American Gods Blog, Post 115

Entertainment Weekly reviews's out! And I hear the House on the Rock photo is good.

Not impressed by the review though -- shallow reading, and the reviewer seemed to have missed a number of things (eg. Messrs Stone, Wood, Town et al aren't gods of any kind -- that's made about as clear in the text as anything can be) and he manages not only to give away the end but to demonstrate that he hasn't understood it either. Lots of nice quotes of the kind one can stick on a dust-jacket, and the ranking on Amazon's soared since it came out, which means it's done its job of telling people the book's out there.
