I stumbled across this book whilst wandering around aimlessly in a department store. I’m aware of the TV series but have not yet seen it. It’s better to read the source material first, anyway. And what a find this novel was. Supernatural beings grifting through everyday society. Gods degrading themselves and others. Pettiness. Jealousies. Heavy drinking and smoking. Not exactly role models. More than once I laughed at the All Father’s curmudgeonly behavior and tête-à-têtes with our hero ‘Shadow’. I got completely absorbed by Neil Gaimon’s supernatural thriller. Hold up a moment. I’m gonna relabel this. It’s a supernatural farce. Seriously. But it is a damn excellent read. And I’m a little sad I’ve reached the end of it. 5 stars.
