Number of Pages:

Back of Book Description:

Shadow is a man without a past. But now he wants nothing more than to live a quiet life with his wife and stay out of trouble. Until he learns that she's been killed in a terrible accident.

Flying home for the funeral, as a violent storm rocks the plane a strange man in the seat next to him introduces himself. The man calls himself Mr. Wednesday, and he knows more about Shadow than is possible.

He warns Shadow that a far bigger storm is coming. And from that moment on, nothing will ever be the same....

My Rating: A+

This is an outrageously good story. A wonderful book. I swear many many times I had to put it down and go "What would it be like to live inside this mans head" The things he brought to life were just crazy and fantastic. I was amazed with every turn. I loved all the stories within the stories, and for a longer book, they helped to keep it from getting boring. Not that a book like this could be. I'm so glad I decided to read it.

I recommend it to one and all.


  1. Neil Gaiman is such an amazing author. I've read a couple of his books now and cannot believe how different they are from one another and both so good! I am glad you enjoyed this one too. :-)

  2. Oh, he's my a favorite of mine. Good Omens is my all time favorite book ever. Have you read it?

  3. I haven't yet read Good Omens, but I hope to someday. I've read American Gods and Stardust by Neil Gaiman. I really enjoyed both.
