This is a tough review for me to write I'm not exactly sure what it is about this book that I don't like I'm not sure there even IS something I don't like Since I don't want to just leave you all with the ever popular I'm just not that into it I will try to explainThis book has all the elements of a book I would enjoy The creepiness factor is up there the writing is brilliant the main character is a big lug I couldn't help but love Also I have always been fascinated by mythology so that's a plusShadow is our main character and he just got out of jail after doing his time of three years Right before he is supposed to be released he is let out early because his wife was killed in apparently scandalous circumstances The first 50ish pages were about the extent of where the book was interesting to me Shadow meets Wednesday and then the story turns into a bunch of mini stories and flashbacks and I didn't enjoy most of them Some were okay but the majority just felt like annoying disruptions and I felt myself thinking this is yet another longer book that could benefit from losing about 100 or so pages from the dragging middle Shadow is paid by Wednesday to be an errand boy while he travels America trying to rally his troops in preparation for a war between The old Gods and the new Gods media and money I guess it's my own fault I couldn't really bring myself to care about this war between the new and old Gods because the Gods of Media and Money Not my GodsBooks that are hyped up as much as this one leave me in a place where I tend to get disappointed because it's so hard to live up to those expectations Of course that's not the books fault but I was just expecting to like this book much than I did I never felt engaged while reading this book and that's the reason I couldn't rate this above three stars I could appreciate the great writing and originality however so I couldn't give it below three starsThree stars it is folks but as most of you know this book is loved by almost all so of course I encourage everyone who is interested in this book already to read it and form your own opinions This book didn't do it for me but I am definitely going to try some of Gaiman's other books and see if I have a better experience

Anybody who tells you that the book is about old and new gods or about a man named Shadow or about coin tricks or about having one's head smashed in for losing a game of checkers is selling you a line because those are just details not the story itselfMuch like any Neil Gaiman story the devil is in the details and you just have to resolve yourself to coming along for the ride or you'll miss it It's not one story or two it's many and it's all completeand you have to just read it and enjoy it and accept it Or just don't botherI might as well sell you a violin as sell this book to you or pluck a synopsis of it from behind your ear and then deposit it in my hand only to have it turn into a critical review while your attention is elsewhere But I won't you'll just have to find the magic yourself
