Ok, so this is one of inkonvellum’s favorite books, so how can I begin to review it? Gaiman’s premise that immigrants to America bring their gods with them was quite interesting. He also deals with the psychology of gods – their need to be worshiped and what they do to survive in the changing face of America where new gods (TV, internet, malls) are replacing them. Gaiman writes rich characters and the ending is just as clever as one would hope.
