Finished reading American Gods by Neil Gaiman today.
This book can be classified as Americana with a mix of mythology, but I prefer Urban Fantasy. It has won the 2002 Hugo, Nebula and Bram Stoker awards, all for Best Novel. It was also nominated for Best Novel in the 2002 BSFA Award.
This is not my typical kind of book, but I was very pleasantly surprised. It is entirely readable and it will make a very good movie.
