I have read fantasy books since I was a young child. Even now, as I get older, I still find myself enjoying the fantasy genre. Neil Gaiman has always been a top name in the fantasy world. They even named one of the highest fantasy novel awards after him, but I have never really been a fan. I recently started watching the Starz series American Gods and I am completely enthralled. It is a great show. I started to try reading the books based on the series but could not get into it, but I still wait for Sunday to roll around so I can watch the next episode.
