This was a joy to listen to on audio. Spectacular narration aside the story was enthralling - forgotten gods from all beliefs forced to make their way in modern day America as cab drivers, petty criminals, prostitutes etc? Sign me up! Even though the main character, Shadow, is a convict violating his parole I found him to be by far the most respectable, reliable character. I would love to read a book of short stories just focusing on the gods and their various predicaments.
