Gah! I loved American Gods! I curse myself for not reading it sooner!
The mythology alone was enough to keep me engaged. I mean, seriously? The physical embodiment of gods trekking around America? Freaking fabulous! Add in beautiful prose and memorable characters and it's easy to lose yourself in Gaiman's world.
Following Shadow on his journey across, and even behind the scenes of, America is one of my favorite adventures ever. Aside from the changing landscape, there's a familiarity to so many places given that I've travelled America enough in reality to relate to many of the scenes. I grew up devouring so many of these legends that it felt like a walk down memory lane - the pleasant kind.
