About American Gods
American gods
American Gods is a 2001 novel by Neil Gaiman. It is Gaiman's fourth prose novel, and combines fantasy and satire to tell the modern day story of protagonist Shadow. The central premise of American Gods is that gods and other mythological figures are real in the modern world, but their power and influence depends on the belief of humans. Obviously, that puts some gods in a tight spot due to modern sensibilities. Deities from the Greco-Roman, Nordic, Hindu, Egyptian, and Judeo-Christian pantheons all make an appearance. Mythological figures like Odin are the central characters of American Gods. In addition, new gods have sprung up, thanks to America’s restructured belief in things like the internet, drugs, and celebrities. The central conflict of the book is a brewing war between the old gods and the new, played out in various locations across the United States and the world.
