Review of American Gods

60 minutes

A war is brewing between old and new gods: the traditional gods of biblical and mythological roots from around the world steadily losing believers to an upstart pantheon of gods reflecting society’s modern love of money, technology, media, celebrity and drugs.

What's wrong with this review?

Let us know why you think this review is inappropriate.

I think the most important thing to say in a review for those that don't know the book is this: do NOT give up, do NOT get frustrated because you don't understand. You will get it. It has nothing to do with not having read the book or the producers and writers being bad at their job. It's because this is how it is supposed to be. The idea is for you to enjoy it as it is. Enjoy the individual short stories and follow Shadow (who is as clueless as the viewer/reader). And as you watch you WILL get the information and get to know what is going on.

Edit after watching season 1:

I LOVE it. I can´t wait for season 2!

For new watchers, I recommend waiting until chapters 4 and 5 before considering giving up. 4 gives you the story of Laura and Shadow. And 5 makes clearer what is going on with Wednesday, Media, Technical Boy.... If after that you are still not hooked... well... I would still watch to the end. XDDDDDDD But it's probably the earliest you can decide "I know better what it is about, and it's not my thing".
