Second only to Sandman

User Review  - GodsOnlyMistake - Flipkart

The sort of book that doesn't explain much in the beginning but lets you learn things as the story builds; One thing's certain though,even if Mythology isn't your strong suit you'll be thinking about American Gods for days after you've read it. Read full review

About the author (2006)

Neil Gaiman is a messy-haired white male author trapped in the body of an identical author with perhaps even less-tidy hair. Despite being English, he lives more in America than he does anywhere else in the world, and is currently somewhere in his mid-forties.
