New Book Club Selection: American Gods

I seem to have the problem of thinking I've posted something on the blog and then realizing far too late that I never did.


Sorry.

American Gods: A Novel
Click me!
Be that as it may, I'd like to announce the next Inciting A Riot Book Club selection! We will be reading American Gods by Neil Gaiman. I have already finished the book, and I cannot wait to reread it before the official book club discussion! The questions of deity, fate, lineage, power, and human nature that this novel brings up are both poignant and a perfect tie-in with the Doughtheistic Riot.

If you like fantasy novels, adventure novels, stories about road trips, my crazy ideas on deity, or Wednesday, then get thee a copy of American Gods by Neil Gaiman.

Now, here's the good part: YOU - yes, YOU - can be a part of the podcast group discussion of this book club selection! But, you have to hurry up and read the book! So far the panel includes myself, Velma Nightshade, and Cory from New World Witchery. I'm looking for at least one, possibly two, more Rioters to join our panel. What I need from you is to: 1) read the book and 2) send me a list of your thoughts, questions, ideas, and feedback about the book.

Out of those that send me their feedback I will look through the questions and feedback and see what fits in with the discussion panel best. If you're selected, I will email you to get a date and time worked out so that you can skype in with the group! This is not only a way to get on the show and discuss a great book, but to talk to some of your other favorite podkin!

So, get American Gods by Neil Gaiman and get it read by the end of February!

Love and Lyte,

Fire Lyte

  2. I JUST finished re-hearing this book (I <3 Audiobooks) the other week when I was sick as a dog w/ the flu. Nothing like hearing an epic tale when you're bedridden!

  4. This is my favorite book, thank you for shining light on it - the concept that we make our own gods just as we are influenced by them is brilliantly put in story format. Neil Gaiman is one heck of a storyteller!

  6. I've had this book on my shelf for over a year. I couldn't get into it - despite loving Neil - after reading The Graveyard Book (also great) but when you mentioned it, I made a note to dig up my copy.

    Started reading it Saturday morning at about 2AM and subsequently read 304 pages in a day. I almost couldn't put it down. Thank you for the recommendation!
