The premise of the book is wonderful and the the character development is just great. I just struggled with the flow and scale of the narrative, plus the ending was very very lack lustre. The underlying issues are never resolved, am I to assume everyone just gets along.
I hate to criticise as the idea behind the story is so wonderful and the book has some great moments. I would just would have liked more context regarding the story and greater emphasis placed on some of the EPIC moments, which are simply referred too instead of specifically described.
Maybe its just me, but i wasn't feeling it.
If your reading this and trying to decide on what to read next, might i suggest Red Rising Trilogy by David Pierce. Those books were simply amazing and very easy to read.
The premise of this book made me think - 'This is not for me'.
How wrong can a gal be?
Engrossing. Scary, funny bits, Mythological gods re-visited. Invoked a very cold wintery part of the US. Had to turn up my heating - that is how good the writing is.
Gaiman makes the fantastical plausible and creatures you should not like, you end up caring for.
This is a story about a Cold War of the gods and how they might still exist within us all if we believe in them- after all isn't the only reason celebrities get power because we believe in them?
It's also a book about America and whilst written some time ago is still contemporaneous.
Well worth the second read
Read it, then watch the series on Prime!
