American Gods (or The Best Goddamn Urban Fantasy Ever)

As soon as I read the first page I came and started farting.
  Neil Gaiman, you love him or hate him, he's given us everything from hugely popular graphic novels to Dr. Who scripts, to odd movie adaptations of some of his lesser quality novels.

  And then this, this fucking book. I swear on everything holy, if you only read one fantasy novel, read this amazing motherfucker right here.

  Just a quick rundown: Bad ass fucking protagonist by the name of Shadow (yes, his name is Shadow, my fiance flat out refuses to let me name our first child Shadow, because she is a soulless bitch), but yeah, Shadow meets up with a one eyed, bearded, old fucker named Wednesday, things happen, a trip across the U.S. ensues where many interesting players are met.

  Now here's the hook: Gods are real. They're tangible beings that interact with people on a daily basis, all of the old religions that came along with the various peoples that immigrated to the United States throughout history brought along the deity or deities that they worshiped. Sounds fucking awesome huh? Well it is.

   So this is where we're at with this: Go out and buy this book, then clear your fucking calender because you're gonna tear into it like a lion on a baby deer.

  12. And so this is his "soulless bitch" whom he just sat there and told me to read his page and I come across this one. Now the best part of this is I am going to be able to give him shit and use this against his ass but I also have the knowledge that he was just joking, along with the fact that I am allowing him to pick the middle name of our son when we have one and we have agreed on the middle name of Danger. Yes that is how much I love him, our son when we have him will be Logan Danger (Lastname). Just thought I would make myself feel better here.
