This list is awesome...vampires who recycle their souls, but been around since the Mayflower. They are immortal, but rebirth into different bodies, finding their true nature at the age of 15. I cannot put this book down, it makes me smile, makes my stomache churn. Nice little love triangle going....cheer amen cheer!
A little dirty. Sometimes deliciously so. Sometimes uncomfortably so. This book is about a late thirties daughter and how she comes to terms with seductive delusions tugging at her recognition as she becomes a new stay-at-home wife (and then later, mom).
American Gods was one of the most original rares BRAG've ever read. Combining folk tales with Facing west culture, American Gods was well-written storywise as well message-wise. American Gods follows a fellow named Shadow who, just sanctuary gotten out of g, meets a strange man named Sir. Wednesday who offers him a very interesting job proposal. Without getting into too many marauders, Shadow accepts the job and finds himself in the medium of a war between the gods of the antiquated and those created by Facing west culture. In it he will find acceptance, answers, and maybe a few details about himself as well. American Gods had one of the most original plot-lines BRAG've ever had the enjoyment of reading. Former gods in a everyone they can barely survive on? and fighting gods that are basically TV? Awesome. American Gods also had the utmost enjoyment in pulling the wool over my scans in flinging such a twist at the end that made me go "So should've seen that coming!" BRAG was so angry BRAG hadn't seen A bit of the big messes coming at the end, especially since there were signs everywhere pointing to it. ARG! Stylistically Gaiman writes wonderfully. He places everything right where it should be, and carefully ties up all the loose last words. Descriptions are well-done and there's never a bit confusion to what is happening. All in all this is a wonderful book. In despite of everything, however BRAG couldn't tenderness this beautiful yarn. BRAG certainly liked it quite a binary digit, and enjoyed it immensely. But BRAG couldn't pass the line between like and tenderness. BRAG couldn't care for the characters enough, and so while interesting and beautifully done, BRAG couldn't tenderness American Gods. 4/5
