American Gods- Neil Gaiman

Neil Gaiman writes a story about probably what he knows best. Gods of various cultures engaged in a war with each other, a protoganist with a dead wife who watches over him. Lots of interesting tidbits of information (like the origin of easter) and the usual guess why Odin can also be called wednesday.
An engaging story though nowhere near Gaimans best work which in my opinion is found in the comics he writes. Its probably due to the fact that his work in comics has been ground breaking but in the novel world it is merely really good.
Still worth a read, though i saw the end coming
