Neil Gaiman’s American Gods
Source: His website
Let’s be real: Neil Gaiman doesn’t need my help selling books.
But I’m recommending his “American Gods” novel this week anyway and the reason is simple. It’s about to become a TV show.
I’m a massive advocate of reading the book before the show or movie comes out. You’ll never get back the “pure” experience of reading the book after a show or movie comes out. The act of reading the book will always have been compromised by the show or movie.
So, I’m urging you, before the pictures and spoilers start popping up all over whatever your favorite social media outlet is, go read this. It’s really freakin’ good. Missing out on part of the experience of this book because you waited too long would be… well, it would just make me really sad for you.
I’m not even going to say any more about the book. Just do yourself a favor and get to it before your Facebook feed does.
