Book Short Summary:

Deuses americanos é, acima de tudo, um livro estranho. E foi essa estranheza que tornou o romance de Neil Gaiman, publicado pela primeira vez em 2001, um clássico imediato. Nesta nova edição, preferida do autor, o leitor encontrará capítulos revistos e ampliados, artigos, uma entrevista com Gaiman e um inspirado texto de introdução. A saga de Deuses americanos é contada ao longo da jornada de Shadow Moon, um ex-presidiário de trinta e poucos anos que acabou de ser libertado e cujo único objetivo é voltar para casa e para a esposa, Laura. Os planos de Shadow se transformam em poeira quando ele descobre que Laura morreu em um acidente de carro. Sem lar, sem emprego e sem rumo, ele conhece Wednesday, um homem de olhar enigmático que está sempre com um sorriso no rosto, embora pareça nunca achar graça de nada. Depois de apostas, brigas e um pouco de hidromel, Shadow aceita trabalhar para Wednesday e embarca em uma viagem tumultuada e reveladora por cidades inusitadas dos Estados Unidos, um país tão estranho para Shadow quanto para Gaiman. É nesses encontros e desencontros que o protagonista se depara com os deuses — os antigos (que chegaram ao Novo Mundo junto dos imigrantes) e os modernos (o dinheiro, a televisão, a tecnologia, as drogas) —, que estão se preparando para uma guerra que ninguém viu, mas que já começou. O motivo? O poder de não ser esquecido. O que Gaiman constrói em Deuses americanos é um amálgama de múltiplas referências, uma mistura de road trip, fantasia e mistério — um exemplo máximo da versatilidade e da prosa lúdica e ao mesmo tempo cortante de Neil Gaiman, que, ao falar sobre deuses, fala sobre todos nós.

Book Short Summary:

Amerikanska gudar utkom för första gången 2001 och har översatts till över 30 språk. Efter tre år i fängelse vill Shadow inget hellre än att återvända till sin fru Laura och leva ett stillsamt liv med henne. Men bara dagar innan han friges nås han av nyheten att Laura dött i en mystisk bilolycka, och hela Shadows värld rasar samman. På flygresan hem till begravningen skakas planet av en våldsam storm, och en man som kallar sig mr Wednesday presenterar sig för Shadow och påstår sig vara en före detta gud och kungen av Amerika. På något sätt verkar han veta precis allt om Shadow och erbjuder honom ett jobb som hans livvakt. Shadow, som inte har någon annan stans att ta vägen, tar jobbet men upptäcker snart att hans roll i Wednesdays planer är farligare än han någonsin hade kunnat föreställa sig. Ganska snart dras Shadow och Wednesday in i en konflikt lika gammal som mänskligheten själv. För under vardagens stilla yta pågår en kamp om Amerikas själ. Neil Gaimans spektakulära roman Amerikanska gudar utgavs för första gången på svenska år 2003 och har vunnit en mängd priser. Det är en mörk och brokig resa rätt in i myternas värld, där Neil Gaiman med sin mästerliga berättarkonst väver samman verklighet och fantasi. Romanen är nu aktuell som TV-serie, med Ricky Whittle, Ian McShane, Emily Browning och Pablo Schreiber i huvudrollerna.

Book Short Summary:

Wild and unpredictable, brother to the sea, older than the creatures that walk the earth or swim in her waters, the Changer delights in countless shapes. When someone attempts to wipe out his family, the Changer discards coyote form and descends from the wilderness to call in a few favors from none other than King Arthur himself. But Arthur has problems of his own. The Lustrum Review is about to meet and the tenuous accord that holds the athanor community in loose alliance is being challenged. Some of the challengers merely desire to see a few restrictions dropped. Others wish to see the Accord destroyed – and if Arthur and his closest allies are destroyed with it, they would be delighted. For Arthur, the Changer’s arrival, ominous as it may be could also be a wonderful opportunity to demonstrate how the Accord serves even the most ancient among their immortal community. He also hopes that their alliance will serve to anchor this wild one more firmly to his cause. Yet nothing is ever that simple. Before the Changer takes his revenge, those who have called themselves gods and have been the root of many a heroic legend will find themselves threatened with destruction. The very earth itself will shake. And a coyote pup―sole survivor of the Changer’s murdered family―will discover both her weakness and her hidden strength. New to this edition of Changer―special introduction by the author!

Book Short Summary:

Paul is a man whose fondness for life on the edge turns his midlife crisis into a nuclear meltdown. Happy to leave his life behind in America, Paul boards a freighter bound for Panama with a backpack and a few thousand dollars, ready to conquer a new wilderness. With a boat, balls, and his newfound brothers, Paul—now calling himself Puma—leads a small but tight-knit group on a meteoric rise as a new criminal empire. With nothing left to lose, Puma operates with fearless abandon, further cementing his relationship as a member of Panamanian organized crime. While running guns and cocaine from the United States to Colombia and back to Panama, Puma transforms into a modern-day smuggler who soon becomes a blip on the CIA’s radar screen. But Puma’s path is about to take a new direction when, propelled by his desire to make a friend’s dream come true, he steps in to make the biggest deal of his life. In this gripping thriller, a smuggler who gives himself freely to the winds of destiny’s path and through God’s mysterious ways finds his larger purpose—a seeker of justice for the defenseless, the forgotten, and the unavenged.
