American Gods

by Neil Gaiman

The world is filled with a variety of people groups, each with their own cultures, stories, legends and gods. At least that's true for traditional people groups. But what happens when you start mixing those people up? What happens when you get a nation of where the majority of people are of immigrant stock, like the United States? What is the traditional American culture? Who are the American gods? Mr. Gaiman plays with the idea of immigrant gods who have come to America with their worshippers and have had to adapt--like any immigrant--with a new culture and way of life. It's an interesting take on American culture woven into an interesting tale.
