After a vote by his fans in celebration of his blog’s seventh birthday, Neil Gaiman’s American Gods novel is now available on HarperCollins’ website using their Browse Inside technology.
I’ve already read American Gods, but I wanted to take this opportunity to recommend it to any of you who would like to check it out without having to spend any of your hard earned money. The novel is one of those rare books for me that grabbed a hold of me and kept me until the very end. I carried that book around the house with me, wanting to take advantage of any chance I could get to read this great story. Most of all, Mr. Gaiman made me care about the main protagonist Shadow, and what was happening to him.
The only downside to this is that it’s not available for download, so you won’t be able to read it on your computer offline or on your mobile reading device such as the Sony Reader. Maybe you will be able to read it on the Kindle. I don’t know. I see this more as a way for you to read the first chapter maybe, to see if you want to buy a physical copy of the book.
Anyhow, let me know if you haven’t read American Gods and if you take advantage of this offer. I’m curious as to what you think of the “Browse Inside” technology.
