I am all kinds of nerdy excited for the television adaptation of Neil Gaiman’s American Gods. It’s not just the cast, which includes Ricky Whittle (a.k.a. Lincoln from The 100) as Shadow Moon and Ian McShane as Mr. Wednesday. The look, the feel, the timing is right for a revisit of this great fantasy novel.
Not too long ago, I did a re-read of American Gods on audio. It has a full-cast recording, and was, in a word, fantastic. At its most basic level, the novel is a road trip book. It’s about our pasts fighting with our futures. It’s about both moving on and not forgetting.
So while we wait for the Starz (and Amazon Prime) version to arrive, it’s a good time to read up. If you’ve never read American Gods or you just want to relive it, I’ve got you covered.
