You guys that are a bit lost should pick up the book. It's a quick read and very well done.

Great book. Gaiman is a superb storyteller. His flaw, if there is one, is that his stories tend to be very much about the story itself and not so much the ending.

So I started the thread because I was excited for this ( I never read the book though ).

So now I've decided to read the book first. Im extremely enjoying the book! I should have it finished up soon so I can actually start on the series!

Book first on this one for me. It's the opposite for Game of Thrones. I'm just now reading those books, and I think it is going easier now than if I hadn't seen the show first.

Yeah, that scene was...uncomfortable (as it was no doubt meant to be). It made sense in the context of the story but...uhmmm...yeah...uncomfortable.

Truthfully I had not heard of it until I saw the story that I posted, and then found this thread.

I'm hearing good things, I'll check it out.

Look guys: read the book first. If you like that, then watch the show. You'll know when the "bad" scenes are coming PLUS you might have some understanding when the shit turns weird.

But, for me, the book was awesome so I can't wait!!

The designer of the gun had clearly not been instructed to beat about the bush. 'Make it evil,' he'd been told. 'Make it totally clear that this gun has a right end and a wrong end. Make it totally clear to anyone standing at the wrong end that things are going badly for them. If that means sticking all sort of spikes and prongs and blackened bits all over it then so be it. This is not a gun for hanging over the fireplace or sticking in the umbrella stand, it is a gun for going out and making people miserable with.'

It lost me at that scene. I don't care what people do in their own homes but I don't need to see it. I turned it off.

Is this a stand alone book or is there a series? I have been listening to it on You Tube, and I like it.

It's a stand alone book. There is a sequel, Anansi Boys that has nothing to do with the main character or original story. However there is a short story in an anthology for those of you who are interested in what happens to Shadow afterwards.

Very weird show indeed. I like the direction it was headed in, even though I felt as lost and confused as shadow did. The sheer number of Jesus' at the end cracked me up and Odin's display of power was excellent. Let the war begin.
