American Gods

I’m about halfway through Neil Gaiman’s American Gods and am having difficulty putting it down to do things like work, eat, sleep, etc..

What I really love about it at the moment is even though I’m at the midpoint of the book and the main plot is still obscured, (which works out well since Shadow, the protagonist, doesn’t really know what’s going on either) Gaiman’s storytelling ability manages to keep my attention even when the characters are doing little more than eating in a diner.

Other books I’m reading at the moment.

Complete Works of Shakespeare (Currently reading “As You Like It”)

William Shirer’s Rise and Fall of the Third Reich which I read about fifteen years ago and thought I would give it an encore. I have Shirer’s Berlin Diary coming in from Amazon which will go well with the Rise and Fall.

And finally, I’m re-reading Huckleberry Finn.

And you?
