    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)

    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.

    This is Not a Review

    I was going to write an amazed review, because it is an amazing audiobook. I mean, it had been recommended to me so many times that I had begun to avoid it, if anyone can relate.

    I finished it and immediately want to listen to it again, but Audible, Amazon's daughter, perhaps a modern goddess herself, is forcing me to write a review first.

    I'm not sure I defied her, let's see...

    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!

    an everlasting introduction, an overrated plot

    Don't get me wrong: Neil Gaiman has a fantastic talent to create amazing worlds, he also has the gift to intrigue, so much I want to travel and explore his "worlds" on back of his novels, yearning for the ultimate delighte , which never comes for my part.

    Actually I consider the phenomenon of Neil gaiman overrated and a bit like "the emperor's new clothes", like a critique once said- everyone makes such a fuss about him, that his flaws are overlooked.

    in "American Gods", N.G., hardly ever capitalises on his great ideas and characters, and once again he manages to make his stories appear longish and kind of dull, the characters have no space to evolve and act out, and again he is overstretching the arc of suspense into eternity and then the story ends. (it's like if "lord of the rings" would end in Revendell after those 100 pages of opening words and the first journey).

    this time again, I've lingered around until the end after a great opening of this tedious story with the hope that the story will actually finally kick off and then I asked myself "was that all"??

    Excellent book, excellent production

    The added bits by Gaiman make it especially worthwhile.
    Everyone should listen to this.
    Nothing more to say
