    It really feels like this book is eternal. Out of this age, out of time.  When you read Neil Gaiman, you are launched into a different place, a world of wonder and poetry but also of primal truth and ancient deities. He will cheer you up and make you cry, he will bring you peace and nervousness. But ultimately, to read Neil Gaiman is to find a deep satisfaction with the odd ways of life. Oh and American god is probably his magnum opus, so I would advise you to read it!

    There is nothing I can write on this book without giving some of it away. So I will write as little as possible. This is not just about a house bigger on the inside and smaller on the outside or a mad man's writings about a movie that has never existed. This is a lot more, and I highly encourage you to read, if you are brave enough, what is in my opinion the best follow up we ever had to Lovecraft's style of writing.
