Book review: American Gods – Neil Gaiman

Thoughts:
From what I understand of it so far, old gods/traditions are trying to find a way to stay alive in consumerist society. The new gods are the physical embodiment of modern day consumerist mentalities. Wednesday is Odin, there are three Russian/Slavic goddesses- the embodiment of dawn, dusk and midnight. There are also two brothers who represent light and dark.
