After reading about so many different book blogger’s love for anything Neil Gaiman, I finally picked up a book by him. It was one of those classic hardbacks they they sell in Barnes and Noble and includes his novels American Gods and Anansi Boys. I’m halfway through reading American Gods and y’all, it is sooooooooooo BORING! My God I am STRUGGLING to get through this book. I started this days ago and still haven’t finished it.
There are so many mini stories within the major story and none of them seem to connect except to reflect on the demise or decline of old Gods. But many of them don’t even make sense or are simply not interesting. Now since becoming a book blogger, I’ve had no problems tossing aside any book that fails to hold my interest sufficiently and moving onto something else. Life is too darn short to continue reading a book that isn’t interesting. But there is something in me compelling me to finish this one. I guess I’m secretly hoping that all of these stories will finally come together and reveal something profound or major. Or maybe I just like torturing myself!
Anywho, so far I’m not impressed with Mr. Gaiman. But methinks maybe I started with the WRONG novel of his. Anyway, here’s hoping it gets better and I can finish this one soon, because I’m tired of reading it.
Do you have any book things you’d like to confess?
