American Gods

In Jay Garmon's review of Neil Gaiman's American Gods, he writes: "What sets American Gods apart and earned this book so many accolades is that Gaiman goes out of his way to write his novel the hard way, ignoring all the easy Dickensian/Dean Koontz tricks that could have easily shown up in a book like this. Along the way, Gaiman celebrates the unique elements of Americana that simply don't exist elsewhere–the roadside attractions and hidden worlds that thrive only in the corners of a nation built around highways–while avoiding the easy icons of New York, Los Angeles, and the other major cities we're used to seeing on TV."
