What happens to gods when the world forgets about them? This is an epic novel about a man named Shadow getting released from prison and having his world turned upside down on him. You slowly learn more about Shadow’s life as the novel goes on and he becomes Mr. Wednesday’s right-hand man while they travel around the U.S. and prepare for a war brewing between the old world gods and the new world gods.
I enjoyed this book. I liked the description of middle America from someone outside the United States describing it from the perspective of gods. I also liked the little history lessons of folklore from different cultures.
