I'm a terrible, terrible readalong host, and have a feeling I should never do this again - lol.
So. We're what, about ... two to three weeks into it, right?
How's it going?
How far along are you? Are you enjoying it? Have you inhaled it already? Are you finding it a struggle? What do you think of the basic concept of the story?
Of Shadow? Of Gaiman's narrative voice?
I'm something like ... 200 pages in. But I have read American Gods before, and I love it. It's such a beautifully simple idea - that when people immigrate to America, they bring their gods with them. I haven't had a chance to do what I really want to do - sit down with it for a few hours and really get stuck in - for me, American Gods isn't really a pick-up-put-down kind of book: it demands time, and attention. Hopefully this weekend I can take American Gods on a date.
So - how are you going? Thoughts? Either discuss in the comments, or leave a link to your blog post and I'll drop by.
Er. Probably. I'm a little forgetful.
