American Gods * The Great Reveal of Shadow’s origin

*SPOILERS* I have finished the great masterpiece of American Gods Book Review * Neil Gailman this weekend and I was pretty surprised to find out who Shadow Moon was. Gaiman isn't giving everything away - a lot is "hidden" away in crevices in the text on the page. You have to think about it, what happens, who… Continue reading American Gods * The Great Reveal of Shadow’s origin

American Gods Book Review * Neil Gailman

With the release of the American Gods TV Show, I decided to give the book a go and it is good! Very good! What do you worship? The American Gods TV Series Isn't Afraid to Go Full-On Weird, and That's What Makes It Great There aren’t many authors who have the kind of fandom that Neil Gaiman… Continue reading American Gods Book Review * Neil Gailman

Excerpts

American Gods – There was a girl, and her uncle sold her – Excerpt

There was a girl, and her uncle sold her. Put like that it seems so simple. No man, proclaimed Donne, is an island, and he was wrong.

I got interested in this great classic of American literature after watching the movie starring Ewan McGregor and I thought -… Continue reading American Pastoral * Philip Roth Book Review

Orson Scott Card * Empire Book Review

I was recommended this book because it deals with politics. It was more a polemic than a novel, and its attempts to be non-biased were far outweighed by the moments of its blatant one side-ness. If you area a strong supporter of the right and think that our patriotic duty is to not question either… Continue reading Orson Scott Card * Empire Book Review

Orson Scott Card * Seventh Son

This short book (well short by MY standards) starts off the Alvin Maker series with the birth of the seventh son in the family of a seventh's son. This mythical happening is filled with magic and even as the boy was being born, the water wanted to kill him. As the story goes on, we… Continue reading Orson Scott Card * Seventh Son
