® Original Series produced by FremantleMedia North America starring Ricky Whittle, Ian McShane, Emily Browning, and Pablo Schreiber.

Locked behind bars for three years, Shadow did his time, quietly waiting for the day when he could return to Eagle Point, Indiana. A man no longer scared of what tomorrow might bring, all he wanted was to be with Laura, the wife he deeply loved, and start a new life.

But just days before his release, Laura and Shadow's best friend are killed in an accident. With his life in pieces and nothing to keep him tethered, Shadow accepts a job from a beguiling stranger he meets on the way home, an enigmatic man who calls himself Mr. Wednesday. A trickster and a rogue, Wednesday seems to know more about Shadow than Shadow does himself.

Life as Wednesday's bodyguard, driver, and errand boy is far more interesting and dangerous than Shadow ever imagined. Soon Shadow learns that the past never dies . . . and that beneath the placid surface of everyday life a storm is brewing—an epic war for the very soul of America—and that he is standing squarely in its path.

"Mystery, satire, sex, horror, poetic prose—American Gods uses all these to keep the reader turning the pages."—Washington Post

Kritikerstimmen

"This full-cast performance of the tenth anniversary edition of Neil Gaiman's American Gods (think director's cut) is one of the most mesmerizing audio experiences ever.... Ron McLarty plays a randy, crusty old Odin disguised as a white-collar con man to perfection. Daniel Oreskes's Shadow, the hero who doesn't know quite what he is, is masterful. Oliver Wyman, who did Mad Sweeney the Leprechaun, is a genius. Hats in the air for the whole cast, a flawless production, and a tour de force of a tale." ( AudioFile)

Great story, perfect audiobook

This production is the reason why I am into audiobooks these days. It's incredibly well produced - a treat for your mind and ears. In my opinion only a handfull of other productions match the quality of this gem (and i haven't come across one that surpasses it) - so do yourself a favour and give it a try. Even if you already know this awesome book, this production will definitly add enough to revisit Neil Gaimans American Gods again (and again). Enjoy!

Gut wieder zurück zu sein

Nachdem ich ich Buch gelesen und die Serie gesehen habe war es schön toll wieder Zeit mit all den wundervollen Figuren zu verbringen und erneut den Drang zu verspüren mehr über die ganzen Götter zu erfahren. Ich möchte gerne jedem der sich für nicht nur für Mythologie aber auch für eine gute Geschichte interessiert, dieses Hörbuch ans Herz legen.
